With more mass killings, Universal pulls release of ‘The Hunt’
David Rogers | Staff Writer
As America and the world reels from yet more atrocious, unprovoked killings, Universal Pictures has pulled the release of a new movie.
With $18 million budgeted, the film was originally planned to have been released on September 27, 2019. However, following the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings in early August, Universal Pictures decided to shelve the release of the film.
Prior to the film’s shelving, it attracted criticism from some in the conservative media as an alleged portrayal of liberal people hunting supporters of President Donald Trump. Trump issued a tweet on August 9, 2019, saying that, “The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos”.
Although Trump did not specify the name of the film, The Washington Post said it was “most likely” a reference to The Hunt.
The Hunt is an unreleased American satire thriller film directed by Craig Zobel and co-written by Damon Lindelof. It stars Ike Barinholtz, Betty Gilpin, Emma Roberts and Hilary Swank. It was being released with an R rating.
The Hunt’s website has also been directed back to the main Universal site, however the message below did appear as somewhat of a statement from Universal.
The studio has made no further announcements on if and when it will be released.
