Variety is reporting today that the Monster Hunter film will begin production this September. The film will star Milla Jovovich, and is directed by Paul W. S. Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt. The film will be shot in South Africa, in and around Cape Town.
“Monster Hunter” is based, like “Resident Evil,” on a Capcom property. On Wednesday the Japanese developer and game publisher announced that “Monster Hunter: World” is its best-selling game of all time, shipping 7.9 million copies since its late January release.
“Monster Hunter” is envisioned as a film series: “We are in the business of brand creation,” Moszkowicz said.
