WATCH: Universal cancels the release of The Hunt.
The Hunt was due in theaters this September but Universal Pictures has canceled the release.
Statement from Universal: “While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film." “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”
The Hunt follows 12 conservative red-state strangers who wake up and realize that they’re being hunted by liberals. It was scheduled for release on September 27th.
