I’m very curious to find out more about the new Quibi platform as some really cool projects are coming out on it and one such series is Most Dangerous Game which features Liam Hemsworth and Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz. Hemsworth stars in the ambitious project as a terminally ill man thrust into a deadly game where he is the hunted.
The plot of humans being hunted for sport has been done many times and is one of the oldest plot devices in the genreso I am eager to see how this one looks and feels. The upcoming series debuted some new character posters today which feature our two stars and you can view them below!
Official Synopsis per Deadline: The series, from Scorpion creator Nick Santora, Gordon Gray, Silver Reel Pictures and CBS Television Studios, explores the limits of how far someone would go to fight for their life and their family. Desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life, Dodge Maynard (Hemsworth) accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he soon discovers that he’s not the hunter… but the prey.
Quibi is an upcoming short form video platform that will be accesible on one’s smart phone so it’ll be interesting to see how this series and others will look. Other cast members include Sarah Gadon, Zach Cherry, Aaron Poole, Christopher Webster, Billy Burke and Natasha Bordizzo with CBS TV Studios producing.
Here’s more info in the Quibi platform courtesy of the official site: “Got a few minutes? That’s all you need to be entertained, informed and inspired. Launching this April, Quibi will present fresh content from today’s top talent—one quick bite at a time. Get ready to make any moment extraordinary with incredible storytelling delivered right to your phone. From daily essentials to breakout shows, the next chapter will always be waiting.“
Hopefully we will get some footage soon for this one and others. Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to drop.
