With Sony Pictures having recently amassed the core cast for their upcoming Monster Hunter adaptation, the film has now been given a set release date.
In a press release, Sony has booked in the Paul W.S. Anderson-helmed Monster Hunter for a September 4th, 2020 release. If you remember back, Anderson’s wife and Resident Evil headliner Milla Jovovich is leading the charge in Monster Hunter.
Jovovich heads up a cast that also features Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, T.I. Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta and Josh Helman, with the Monster Hunter video game franchise itself having begun back in 2004. To date, the franchise itself has sold nearly 50 million units over the multiple games released over the years.
In the film, Jovovich will be heading up a military team who end up in a realm overflowing with all kinds of creatures and monsters. There, the group have to work alongside Tony Jaa’s Hunter to close up a portal and stop these beasties from making in to Earth.
