According to Variety, Constantin Film will be the main distributor, and the budget is around $60 million.
As reported in 2016, Anderson wrote the script, and his producing partner Jeremy Bolt, will produce the Monster Hunter film. Special effects will be supplied by Toronto’s Technicolor-owned Mr. X.
Variety spoke with Constantin Film chairman Martin Moszkowicz at Cannes, who told the outlet the company thinks of Monster Hunter as a series.
“We are in the business of brand creation,” said Moszkowicz.
Anderson had expressed interested in adapting the franchise to the big screen as far back as 2012, with Capcom confirming in 2016 the film had been given the greenlight.
