New Details Revealed For Jordan Peele's Nazi Hunting Series THE HUNT
Jordan Peele is currently producing a fascinating new series for Amazon called The Hunt. Al Pacino, Logan Lerman and Jerrika Hinton are all set to star in the series, and today we have some new information to share with you.
The Hunt is a “Nazi-hunting vengeance drama” that follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. “The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.”
Now we have additional information on the supporting cast as well as all the main characters in the series. The following comes from a press release that /Film got their hands on:
Al Pacino plays “Meyer Offerman,” a powerful and mysterious man who is the leader of a vigilante group known as The Hunters. He befriends Jonah after his grandmother’s murder and becomes his guide through the world of The Hunt.
Logan Lerman plays “Jonah Heidelbaum,” a young man trying to find his place in the world when his Grandmother is brutally murdered in front of him. His desire for revenge leads him to join The Hunt.
Jerrika Hinton plays “Millie Malone,” a brilliant FBI agent (who also happens to be one of the first black, female agents in the bureau). As she investigates a series of suspicious murders, she is drawn closer to the truth about The Hunters.
Saul Rubinek plays “Murray Markowitz” and Carol Kane plays “Mindy Markowitz” – doting grandparents who are members of The Hunt…and weapons experts.
Tiffany Boone plays “Roxy Jones,” a beautiful, street smart member of The Hunters.
Louis Ozawa Changchien plays “Joe Torrance,” a Vietnam Vet who was raised in an internment camp and is now a member of The Hunters.
Lena Olin plays “The Colonel,” a shadowy figure who is the mastermind behind our villains.
Greg Austin plays “Travis Leich”, a fanatical young man whose adherence to the Nazi cause leads him to do whatever dirty job is necessary, no matter how murderous.
Dylan Baker plays “Biff Simpson,” a cold and conniving politician.
This sounds like it’s shaping up to be a great series and I’m sure lots of people will enjoy watching a historical fantasy about killing Nazis.
The Hunt was created by David Weil (Moonfall), and he will write the series. This is an original idea and while it is a fictional story, it does draw from real-life events. The series will consist of 10 episodes.
