Distribution rights for Étienne Huet's English-language French-Luxembourgian-Belgian movie The Hunters are being offered for sale by Cinemavault.com Inc.. The movie is now in post-production.

The screenplay for The Hunters was written by Michael Lehman. The movie stars Steven Waddington, Tony Becker, Terence Knox, Jay Brown, Philip Correia, Laurent Barbier, (Étienne) Huet, and Dianna Agron.

Here's a description of The Hunters from the production: "Five regular guys - they could be our colleagues, our neighbors, even our friends... Like us, the computer geek, the waiter, or the civil servant all suffer from life's stresses. But, what is it about their lives that are so unlike ours? The ordinariness of their situations winds up making us uncomfortable, their silence is terrifying. Then one day, the viewer discovers the unmentionable secret... but it is too late. The unimaginable has become real. The Hunters is an original psychological thriller showing five ordinary citizens who have allowed themselves to fall totally outside of normal social behavior, and have constructed an alternative world in their hunting grounds: an old military fort from the 19th century abandoned for decades. In this place, evil becomes the norm and killing becomes commonplace. In the last two years, they have gone from stalking game to hunting and butchering in the dank halls of the fort, transforming the place into a temple of death. No one has ever survived. The viewer is pulled into the nightmare of The Hunters at an accelerated pace, in which the daily reality gets further away from the inexorable hell created by the hunters."

The official website for The Hunters is now functional, and on it is a stills gallery for the movie. Also, there are two stills galleries for the movie on the website of director/actor Chris Briant (a.k.a. Étienne Huet), and footage from the movie in the promo reel for him on it.

The Hunters stars (listed order corresponds to order on official website) Steven Waddington as Ronny, Dianna Agron as Alice, Tony Becker as Oliver, Chris Briant (a.k.a. Étienne Huet) as Le Saint, Terence Knox as the Chief of Police, Jay Brown as Stephen, Xavier Delambre as William, and Philip Correia as David.

Here's a synopsis for The Hunters from the official website for the movie: "Christmas. It's their last week. The countdown has begun... ¶ For these five friends, who could be ourselves, dead-end lives with no future in the relentless city. Their only chance for relief: the nature reserve, where on weekends life takes on meaning again. ¶ ...For Le Saint [Chris Briant (a.k.a. Étienne Huet)], a born soldier, who is now a dependable bureaucrat in a police station following severe wounding in Afghanistan, and who has been assigned a last-chance mission. ¶ ...For Alice [Dianna Agron], whom he met this week: unforgettable eyes and a communicative love of life. Hope is reborn. ¶ But it's already the last day, and they have met by chance in the nature reserve. ¶ But this is not really a nature reserve. ¶ It's an old fort, eaten away by vermin and overrun with vegetation. ¶ And this is not a forest. ¶ Under the trees, there are moats that cannot be crossed and gaping [façades]. ¶ And the five friends no longer resemble us. ¶ Le Saint and Alice have just discovered the unmentionable. But it's too late... ¶ Reality, daily life and everything we thought to be true collapses in an instant, revealing: pure nightmare!"
