The Monster Hunter video game franchise is getting a big screen adaptation. Constantin Film is behind it and it is due to go into production this September in South Africa.

Constantin is joining forces once more with director Paul W. S. Anderson (Resident Evil) for the $60 million budgeted movie. Milla Jovovich is set to star.

The games are primarily action role-playing games. The player takes the role of a Hunter, slaying or trapping large monsters across various landscapes as part of quests given to them by the locals. Players use loot gained from slaying monsters, gathering resources, and quest rewards to craft improved weapons, armor, and other items that allows them to face more powerful monsters. While initially single-player games, more recent titles have up to four-player cooperative play, with all Hunters working together to take down monsters.

Martin Moszkowicz, Chairman of the Executive Board of Constantin Film, said that the film will be a highly stylish big screen adaptation of the video game. “Paul has proven over and over he does stylish movies. It’s one of his big strong points. He can make a movie look good, is very much into visuals,” he added.

Constantin will partner on Monster Hunter with “a big company” in Japan and another in China, both of whom will take equity in the project. These deals are “in the last stages of negotiation,” Moszkowicz added. Beyond that, Constantin will finance Monster Hunter itself.

Monster Hunter is based, like Resident Evil, on a Capcom property. On Wednesday the Japanese developer and game publisher announced that Monster Hunter: World is its best-selling game of all time, shipping 7.9 million copies since its late January release.
