The film was formally announced by Capcom in October 2018. There is not much info about the movie but we know that it will be about hunters travelling to an alternate dimension full of monsters. The star of the Monster Hunter is Milla Jovovich who also starred in Resident Evil. Jovovich will play Natalie Artimis as the leader of a group of soldiers. Also, Tony Jaa will play in the movie as The Hunter. Jovovich's team and The Hunter will group up and hunt monsters together.
