Jonathon Mostow may not be a name immediately recognisable to the average moviegoer. But the Hollywood director has been building an impressive portfolio over the past two decades. After breaking into the industry with the critically acclaimed Breakdown, starring none other than Kurt Russell, he went on to work with some of the biggest stars in the industry.
Mostow successfully steered the Terminator ship after James Cameron left the franchise, and also told a visually impressive story of technological enhancement starring Bruce Willis. Now his latest release, The Hunters Prayer, revolves around a contract killer who decides to protect the very woman he is hired to murder. The film stars Sam Worthington (Avatar) in the lead, and also boasts a talented supporting cast consisting of Odeya Rush (Goosebumps), Allen Leech (Downton Abbey), and Amy Landecker (Transparent).

Over the years Boris Kodjoe has flown under the radar in Hollywood appearing in small and supporting roles in Love & Basketball, Surrogates, and Bet’s Real Husband’s of Hollywood. But that hasn’t stopped him from attracting somewhat of a cult following as a Hollywood heartthrob though. Appearing in the first episode of Bet’s new anthology series “Tales” he has a chance to increase his status in the entertainment industry. However, being that he hasn’t reached the pentacle of being a Hollywood leading man there’s still a lot that even his most adept followers don’t know about him. Let’s uncover a

With sci-fi actioners Surrogates and Terminator 3 already under his belt, director Jonathan Mostow should have no trouble handling a real-world Euro-thriller like The Hunter’s Prayer, yet control of the narrative appears to rapidly slip from his grasp as the movie’s implausibilities mount. What should be a reliably entertaining, if not especially original, replication of well-worn crime-thriller conventions instead turns into an enervating slog. Audiences seeking mindless diversion are more likely to discover The Hunter’s Prayer on VOD than in theaters, where it doesn’t have, well, a prayer of lasting past opening weekend.

david j. moore chats with filmmaker Jonathan Mostow…
Filmmaker Jonathan Mostow has been making some incredibly entertaining films since his early days, directing such made-for TV movies as Flight of Black Eagle, but it was his film Breakdown, starring Kurt Russell and J.T. Walsh that really put him on the map. Following that success, Mostow wrote and directed the World War II drama U-571, the mega budgeted Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and the Bruce Willis science fiction film Surrogates, and now after a break he’s back with the hitman action drama The Hunter’s Prayer, starring Sam Worthington. In this interview, Mostow talks about his career and his latest endeavor as a filmmaker.
I wanted to start this interview off by telling you how big of a fan of Breakdown I am. I saw a sneak preview of that movie and fell head over heels in love with it. »
Coming to cinemas later this year is The Hunter’s Prayer, the new film from Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines and Breakdown director Jonathan Mostow. I’ve been a fan of Mostow since that awesome 1990s Kurt Russell-led thriller (remind yourself here) and can’t wait to see what he’s got in store with this Sam Worthington starrer.
Here’s a bit of insight into the new film via the official synopsis as provided by the U.S. distributors.
This high octane thriller focuses on Lucas, (Sam Worthington), a solitary assassin, hired to kill a young woman, Ella, (Odeya Rush). When he can’t bring himself to pull the trigger the plan falls apart, setting in motion a twisted game of cat and mouse. Now both are marked for death and forced to form an uneasy alliance.
