Milla Jovovich is set to star in an upcoming adaptation of the "Monster Hunter" video game franchise. The film will be directed by Jovovich's husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, who also directed four of the six "Resident Evil" films.

The adaptation is being developed by Constantin Film with a budget rumored at around $60 million and production is set to begin in September in Cape Town, South Africa, where "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" was also shot. The special effects will be handled by Mr. X, a company that worked on the "Resident Evil" movies.

The project was first announced by Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt in 2016. The concept was described at the time as follows:
"An ordinary man in a dead end job discovers that he is actually the descendant of an ancient hero. He must travel to a mystical world to train to become a Monster Hunter, before the mythical creatures from that world destroy ours.

The central characters are very relatable American characters. You take a person from the ordinary world who thinks they’re in a dead-end job, they have no future, they feel like their life’s a failure, it’s going nowhere, like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. It’s about a normal American who gets dragged into this parallel world, this Monster Hunter world. Then eventually the parallel world ends up coming to our world. So you have the creatures from the Monster Hunter world invading our world."

The latest installment in the video game franchise, titled Monster Hunter: World, was released this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
