We’ve got our hands on a first official picture of Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the upcoming comedy movie directed by New Zealand Filmmaker Taika Waititi (who’s set to helm Thor 3 Ragnarok) and starring Julian Dennison, Sam Neill, Rima Te Wiata, Rachel House, and Oscar Kightley:
“Ricky is a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together to survive in this heartwarming adventure comedy.”
Hard to recognize Actor Sam Neil on this picture… I thought it was Actor Christopher Lee (who portayed evil wizard Saruman in the Lord of the Rings movie franchise), lol.
No official release date yet.
Update – An interview with the crew:
