Milla Jovovich's MONSTER HUNTER Gets a 2020 Release Date
Sony Pictures has confirmed that director Paul W.S. Anderson’s feature film adaptation of the popular Capcom video game Monster Hunter will be released on September 4, 2020.
The movie stars Milla Jovovich in the role of Natalie Artemis, an original character that was created for the movie. She has “a pair of unidentified Dual Blades on her back, a carving knife on her thigh, and a Slinger on her left arm.” It also stars Tony Jaa as a badass hunter who wields “a Giant Jawblade, a type of Great Sword, as well as a Great Hunter’s Bow. As you can tell from his costume, Hunter's look is obviously patterned after the Field Team Leader from Monster Hunter World.”
This movie could end up being awesome and I hope that it delivers something extremely cool. Here’s the official story description:
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back.
The film is currently shooting in South Africa, and it also stars Ron Perlman and Diego Boneta. Are you excited about this movie? Do you think Anderson will deliver a kickass action-adventure fantasy film?
