Now Playing: New Monster Hunter Movie Gets More Plot And Casting Details - GameSpot Universe News Update

The Monster Hunter movie is steadily moving along, as producers Constantin Film and Impact Pictures--the team behind the Resident Evil movie franchise--locked down a 2020 release date earlier this year. Lead actress Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil series, Hellboy) spoke about the upcoming fantasy action flick at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

In a brief interview, Variety asked Jovovich what fans should look forward to next. Jovovich immediately quipped back with "Oh, Monster Hunter 2020!" She then described the movie as "incredible" before giving some quick context. She says that training for the movie is hard but it makes her "mentally more able to deal with the overwhelming experiences that we all go through in our lives." You can check out her thoughts on the movie below.

The Monster Hunter movie stars Tony Jaa (Furious 7, XXX: Return of Xander Cage), Clifford "T.I." Joseph Harris Jr. (Ant-Man, Entourage), Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Pacific Rim), Diego Boneta (Before I Fall, Rock of Ages), Meagan Good (Don Jon, Shazam!), Josh Helman (Jack Reacher, X-Men: Days of Future Past), and Jin "MC Jin" Au-Yeung (2 Fast 2 Furious, The Man with the Iron Fists).

We got some details about the movie's plot last year. Jovovich plays Artemis, the leader of a United Nations military team who gets sucked into a different universe featuring monsters. Jovovich's character will team up with the Hunter, played by Tony Jaa, and the two must work together to close an open portal to prevent the monsters from invading Earth. In a statement to Variety, Capcom said, "Along the way, viewers will make new discoveries and encounter familiar faces and beloved characters from the games like the Admiral" (played by Ron Perlman).

Monster Hunter is set to release on September 4, 2020.
