Amazon announced on Wednesday that Al Pacino has joined the cast of “The Hunt,” a new series executive produced by Jordan Peele.
The series is another endeavor for Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, which the “Get Out” writer-director started in 2012. In addition to producing that film and its upcoming follow-up, “Us,” along with the Oscar-nominated “BlacKkKlansman,” the company also produces a number of television shows, including “The Last O.G.” for TBS, an update on “The Twilight Zone” for CBS All Access, and “Weird City” on YouTube.
Following a band of Nazi hunters in 1977 New York City, the series will be written by David Weil (“Moonfall”) and Nikki Toscano (“24: Legacy”). The cast also includes Lena Olin, Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, Carol Kane and Dylan Baker.
