Netflix new comedy follows Buck Ferguson (Josh Brolin), who is famous for hunting whitetail deer, as he plans a special episode of his hunting show around a bonding weekend with his estranged son, Jaden (Montana Jordan). With trusted – but hapless – cameraman and friend Don (Danny McBride) in tow, Buck sets out for what soon becomes an unexpectedly epic adventure of father-son reconnection in the great outdoors.
The film is based on public cable access hunting show characters like Roger Raglin and his hunting DVD’s which happen to be titled ‘The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter.” Josh Brolin packed on 40 pounds for the film to get into character.
The film also stars Scoot McNairy and Carrie Coon, THE LEGACY OF A WHITETAIL DEER HUNTER is directed by Jody Hill (Observe & Report, “Vice Principals,” “Eastbound Down”); written by Jody Hill, Danny McBride & John Carcieri (“Vice Principals,” “Eastbound Down”); and produced by Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Jody Hill.
