Resident Evil’s Mila Jovovich Will Star In Capcom’s Upcoming Monster Hunter Movie
Movie adaptations of popular video games have been reeling in the big bucks and topping box office charts over the past couple of years. Capcom and Constantin Films’ Resident Evil: The Final Chapter alone grossed more than $300 million worldwide in 2016.
According to Variety, Capcom will be teaming up with Constantin Films again for the movie adaptation of the Monster Hunter series along with Milla Jovovich, director Paul Anderson, and Producer Jeremy Bolt. Production begins this September with a $60 million budget.
Constantin Films is also currently working on a Resident Evil reboot. “For us, the main thing is to get it right creatively so people don’t think it’s more of the same,” said Constantin head honcho Martin Moszkowicz. “That’s what it’s all about these days, a fresh, different approach.”
