“Let the hunt begin” for a new title. Yet another film is in the works using the title Prey, this time Antoine Blossier’s French thriller Proie, which carries a very Deliverance-like theme.
“In his stepfamily’s countryside retreat, Nathan knew that the traditional autumn family reunion was going to be particularly stormy. Claire, his wife, had to announce her recent pregnancy, and tough decisions would need to be made to prevent the family’s pesticides business from closing down. But on the first night a terrorized deer mysteriously attacks Claire’s father. The men decide to venture into the surrounding forest to find the reasons of the animal’s odd behavior.
Carrying a shotgun for the first time in his life and witnessing the growing tensions between the father and his sons, Nathan soon discovers that the hunting season is not over yet … Now they’ve become the prey.
Somewhere in-between The Descent, Jaws, and Deliverance, Prey takes a family on the verge of explosion into a dark forest, where mysterious creatures seem to be out of control. Human nature can be scarier than the darkest woods.”
