Monster Hunter Adaptation Starring Milla Jovovich Coming

Variety reports that Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich is reuniting with director (and husband) Paul W.S. Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt on Constantin Film‘s Monster Hunter, which will begin production this September with an approximate $60 million budget.

Monster Hunter is an adaptation of the video game series that first debuted 10 years ago. The games are largely plotless and task players with simply hunting down monsters and customizing their own heroes. A while back, Anderson revealed the logline for the film, which reads as follows:

“For every Monster, there is a Hero. An ordinary man in a dead end job discovers that he is actually the descendant of an ancient hero. He must travel to a mystical world to train to become a Monster Hunter before the mythical creatures from that world destroy ours.”

He elaborated on how the game’s protagonist-free premise is helpful toward what they’re creating.

“There are no real central characters so it’s a bit like when we first approached Resident Evil and imposed our own characters and story on that world,” Anderson said. “I think this is a perfect IP for us to do exactly that same thing again. The Monster Hunter world includes these huge deserts that make the Gobi Desert look like a sandbox, and they have ships that sail through the sand. These full-on galleons, but rather than sailing on the ocean waves, they sail through waves of sand…You’re fighting these giant creatures, some as big as a city block. They live underneath the Earth and when they burst out, it’s like the best of Dune. You also have these flying dragons, giant spiders, the most wonderful creatures.”

I don't see this going anywhere, but it could still be fun.

I choose to believe TheLastBlade made the star happen. XD

Not feeling content in destroying just one video game franchise's movie future, Paul WS Anderson turns his attentions to another...

What? Is this a premise in any Monster Hunter game? Because in my experience with a PSP one back in the day and World this doesn't seem right.

Sounds like the plot of Mystic Force.

And Assassin's Creed isn't about using wi-fi to access your past lives, but here we are.

Ha ha ha @#$_&! you Anderson, that's the exact opposite of RE where there WAS central characters and a story, even if they rotated around.

I'm not even a RE fan, but I can't imagine how people would've felt if they imposed a new character like Super Mega Duper Ultra Man in the Avengers to make them all look bad. Even people who don't like Coulson can admit as an OC he didn't dominate the MCU. Shoot, he's a bit character 1/2 the time in his own show!

It's like, we get it Andy, you love your wife. These movies are like love letters and foreplay put together, you enjoy doing them together, it's actually kinda totally romantic.

Do it in your own franchise. Make your prologues to your sex tapes at home. Do SOMETHING. Nothing wrong with fetish movies.....if it's your franchise, you're movies. Being based off someone's elses' property, it's never completely yours, as much as it might offend your artists' sensibilities. Get over it.




.....well that rant towards a hack, in a post online in a forum dedicated to a kids's show sure showed him. But seriously, there's at least Justice in that these past RE and future Monster movies will be mocked for generations to come, so there's that.

Hey, do you think their new, inevitable Mary Sue will be called something else, or do you think they'll be gutsy enough to just call her Alice too, and have her act exactly the same way, just basically be the same character?
