A great deal of mystery still surrounds Capcom and Constantin Film’s upcoming film adaptation of Monster Hunter, but curious fans can now get a brief look at the look of the film.
As shared by Diego Boneta, it appears filming for Monster Hunter has been underway in South Africa, as the actor showed off an on-set photo. In the image, which you can check out on the actor’s official Instagram, Boneta is in full gunner gear as Sergeant Marshall, looking ready for a fight.
While the mountainous canyons do seem to match the worlds seen in the Monster Hunter series, Marshall’s modern uniform seems a little out of place. However, according to the synopsis of the film, it appears that the more recognizable and fantastical world gamers know will be incorporated. The story will follow “two heroes who come from different worlds to defeat a shared danger, the powerful, deadly, and magnificent monsters that inhabit the land.”
While the cast still hasn’t been completely revealed, Boneta and Resident Evil mainstay Milla Jovovich will begin in the real world, only to be transported to the fantastical world filled with powerful creatures. Other well-known characters from the franchise, such as Admiral, have also been announced, so fans shouldn’t get too worried that this first image doesn’t look exactly like Monster Hunter.
What fans can trust is that the movie will be a blockbuster experience. Constantin Film has provided a $60 million budget for the adaptation, with Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson in helming the picture.
