15 May – After starring in six "Resident Evil" movies, Milla Jovovich is set to join another video game property in a leading role.
The Ukrainian born actress will lead a "Monster Hunter" adaptation based on a video game franchise of the same name, reports Variety.
Jovovich's frequent collaborator who happens to be her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, will direct the USD 60 million-budget movie which will begin production this September at Cape Town, South Africa.
"The crews are great there and, at least for a European company, it's easy to get there: Same time zone, overnight flights. We are very much in a comfort zone of production," said Chairman of Constantin Film Martin Moszkowicz.
The "Monster Hunter" video game originally launched in 2004 for the PlayStation 2 and has since spawned four more sequels including their latest, "Monster Hunter: World" which has garnered rave reviews, is developer Capcom's fastest-selling game.
While waiting for Jovovich to hunt monsters, fans of the action heroine can catch her in this year's action adventure ,"Future World", starring alongside James Franco and Lucy Liu.
