JUST IN: Studio Cancels ‘The Hunt’ Amid Backlash for Hunting Trump Supporters

The Hollywood Studio behind the movie “The Hunt” has cancelled the movie after a backlash from conservatives and some liberals over the movies content and nature.


Now while I thought the movie was in poor taste, we still have a first amendment right in America.

I don’t believe the Studio should have cancelled it.

The following is from Deadline.com

Universal will not be releasing Blumhouse’s The Hunt on Sept. 27 as planned. Deadline hears that a collective decision was made by Universal leadership, led by Donna Langley, with The Hunt filmmaking team. For this particular film, it’s better to wait. 

The news of Universal canceling The Hunt comes in the wake of putting the brakes on the pic’s marketing campaign in the wake of the El Paso, TX; Dayton, OH; and Gilroy, CA mass shootings. 

The studio released the following statement this morning: “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.”
