The highly anticipated remake of the 1932 classic, The Most Dangerous Game, releases theatrically and digitally on August 5, 2022. This 90 year old film paved the way for the “humans hunting humans is the ultimate sport” genre. Films like Hard Target and Surviving the Game pay homage in one way or another to a premise that never goes out of fashion… the duality of the nature of man.
Mill Creek’s remake brings an impressive cast list that includes veteran tough guy Tom Berenger (Sniper, Eddie and the Cruisers, Last of the Dogmen), Casper Van Dien (our interview – Starship Troopers, Sleepy Hollow, Slayer), the legendary Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight, Nebraska, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, Freaks – our review), Judd Nelson (our interview – The Breakfast Club, Relentless), and Christopher “C.T” Tamburello (Habitual, The Challenge TV series)
From the official press release:
Mill Creek Entertainment, along with Koenig Pictures and Charach Productions, are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated limited theatrical and Day & Date Digital release of The Most Dangerous Game coming August 5, 2022!
In this remake on the 90th anniversary of the 1932 classic, a father and son on a steamer ship bound for a great hunting expedition in the wilds of Alaska are shipwrecked on a mysterious island. Greeted warmly by the island’s only resident, the relieved men are wined and dined, and talk of hunting ensues. When their host reveals the true nature of his trophy hunts, the stranded men are forced to run for their lives or fight to survive on a desolate island that is a human hunting ground.
The action/adventure film boasts an all-star cast including Chris “CT” Tamburello (MTV’s The Challenge, Habitual), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers, Sleepy Hollow), Tom Berenger (Inception, Platoon), Oscar-nominated Bruce Dern (Nebraska, The Hateful Eight) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire).
The film is written, directed, and produced by Justin Lee (Final Kill).
