Production on action thriller â€œHunter Killerâ€ will move forward after producer Neal Moritz resolved his legal issues with Relativity Studios.
Moritz and his attorneys had been trying to extricate the film from the tangle of Relativity’s ongoing bankruptcy. That devolved into a war of words, with the Moritz team accusing the company and its founder Ryan Kavanaugh of operating a massive â€œshamâ€ and making false statements about their financial health.
The acrimony was forgotten on Thursday. In a statement, Mortiz did an about face, describing the situation as a â€œmisunderstanding.â€ His tone was noticeably different as he went on to add â€œI especially want to thank Ryan Kavanaugh for finding a solution that brings ‘Hunter Killer’ back to life. I’m looking forward to working with him and everyone at Relativity Studios to make a great film, and I am sorry we had a miscommunication.â€
In order to start principal photography in spring or summer of next year, Relativity has brought on Millennium Films and Original Film to partner on the production and distribution of â€œHunter Killer.â€ Gerard Butler stars in the picture which is set on a submarine.
