The Filmmakers are proud to have had the support of these companies in the making of ‘The Hunted’.


THE HUNTED follows family-man and hunter Jake, played by Josh Stewart, alongside his best friend Stevie as they journey deep into the Appalachians of West Virginia on the hunt for a renowned, massive buck. Chasing their dream of landing a television hunting show, the duo head into the dense, secluded mountains armed with only their bows and camera equipment. Given a timeframe of just a few days to win over producers with the legendary kill the friends quickly realize there is something else that stirs within the woods. Something that turn-by-turn begins to hunt them…

After months on the high-budget set of The Dark Knight Rises, Stewart needed a breeze of change – something to spark his creativity and bring his talent home. The script for THE HUNTED materialized from this desire and led him down the path to his very first endeavor directing. Growing up in rural West Virginia, Stewart spent much of his youth fly-fishing and hunting in the sprawling woods where THE HUNTED found its home.

“THE HUNTED is based on a true story that actually happened to me and my roommate /best friend back in college,” said Stewart. “It’s a story I have always wanted to tell. Creatively I was just looking for something that would be a true testament to filmmaking while telling a story through something I’ve been doing my whole life, hunting. .. There’s something to be said for the shift back to telling a cool story to make a film work.”

In rounding out that crew of dedicated people, Stewart approached long-time friends Brett Forbes and Patrick Rizzotti of Fortress Features about producing the film immediately. The trio first worked together beginning in 2009 as Stewart starred in horror features The Collector and The Collection.

An outdoorsman at heart, Stewart was no stranger to the simplistic world they inhabited during the shoot. After working all over the world, the genuine nostalgic experience of coming home to film in his own backyard was invaluable. His love for the region created focus on making all elements of the film realistic enough to appeal to fellow hunters. Everything from the equipment, apparel and even safety measures were true to form – a quality only found on hunting shows not in fictional work.

Before shooting began, the filmmakers reached out to the most respective hunting brands in the industry in order to make the film. Industry brand leaders, BowTech Archery, Realtree, Scentblocker, Trophy Ridge, Leuopold and Cabellas quickly signed on to be a part of the project because of Stewart’s efforts to not sensationalize the sport.
















FORTRESS FEATURES, formed in 2004 by Brett Forbes and Patrick Rizzotti, produced THE HUNTED, directed and written by Josh Stewart (DARK KNIGHT RISES); the critically acclaimed PRIDE (Lionsgate),  starring Academy Award Nominee Terrence Howard and Bernie Mac; horror franchise movies THE COLLECTOR and THE COLLECTION from writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (SAW 4-7, FEAST);  and SYRUP (Magnolia), starring Amber Heard (ZOMBIELAND) and Shiloh Fernandez (EVIL DEAD). Fortress produced its first short SEQUENCE, directed by Carles Torrens (APARTMENT 143), which recently won Best of the Fest at the 2013 LA Film Shorts Festival. Fortress is in post-production on BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, a horror/action/comedy starring Fran Kranz (CABIN IN THE WOODS), Pedro Pascal (GAME OF THRONES) Joey Kern (SUPER TROOPERS) written, directed by Dr. God.


Field & Stream: Watch The Hunted, If You Dare

No matter how old you are or how long you’ve hunted, walking to and from your stand in the dark is spooky. On one hand, you know what’s out there. On the other, you don’t exactly—and that surge of raw fear wells up. Naturally, you push it away. “The Hunted” pulls it in close. Scary close. It does this little by little—first by telling a simple story we all understand […]

Christopher Jimenez August 5th 2014, 5:07 pm Sincere is not the usual word used when it comes to horror films. Many other words come to mind, but not that one. Strange then that sincere is a word that rang in my head throughout Josh Stewart’s excellent directorial debut film, The Hunted. Is it scary? Yes it is, but also honest. It has been a while since I saw a film like this […]

The Hunted Review

Triple threat Josh Stewart writes, directs, and stars in THE HUNTED, a chilling found footage thriller set in the West Virginian woods. Though it doesn’t exactly blaze new territory within the genre (and comparisons to THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT will be inevitable), it is 88 minutes of unrelenting terror – and the third act will have you holding your breath and hiding behind the person next to you… Based on […]
