Pacino gets set to hunt some Nazis
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.
