A Monster Hunter movie makes as much sense as the last five Resident Evil movies

, | News

The Monster Hunter movie begins filming in September. Variety reports that Paul W.S. Anderson will direct and Milla Jovovich will star as the titular hunter of monsters. The production budget is estimated to be about $60 million through Constantin Films, which is no doubt pleased with Anderson’s proven ability to wring money from a tired, effects-heavy franchise. There’s no word on the plot yet, but since it’s based on the bombastic fantasy series from Capcom, you can likely expect 40% of it to be costume changes, 30% gathering materials, and the rest of the movie consisting of killing the same couple of monsters again and again to get the right drops.
