Sony has now revealed the very first set photo from the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Sega’s Monster Hunter games. It features Resident Evil actress Mila Jovovich as Lt. Artemis alongside Thai action star Tony Jaa. However, Monster Hunter players might recognise Jaa’s costume…
In the film, Jaa is playing a character known as “The Hunter”. And as it seems, Jaa’s character is from the actual world of the Monster Hunter video games. Screen Gems has recently released new story details about the film as well:
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back.
Filming is ongoing in South Africa, with a movie budget of US$60 million. It will also star Ron Perlman, Diego Boneta. and T.I. Harris.
