Nazis need to work on their PR. Lately it’s been the random Klan rallies that’s been grabbing all of the headlines for unnecessary fuckery. We should all be grateful to Hollywood for faithfully cashing in on sensitive topics like racial divide in America. Someone somewhere is writing a screenplay for Charlottesville right now. It’s always the same movie too. A cinematic attempt at being unbiased but always ends up being self-glorifying huge production studio circle jerk. Statements like “did you see how edgy I was about issues that easily piss most people off” are always within earshot at those offices. Jordan Peele is now taking a swing in making a TV show about a group dedicated to vigilante justice against people pledging their allegiance to the Fuhrer. Peele says it’s based on true events from the 70s so we possibly have a birth of Antifa Sunday evening prime time slot special on our hands.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is the first project from a development deal that Peele signed with Sonar Entertainment earlier this year. The site states that The Hunt will tell the true story of “a diverse band of Nazi hunters in 1970s America as they set out on a quest for revenge and justice–tracking and killing hundreds of Nazis who, with the unconscionable help of the U.S. government, escaped justice and embedded themselves in American society.”
I’m not sure if you can copyright hate in America just yet so making bank on swastika flicks still falls under fair use with freedom of speech. And with that in mind Nazi movies are almost annual with either an educational or purely entertainment angle. That’s why you end up with movies like Schindler’s List to Dead Snow and everything in-between. Imperium with Daniel Radcliffe was last year’s Nazi movie. We should be getting another before the year is out. A Nazis from outer space movie is long overdue if any producers out there are reading this.
