Monster Hunter


 

Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise is headed to the big screen, backed by a well-known video game adaptation team.

According to Variety, Constantin Film’s Monster Hunter will star Milla Jovovich, lead actress of all six of the Resident Evil live-action films. Helming the picture will be Paul W.S. Anderson, writer of each of the Resident Evil movies and director of four of the entries. Constantin Film’s Jeremy Bolt will also produce.

Production of the adaptation will begin this September with a budget of $60 million. Principal shooting will take place in South Africa, which is where Anderson and Jovovich’s last entry in the Resident Evil series—Resident Evil: The Final Chapter—was filmed. 

Additional details were not specified, including the plot or what Jovovich’s role will be, but Constantin Film’s chairman, Martin Moszkowicz, confirmed the team envisions the adaptation to be the first of a long-running film series. “We are in the business of brand creation,” he said.

The choice to adapt Monster Hunter to a full-length film comes at an excellent time for Capcom. The company revealed in March that the latest entry in the action role-playing series, Monster Hunter: World, is their best-selling game of all time, with currently over 7.5 million copies shipped.

Monster Hunter will mark the second Capcom franchise Constantin Film has adapted for theatrical release. While Jovovich and Anderson’s involvement in the Resident Evil series is done, for now, Moszkowicz recently revealed the distribution company is actively working on a reboot of the zombie series.
