Capcom announced a Monster Hunter live action film is being adapted by Constantin Film.
Written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil), tentatively titled MONSTER HUNTER will tell the story of “two heroes who come from different worlds” to fight dangerous monsters. Familiar faces like the Admiral will be making appearances in the film.
Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto commented about the live action film project.
After living and breathing in the universe of Monster Hunter for 14 years we are thrilled with enormous anticipation to see our creations adapted for a theatrical release. Monster Hunter’s fan base has exploded over the past year with the runaway success of the game Monster Hunter: World™. It is our hope long-time fans and new alike will join us on this exciting exploration of the Monster Hunter universe.
Filming will take place in South Africa and Namibia in October.
Toho Film will handle distributions in Japan, Tencent Pictures in China, and Constantin Film in German-speaking territories. In the US, the film will be release by Sony’s Screen Gems. International distribution for the Monster Hunter live action film will be handled by Sony Pictures.
This is the second live action film Capcom announced in two days. Yesterday, a Mega Man live action film was announced.
