Blumhouse and Damon Lindelof Join Forces for Political Thriller ‘The Hunt’
Blumhouse has never shied away from exploring the political climate of the country, as evidenced by The Purge franchise and last year’s Get Out. In addition to another Purge film headed our way later this year, THR reports today that Blumhouse and Universal are partnering for The Hunt, being described as a political action-thriller.
The script was penned by “Lost” co-creator and Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof, along with Nick Cuse, and it will be directed by Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah).
“While the logline is being kept under wraps, sources tell Heat Vision that the subversive feature takes its cues from the current political climate in America and aggressive nature of right versus the left — taking it to a more extreme, and violent, level.”
Jason Blum will produce for Blumhouse alongside Lindelof, who will produce via his White Rabbit shingle. Cuse and Zobel will executive produce.
