In June, Vin Diesel reported on his Facebook page that the producers of the film are so excited about The Last Witch Hunter that they’ve asked him to block out time in the future for filming a sequel.

He is, of course, quite busy so don’t look for the proverbial cart to get too far ahead of the horse.

Among his projects include the war pic, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which is in post-production and Furious 8, which is due out in 2017.
