While the Resident Evil franchise remains finished, actress Milla Jovovich and her husband Paul W.S. Anderson have begun working on a new video game adaptation of Capcom’s long-running Monster Hunter series, reports Variety.

For every Monster, there is a Hero. 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.

Like Resident Evil: the Final Chapter, which grossed $312 million worldwide, Monster Hunter will shoot in South Africa, in and around Cape Town.

Special effects will be supplied by Toronto’s Technicolor-owned Mr. X, which worked on the Resident Evil franchise. Mr. X’s CEO Dennis Berardi will take a producer credit on the movie, which Moszkowicz said will be a highly stylish big screen adaptation of the video game.

Monster Hunter is envisioned as a film series: “We are in the business of brand creation,” Moszkowicz said.
