Milla Jovovich Posts 'Monster Hunter' Movie Update

In case you didn't know, there is a film based on the Monster Hunter video game property coming, and Milla Jovovoich is one of the stars. It's part of the reason she didn't attend New York ComicCon earlier this month with her Hellboy co-stars, as she was filming Monster Hunter in South Africa.

The actress posted a small behind-the-scenes peek on her personal Instagram, with the hashtag #setlife.

Jovovich will be playing Artemis, T. I. Harris will be playing a sniper named Link, while Ron Perlman will play a man named Admiral, the leader of the Hunter's Crew.

Monster Hunter will be directed by Paul S. Anderson (Jovovoich's husband, and collaborator on the Resident Evil franchise). Screen Gems will release the film in the states, with the studio's Sony Pictures Releasing International handling international distribution.

No release date is known at this time, but we're hoping for an update soon.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
