Capcom announces plans for Monster Hunter movie

Paul W.S. Anderson set to direct upcoming adaptation

Posted on

Capcom has today announced that their video game series, Monster Hunter, is being adapted for the big screen by Constantin Film with Paul W.S. Anderson directing.

“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.

The film tells the story of two heroes who come from different worlds to defeat a shared danger, the powerful 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.

The film is produced by Paul W.S. 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 was written by Paul W.S. Anderson, who also directs the film. Principal Photography will start in October, in South Africa and Namibia.

The Monster Hunter series consists of action role-playing games where players and their friends work together to take down larger-than-life beasts. Since the first Monster Hunter title made its debut 14 years ago in 2004, the cumulative sales of the series has exceeded 49 million units as of August 2018.
