Jason Blum hopes to release The Hunt in the future

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the politically-satire driven thriller The Hunt as the country faces another string of horrific mass shootings, and as Universal has shelved the film indefinitely, producer Jason Blum has revealed he is still holding out hope that the film will hit theaters.

In an interview with Vulture, the mastermind behind the small-budget production company Blumhouse Productions spoke on the cancellation of the release of the film and that he’s learned a lot of lessons from the decision.

If I was offered the choice to make the movie again, I would say yes,” Blum said. “We definitely made marketing mistakes, and we made plenty of mistakes along the way. So I’ve learned a lot. It might change how I would position movies and how I would consult on the marketing of the movies. But actually the making of the movies? No.

When asked if there was any possibility for the film to hit theaters at some point, Blum said there’s “definitely” a chance of it getting a release later down the road and that he’s holding out “hope” for it.

The new film, which depicts a group of wealthy people kidnapping and then hunting humans for sport, has been the subject of controversy following the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
