Universal Pictures on Saturday canceled the release of "The Hunt", a satirical thriller about a group of Americans who are captured to be hunted and killed for sport, following apparent criticism by President Donald Trump and a recent series of mass shootings.

The studio said in a statement Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019, that it had chose to cancel the film's release altogether, saying "we understand that now is not the time" for the film.

In a statement Saturday, Universal said it had chose to take the further step of canceling the film's September 27 release, saying "We understand that now is not the right time to release this film". Hollywood, I don't call them the elites.

Trump criticised the planned movie on Twitter Friday, without mentioning its name, saying it was intended "to inflame and cause chaos".

The president also had harsh words for Hollywood in the tweet, saying "Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level". "In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite", he wrote on Twitter on August 9.

Universal has scrapped plans to release "The Hunt", a horror-thriller in which elites stalk rural "deplorables" for sport. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others.

So between that, and the aforementioned shootings, it's clear why the studio may be getting cold feet with the film and though it's unclear if we'll ever get to see it now, we can only hope that they choose to re-visit the project once things have calmed down a bit. "They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!" the president tweeted.

Craig Zobel directed "The Hunt", based on a script by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse.

"The Hunt", an R-rated film produced by Jason Blum's Blumhouse, is about twelve strangers waking up in a clearing, not yet aware they are the target of a violent and bloody hunt that involves guns and blades.

Revolving around a group of elite vacationers who are out to hunt blue-collar whites called "deplorables" for sport, The Hunt was criticised by conservative outlets in the United States for alleged attacks against white people.
