Hunters sees Al Pacino bringing Nazis to justice in New York with the director of Get Out

Rory Cashin


This first trailer has definitely got our attention.

To be honest, before this year, the last thing we remember Al Pacino being a part of was Jack & Jill, the movie in which he falls in love with Adam Sandler dressed as a woman.

In the eight years since then, his IMDb page says he has been keeping busy, but we’ll be damned if we’ve ever heard of any of these: Stand Up Guys, We Are Not Animals, The Humbling, Manglehorn, Danny Collins, Misconduct, The Pirates Of Somalia, and Hangman.

Nope, not a single bell is ringing there.

But then along comes in 2019, and in rapid succession we’ve got him in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and The Irishman, and we could be seeing something of a Pacino-ssance, especially with Hunters his next big project set to be released.

Executive produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us), the 10-episode series sees Pacino playing a Nazi-hunter. But this isn’t your typical WWII-thriller, oh no. At least, not according to the official synopsis, via Deadline:

“[Hunters]  “follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.”

Yes to ALL OF THAT, please and thank you.

Pacino will be joined by Logan Lerman (Fury), Jerrika Hinton (Grey’s Anatomy), Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother), Kate Mulvany (The Great Gatsby), Carol Kane (Addams Family Values), Saul Rubinek (True Romance), Dylan Baker (The Good Wife), and Lena Olin (Mindhunter) in the extremely stacked cast.

No set release date just yet, but we do know that Hunters is set to arrive on Amazon Prime Video some time in 2020.
