Pacino gets set to hunt some Nazis

Ottawa Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Al Pacino is clos­ing in on a deal to make his TV se­ries de­but in a Nazi-hunt­ing drama. The star has ap­peared in TV movies, like Paterno, and mini-se­ries, like An­gels in Amer­ica, but he’s never ap­peared in an episodic tele­vi­sion run — un­til now.

He’s in talks to team up with Lo­gan Lerman for the 10-episode sea­son of Ama­zon’s The Hunt, which will be ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced by Os­car-win­ning Get Out di­rec­tor Jor­dan Peele.

Ac­cord­ing to Dead­line, The Hunt fol­lows a group of Nazi hunters seek­ing out Adolf Hitler’s hench­men in New York City in the late 1970s.

Lerman was among the first cast for the se­ries – he’ll por­tray Jonah Hei­del­baum, who finds him­self swept up by the Nazi hunters as he at­tempts to find the man who mur­dered his grand­mother.
