Paul W.S. Anderson's MONSTER HUNTER Adaptation Gets An Official Release Date

Sony Pictures has officially announced that the Paul W.S. Anderson-helmed Monster Hunter adaptation will be released in 2020 as the only confirmed film set to launch during next year's Labor Day so far...

Screen Gems' Monster Hunter gets an official release date of September 4, 2020, Deadline reported today. Paul W.S. Anderson's take on the Capcom video game series has been in development since 2012, but principal photography on the film began just three months ago in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Monster Hunter adaptation will focus on two protagonists who come from different worlds and must cooperate in fighting monsters in order to survive. This adventure film is being helmed by Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Event Horizon), who also produces the upcoming picture alongside his long-time Resident Evil Collaborators: Robert Kulzer, Martin Moszkowicz, Jeremy Bolt and Dennis Berard.

The full Monster Hunter cast includes Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil, The Fifth Element), Meagan Good (Calinfornication, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), Diego Boneta (Rock of Ages, Terminator), "T.I." Harris (Entourage, Ant-Man and The Wasp), Josh Helman (Jack Reacher, X-Men: Apocalypse), Jin Au-Yeung (2 Fast 2 Furious, Coco), and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them).

Considering that Labor Day weekends are usually packed with new movie releases, it's pretty surprising that Monster Hunter is currently the only feature film set to launch during that holiday next year.

The latest entry in Capcom’s Monster Hunter video game series, titled Monster Hunter: World, has sold over 11 million copies worldwide since its critically acclaimed launch on January 26, 2018.

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.
