Production begins on live-action Monster Hunter movie

Capcom confirmed this Thursday that production has begun on a live-action film adaptation of Monster Hunter.

The Japanese publisher is once again partnering with Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson to write, direct and produce the film.

Together again

Milla Jovovich - also of Resident Evil fame - will star in Monster Hunter, while actor Diego Boneta confirmed his role alongside Jovovich on Instagram earlier this week.

Principal photography for the film begins this month in South Africa and Namibia.

The story will centre on “two heroes who come from different worlds to defeat a shared danger, the powerful, deadly and magnificent monsters that inhabit the land,” according to a Capcom statement.
