Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich and director Paul W. S. Anderson are once again teaming up for a Capcom video game adaptation.
As Variety reports, this time the pair are working on Monster Hunter with producer Jeremy Bolt and a budget of about US$60 million.
The film is scheduled to go into production in September, and it will be shot in and around Cape Town, South Africa.
Anderson wrote the film’s script, and it is hoped it will spawn sequels the way Anderson’s take on Resident Evil has. The six movies in that series have earned US$1.2 billion to date.
“Paul has proven over and over he does stylish movies. It’s one of his big strong points,” said production company Constantin’s Martin Moszkowicz.
“He can make a movie look good, is very much into visuals.”
Monster Hunter: World is Capcom’s best-selling game of all time – give or take – shipping 7.9 million copies since its late January release.
