Back in August of last year we brought you the first poster for THE HUNTED, a new found footage horror tale from actor/writer/director Josh Stewart, who may be best known to genre fans as Arkin in Marcus Dunstan's THE COLLECTOR and its badass sequel THE COLLECTION. We later learned that Entertainment One had picked the film up for distribution out of last years AFM. Now we've learned when you can expect to see THE HUNTED as well as bringing you the latest poster for the film, which you can peep below.
THE HUNTED will be launching limited theatrical engagements starting June 19th via Tugg this summer prior to a home video release in September. Fortress Features and producers Patrick Rizzotti, Brett Forbes and Josh Stewart have teamed up with Tugg.com to launch theatrical screenings of the hunting-themed thriller THE HUNTED in cities across the country. Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises, The Collector, Criminal Minds) wrote, directed and stars in the film, which is based on an experience from his college days.
THE HUNTED follows family-man and hunter Jake, played by Stewart, alongside his best friend Stevie as they journey deep into the Appalachians of West Virginia on the hunt for a renowned, massive buck all the while filming. Chasing their dream of landing a television hunting show, the duo head into the dense, secluded mountains armed with only their bows and camera equipment. Given a timeframe of just a few days to win over producers with the legendary kill the friends quickly realize there is something else that stirs within the woods. Something that turn-by-turn begins to hunt them...
THE HUNTED will be hitting VOD and DVD in September.
