Aaron Taylor-Johnson is set to star in the upcoming Kraven the Hunter movie based on the Marvel comics. Unlike other Marvel projects, however, the upcoming film was shot entirely on location, something that Taylor-Johnson says will only help the film.
“The collar being shot right on the spot will make all the difference,” Taylor-Johnson said in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s going to add something really beautiful to our personal history. It also sets.” The collar except for that Marvel stage look. It is important for this character to be in the real world. It is important for the authenticity of the story. When you run barefoot in the street, you take these elements in and play within it.”
While not too much is still known about the upcoming film, production on the project has wrapped, with Taylor-Johnson declaring earlier in June that he had finished filming. Footage of the film has yet to make its way online, and the only footage shown so far is a small piece of footage that Sony debuted at CinemaCon in April 2022.
Fred Hechinger joins Taylor-Johnson (Fear Street Trilogy, The white lotus) as Chameleon, Kraven’s half-brother; Oscar nominee Ariana DeBose (West Side Story) as Calypso, occasional partner and lover of Kraven; and Russell Crowe in an undisclosed role.
Kraven the Hunter will be directed by Oscar nominee JC Chandor (A most violent year) from a script co-written by Richard Wenk (The Equalizer film), Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are attached to produce the project.
The film is scheduled to release on January 13, 2023.
