The Gritty Henry Cavill Crime Thriller On Amazon Prime

You already know that Night Hunter stars Cavill, Oscar winner Kingsley, and rising star Daddario, but what if we told you it also features Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci and Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly? Still not into it? How about we throw in Castle and Firefly star and alleged Stana Katic nemesis Nathan friggin’ Fillion?

There’s no doubt that the cast of Night Hunter is the film’s biggest draw, especially considering the movie itself got pretty terrible reviews. Critics lambasted the film’s overloaded plot and cliché script. As a result, it currently only holds a 14% critical rating Rotten Tomatoes. So, how did so much talent get involved in the first place?

It may not come as a surprise that when writer and director of Night Hunter, David Raymond, was asked that very question during an interview with The Hollywood News, his initial response was, “I have no idea.” Raymond went on to say that, at least with Kingsley, he wrote the character with the actor in mind. However, he clarified, “Not that you ever think, ‘I’m gonna land Ben Kingsley in my first movie.'”

But Kingsley came on board, and then so did Cavill, who Raymond said he didn’t want to bother pursuing “because I thought there’s no way he’s going to do this.” Then Raymond pulled in Tucci, who he suggested for the role of Police Commissioner Harper, despite “never thinking we’d land him.” From there, he got Fillion and Kelly involved, even though he was sure “that’s not going to work.”

If Raymond could bring together such a star-studded cast despite all of his own dire predictions, then perhaps Night Hunter is worth a stream on Amazon Prime, bad reviews and all.
