Pacino turns Nazi hunter in TV series debut for Amazon


    LONDON – In a screen career spanning more than five decades, it has taken Al Pacino until now to act in a television series.

    He is starring in “Hunters,” a new show for Amazon Prime that is due to be released on Friday.

    The series, about a band of Nazi hunters in New York in the 1970s, is inspired by a true story – a “love letter” to the show creator’s late grandmother who survived Holocaust.

    “I never did this sort of long 10 episodes. So it’s like doing like, I think, about a 12-hour film because it is about 12 hours of film,” Pacino, who turns 80 in April, told Reuters.

    “This is a crazy story, too, by the way … Crazy horror, really scary stuff. And also heavy, deep, tragic emotion … it runs the gamut,” said Pacino. – Reuters
