Craig Zobel To Helm Politically Charged Action Thriller THE HUNT For Blumhouse And Universal

Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse have reportedly penned a project now being housed in the auspices of Blumhouse and Universal Pictures following a competitive situation. The film in question is titled The Hunt, which is being described over at the The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog as a politically charged action thriller that “…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.”

The project marks the latest for the duo since working on HBO drama, The Leftovers with Craig Zobel who is set to direct the new action thriller. Wednesday’s THR exclusive concludes that Zobel will executive produce as will Cuse, and with Lindelof producing through his White Rabbit banner with Jason Blum over at Blumhouse, the same company that grew its recent successes from such poltically and socially toned thrillers like Get Out and The Purge film franchise.
