ABOUT The Most Dangerous Game


The Most Dangerous Game was shot entirely on the Koenig Pictures backlot in Oregon state, a breathtaking property consisting of 20 acres of lush green forest, creeks and clearings.

The site was chosen for its rugged beauty, typical of the Pacific Northwest route that the hunters’ ship followed as they traveled from the Continental U.S. to the remote islands of the Kodiak Archipelago.

The remote setting evokes the rustic, isolated feel of the island game preserve… where the hunters are trapped with no hope for escape unless they survive The Most Dangerous Game.


"The Most Dangerous Game was a movie that always intrigued me as a filmmaker. I remember watching it when I was a child and specifically how the idea of man hunting man, the ultimate game, was something so dangerously appealing. I may have not understood it then, but my deep connection to this classic not only contributed to my storytelling as a filmmaker, but it would also inspire me as a director to revisit this story and re-tell it, putting a modern twist on it. I have had the opportunity to work on many projects in my career, but this one, in particular, has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable and I’m so honored to be able to share my version of this great film with you now.

"The backdrop of the Pacific Northwest was essential for shooting. The towering forests and the lush vegetation was perfect when it came down to locations. Casting this film properly was also paramount. Getting actors on board like Tom Berenger, Casper Van Dien and Judd Nelson, they added a life not only to their characters but to this film that you just can’t get had it been anyone else in my opinion. Everyday on set directing these great talents was an honor and I’ll always hold this experience dear to my heart."
