The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that James Wan will be producing via Atomic Monster an adaptation of the 1950s science fiction story Hunting Season authored by Frank M. Robinson with Derek Kolstad set to write it.
The project is being pegged as being in the same vein as 1984, The Running Man, and Fahrenheit 451.
Hunting Season will follow a law officer from the future who is declared an enemy of the state and sentenced to be executed by being sent to the past and stalked by a posse. The man has three days to acclimate to his new era and find a way to survive.
Kolstad is best known for creating the John Wick franchise of films and is part of the writing team on Marvel’s limited series The Falcon & The Winter Soldier.
Wan is behind the Saw and The Conjuring franchises. He recently directed the Giallo homage horror film Malignant and is attached to helm a sequel to Aquaman with Jason Momoa set to reprise the titular role.
A director isn’t mentioned in the report.
