The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Logan Lerman is in negotiations to play the lead role in Amazon’s upcoming drama series The Hunt.
Inspired by real-life events, The Hunt revolves around a group of Nazi hunters living in New York in 1977.
Logan Lerman (whose credits include The Perks of Being A Wallflower and Fury), if he signs, would be playing the lead, Jonah Heidelbaum, who, when his grandmother is slain by a mysterious intruder in their apartment, sets out to track the culprit…only to find himself swept up in the mysterious organisation known as The Hunt, a group of justice-seeking individuals dedicated to rooting out Nazi war criminals living in the U.S under assumed identities.
The ten-episode drama is created and written by David Weil, while Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions are producing the project with Sonar Entertainment. Nikki Toscano will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series.
