Alex Pettyfer will be headlining the psychological thriller Hunters In The Dark, with filming set to occur later this year. 

The film is based on the 2015 novel Hunters In The Dark by Lawrence Osborne. Like the novel, the film is set in modern Cambodia and centers around an English school teacher, Robert Grieve, who journeys deep into the country after winning a bag of cash. The thriller will explore identity and atonement as Grieve’s adventure through Cambodia takes increasingly darker turns. 

Pettyfer is set to play Grieve, while Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk), Tzi Ma (Mulan), Ellen Wong (Glow), and Elodi Yung (Daredevil) will also star in the film.
