The title is one we’ve heard a few times before for various other projects, but even so director Antoine Blossier’s debut feature Proie (Prey) sounds promising. It’s currently in post-production with an anticipated release date in its home country of France later this year.
Here’s the film’s synopsis courtesy of distributor Rezo Films’ website:
In his stepfamily’s countryside retreat, Nathan knew that the traditional autumn family reunion was going to be particularly stormy. Claire, his wife, had to announce her recent pregnancy, and tough decisions would need to be made to prevent the family’s pesticides business from closing down. But on the first night a terrorized deer mysteriously attacks Claire’s father. The men decide to venture into the surrounding forest to find the reasons of the animal’s odd behaviour. Carrying a shotgun for the first time in his life and witnessing the growing tensions between the father and his sons, Nathan soon discovers that the hunting season is not over yet … Now they’ve become the prey.
Somewhere in-between The Descent, Jaws, and Deliverance, Prey takes a family on the verge of explosion into a dark forest, where mysterious creatures seem to be out of control. Human nature can be scarier than the darkest woods.
The film stars Grégoire Colin as Nathan, Bérénice Bejo as Claire, François Levantal, and Aurélien Recoing and is produced by Polaris Film Finance & Production and Quasar Pictures.
We’ll be keeping an eye on this one so keep it here for more as it comes.
