The Monster Hunter movie is about a year off, but the project has added another name to its production. Along with some big name actors in Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil series, Hellboy) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Pacific Rim), German producer Martin Moszkowicz (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Tarzan 3D) announced that Chinese distributor and producer Tencent Pictures is now attached.
Moszkowicz delivered the news via an Instagram post, writing, "Tencent announces [a] partnership with Constantin Film and Toho on [the] Monster Hunter movie for 2020." He followed the news up with another post, saying, "Constantin Film is proud to partner with Tencent and Toho [in] bringing [the] Monster Hunter movie to the screens of the world." Moszkowicz serves as the chairman on Constantin Film's executive board.
Tencent will serve as an additional producer alongside Moszkowicz's own Constantin Film and indie film production company Impact Pictures. The Chinese producer has been busy in the film world, making a big splash in 2016 with Warcraft. Tencent also helped with Bumblebee, Kong: Skull Island, Wonder Woman, and Venom. Most recently, the Chinese distributor was attached to Men in Black: International. Immediately following this, Tencent will lend a hand with Terminator: Dark Fate, which is set to debut on November 1.
The Monster Hunter movie stars Clifford "T.I." Joseph Harris Jr. (Ant-Man, Entourage), Diego Boneta (Before I Fall, Rock of Ages), Jin "MC Jin" Au-Yeung (2 Fast 2 Furious, The Man with the Iron Fists), Josh Helman (Jack Reacher, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Meagan Good (Don Jon, Shazam!), and Tony Jaa (Furious 7, XXX: Return of Xander Cage).
Monster Hunter is scheduled to debut in theatres on September 4, 2020.
