Logan Lerman (“Percy Jackson,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) is in talks to star in the Jordan Peele-produced Nazi-hunting drama series “The Hunt” for Amazon Studios
Drawing from real-life events and set in New York City in 1977, Lerman plays Jonah Heidelbaum, a man whose grandmother is slain by a mysterious intruder in their apartment.
He sets out to track the culprit, only to find himself swept up in a mysterious group of justice-seeking individuals who have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living in the U.S. under assumed identities and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich. The group sets out to hunt them down.
David Weil created the original idea and will also write the series and serves as an executive producer. Peele will executive produce along with Win Rosenfeld, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni.
