The Most Dangerous Game trailer: Casper Van Dien hunts humans in thriller coming this August

We’ve been tracking the progress of writer/director Justin Lee’s new adaptation of Richard Connell’s 1924 short story The Most Dangerous Game ever since the project was first announced, and a while back we even got the exclusive first look at a poster for the film. (The poster can be seen at the bottom of this article.) The Most Dangerous Game is now heading toward an August 5th theatrical and VOD release, and in anticipation of that release date a trailer has arrived online. Check it out in the embed above!

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.

The film stars Tom Berenger (Platoon), Chris ‘CT’ Tamburello (MTV’s The Challenge), Elissa Dowling (Girl on the Third Floor), Kevin Porter (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Edward Finlay (Justin Lee’s Final Kill), Randy Charach (Zombie Tidal Wave), Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight), Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), and Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers). Berenger’s character is “a man who has been hiding on the island but whose sanity is on the verge of collapse”. 

The Most Dangerous Game was 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 is also on board for their first-ever co-production of a scripted feature film.
