Summit Entertainment has acquired the pitch The Last Witch Hunter from Cory Goodman.

The writer behind the upcoming Priest, Goodman has crafted a tale about a witch hunter who is seeing a surge in warlocks and witches and needs to keep the population “in check.” Summit is thinking “franchise” with this, of course.

Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is in line to produce alongside executive producer Adam Goldworm. The Russian auteur behind genre hits like NightWatch and 9 may direct as well.
