Deadline reports that actor Garret Dillahunt will begin filming his newest project in Oklahoma this month. The Huntsman is a psychological thriller directed by Kyle Kauwika Harris, known for Out of Exile.

Dillahunt was announced for the film along with Elizabeth Mitchell, Shawn Ashmore, and Jessy Schram. The Huntsman is an adaptation of the novel by Judith Sander from the screenplay by Steven Jon Whritner.

The story follows an ICU nurse (Ashmore) who has volunteered to read to an ICU patient (Dillahunt) who is the main suspect in a string of horrific murders in a small southwest town. The investigation is led by a detective (Schram) who is working diligently to solve the cases before more bodies turn up, while other possible suspects take the case on a spiraling journey. The patient's wife (Mitchell) believes her husband is innocent of the crimes and encounters difficulties with the investigation process.

In a quote for Deadline, director Harris expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating that he is excited to begin filming this "dark and atmospheric story." He also stated that this film will "shake the viewer up."
