The Most Dangerous Game: Bruce Dern, Judd Nelson, & Casper Van Dien join cast, images unveiled

A couple weeks ago, we heard that Tom Berenger of Platoon and Chris ‘CT’ Tamburello of MTV’s The Challenge would be starring in the latest adaptation of Richard Connell’s 1924 short story The Most Dangerous Game, alongside Elissa Dowling (Girl on the Third Floor), Kevin Porter (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Edward Finlay (Justin Lee’s Final Kill), and Randy Charach (Zombie Tidal Wave). Now Deadline has reported that Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight), Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), and Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) are also in the cast – and they’ve released a batch of first look images, which you can check out below.

Written and directed by Justin Lee, this version of The Most Dangerous Game begins when

father and son are washed ashore after their steamership explodes. The men find refuge on a mysterious island where their nefarious host, Baron Von Wolf, reveals to them that the island is his game preserve where human beings serve as the ultimate hunt.

Berenger’s character is “a man who has been hiding on the island but whose sanity is on the verge of collapse”. It hasn’t been revealed exactly who the other cast members are playing.

The Most Dangerous Game is being produced by Koenig Pictures, along with Quiet On Set, Charach Productions, and Greenfield Media. Ed Morrone and Michelle Ng receive producer credits, while Bill Sondheim and Randy Charach serve as executive producers. Mill Creek Entertainment has come on board to co-produce, and they will be overseeing the North American release of the film.

Production is taking place on the Koenig Pictures Backlot in the Pacific Northwest, and the goal is to have The Most Dangerous Game ready for a summer 2022 release. The cast has convinced me that I’m going to have to watch this movie when it comes out next year.
