The Collector Star Josh Stewart's Directorial Debut The Hunted Dated for ReleaseFresh off of playing the badass Arkin O’Brien in both The Collector and The Collection, Josh Stewart makes his directorial debut with the found footage flick The Hunted, headed our way next month. Full release details have just emerged from the woods so read on!

From the Press Release
THE HUNTED follows family man and hunter Jake, played by Josh Stewart, alongside his best friend Stevie (Ronnie Gene Blevins) as they journey deep into the Appalachians of West Virginia on the hunt for a legendary buck.

Chasing their dream of landing a television hunting show, the duo head into the dense, secluded mountains armed with only their bows and camera equipment. The friends quickly realize there is something else that stirs within the woods. Something that, turn by turn, begins to hunt them…

Written and directed by and starring Stewart, THE HUNTED was inspired by the actor’s desire to spark his creativity and bring home his talent after spending months on the high-budget set of The Dark Knight Rises. Growing up in rural West Virginia, Stewart spent much of his youth fly-fishing and hunting in the sprawling woods where the film is set. An outdoorsman at heart, the first-time director made every effort to ensure the film would feel as authentic as possible to fellow hunters. Everything from the equipment, apparel, and even safety measures was true to form – a quality typically only found on hunting shows, not in fictional work.

Stewart said, “Anyone who’s ever spent any amount of time in the woods has come across something you can’t explain, especially after dark. Every hunter I know has a story. This is mine.”

Before shooting began the filmmakers reached out to the most respected hunting brands in the industry. Moved by Stewart’s passion and dedication to the sport, brand leaders Realtree, BowTech Archery, Scentblocker, Trophy Ridge, Leupold, and Cabela’s quickly signed on to be a part of the project.

The Hunter arrives on DVD and VOD September 9, 2014.

  • Audio commentary with Josh Stewart and producers
