Logan Lerman is reportedly in talks to star in Jordan Peele's Amazon Nazi-hunting series "The Hunt."

The series is set in the late '70s: Lerman would star as Jonah Heidelbaum, who joins The Hunters, a covert group tracking down Nazis who now live in America under assumed identities -- and who are plotting to build a Fourth Reich in the U.S.

That's a terrific premise and, after seeing Lerman in "Fury," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and "Indignation," we know he's more than up for the job.

The series is from David Weil, who'll serve as showrunner with Nikki Toscano ("24: Legacy," "Bates Motel" and ABC’s "Revenge").

Per Collider, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is expected to direct the first episode, which is slated to start production this February in New York. His films include the indie "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" and the remake of "The Town That Dreaded Sundown."

Lerman's other upcoming projects: "Shirley," a film about "The Haunting of Hill House" author Shirley Jackson starring Elisabeth Moss; and the father-son drama "End of Sentence" with John Hawkes.

And, of course, the ever-busy Peele is prepping his "Twilight Zone" series and "Us," his follow-up to "Get Out."
