We’ve gotten the first look at the upcoming Hollywood-made live-action film based on Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise.
The above and below photos were shared by star Milla Jovavich, over on her Instagram. Here’s some more photos:
Originally announced back in 2016, the film is being directed and written by Paul W.S. Anderson, mostly known as the director on the live-action Resident Evil movies which Jovovich also starred in (Paul is also Milla’s husband). Jeremy Bolt (also worked on the Resident Evil movies as producer) is producing.
The last update we had prior to this was that filming was set for South Africa, mostly around Cape Town, with Constantin Film is handling production. A budget is reportedly set at $60 million, with Anderson framing the movie as a standalone movie.
