    EXCLUSIVE: The last two years saw the quiet development of Monster Hunter from the Resident Evil franchise duo Paul W.S. Anderson and producing partner Jeremy Bolt. The adaptation of the hit 2004 video game IP is now finally taking shape with word that actor and martial artist Tony Jaa will play The Hunter, joining the casting line-up announced earlier this evening at The Hollywood Reporter.

    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.

    As The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit noted on Tuesday evening, actor and recording artist T.I. Harris is joining the cast as Link with famed Hellboy persona Ron Perlman playing Admiral, leader of the Hunters’ crew. The film will also reteam Anderson and Bolt with Resident Evil franchise actress Milla Jovovich who, as of May, will lead the cast as Artemis, and with production kicking off in South Africa next month.

    Anderson and Bolt are joined by Robert Kulzer in producing the film for Screen Gems ahead of its U.S. release. Sony Pictures Releasing International will take the film to other territories.

    The Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong franchise star’s career took off with great international ceremony beginning in 2015 appearing in films such as Skin Trade and Furious Seven. His progress continued with Soi Cheang’s S.P.L. 2: A Time For Consequence, and in 2017 with Vin Diesel for an ensemble outing in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage.

    Jaa will next be seen in Yuen Woo-Ping’s long-awaited Ip Man spin-off, Master Z: Ip Man Legacy, opposite starring actor Max Zhang with Michelle Yeoh and Dave Bautista also starring.

    Capcom Thursday confirmed that Paul W.S. Anderson will be directing a movie adaptation of “Monster Hunter” and released updated details about the film’s plot.

    The film tells the story of “two heroes who come from different worlds to defeat a shared danger, the powerful, deadly and magnificent monsters that inhabit the land. Along the way, viewers will make new discoveries and encounter familiar faces and beloved characters from the games like the Admiral,” according to Capcom.

    “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,” said Monster Hunter Series Producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto “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.”

    Earlier this week, Mexican actor Diego Boneta announced that he is joining Milla Jovovich in the big screen adaptation of the movie.

    “Monster Hunter” is set to be produced by Anderson and Jeremy Bolt from Impact Pictures, and by Robert Kulzer and Martin Moszkowicz from Constantin Film. Dennis Berardi, Head of VFX for the film, also acts as producer. The screenplay to “Monster Hunter” was written by Anderson, who also directs the film. Principal photography will start in October, in South Africa and Namibia. Constantin Film will release the movie in German-speaking territories, Tencent Pictures in China and Toho Film in Japan. Sony’s Screen Gems will release the film in the U.S. with the studio’s Sony Pictures Releasing International handling the rest of the world.

    The Monster Hunter series is made up of action role-playing games where players work together to take down larger-than-life beasts in a living, breathing ecosystem. Since the first Monster Hunter title made its debut 14 years ago in 2004, the series has attracted a dedicated fan base, and grown into a global mega-hit with “Monster Hunter: World,” the latest title in the series, shipping 10 million units worldwide, with cumulative sales of the series exceeding 49 million units as of Aug. 20.
