PROJECT DETAILS
  • Filming is aimed to begin sometime this September in and around Cape Town, South Africa. (5/12/18)
  • On his approach towards the film, Paul W. S. Anderson was quoted saying: "There are no real central characters [in the game] so it’s a bit like when we first approached Resident Evil and imposed our own characters and story on that world. 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."
  • On director Paul W. S. Anderson one of the producer's was quoted saying: “Paul has proven over and over he does stylish movies. It’s one of his big strong points. He can make a movie look good, is very much into visuals."
  • The studio is aiming for this to be their next big franchise, similar to what they did with the Resident Evil movies.
  • The effects for the film will once again be handled by Toronto’s Technicolor-owned Mr. X, who also worked on the Resident Evil franchise.
  • Apparently the studio is teaming up with a "big company" in Japan and China to develop this.
  • Budgeted at an estimated $60-million.
  • This movie reteams writer/director Paul W. S. Anderson, studio Constantin Film, and Milla Jovovich.
  • Based on the hit Capcom game with the same name.
