Jordan Peele is a very busy man.

When it comes to Ther Hunt, Peele has lined up Oscar-winning legend Al Pacino in a key role for the Amazon Prime Video series.

Deadline reports that Pacino stars along with Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson franchise) in a TV series about a team of Nazi hunters. However, this isn’t a World War II movie. It takes place in 1977 when hundreds of Nazis in New York City are trying to create a Fourth Reich in the United States.

It sounds like the perfect series to hit some big-time hot buttons in today’s world. It also joins The Man in the High Castle when it comes to the themes of the stories on Amazon Prime.

Lerman is Jonah Heidelbaum, a man who sets out to find out who killed his grandmother when he finds the mysterious group called The Hunt, who roots out Nazi murderers hiding in the United States.

Amazon Prime gave The Hunt a straight-to-series order in 2018 and with Al Pacino onboard, it should start shooting soon.
