the hunt release

Earlier this month, Universal’s decided to indefinitely shelve the The Hunt in lieu of a string of tragic mass shootings and political controversy stirred up by Fox News and Donald Trump.

But The Hunt may have a future in theaters if producer Jason Blum has anything to say about it. The Blumhouse Productions CEO revealed that he thinks a release for The Hunt could happen at some point in the future.

Because of the modern re-emergence of Nazis thanks in large part to our joke of a president, this show is now more relevant than it should ever have been in the year 2017.
