Last year it was announced that Get Out helmer Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions is teaming with Sonar Entertainment to produce The Hunt, a ten-episode Nazi-hunting drama which was subsequently picked up by Amazon.
Well, we now have our first piece of casting news, with Variety reporting that Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) has signed on to portray a character called Jonah Heidelbaum. When his grandmother is murdered, Jonah sets out to find the culprit, only to become swept up with ‘The Hunt’, a mysterious group of Nazi hunters dedicated to rooting out Nazis living in the U.S. under assumed identities who are conspiring to create a Fourth Reich.
