The decision was treated with some derision among critics who argued that the polarizing logline for the satirical action thriller, which follows a group of elite liberals who are hunting down a group of people from conservative red states referred to as “deplorables,” shouldn’t be the sole reason that the movie was scrapped. But The Hunt may have a future in theaters if producer Jason Blum has anything to say about it.

Then things get even weirder when the dead niece calls Oyelowo’s character on the phone…from the past. Watch the Don’t Let Go trailer below.
