What's the next potentially disappointing adaptation? Monster Hunter, apparently. Speaking at Tokyo Game Show, Capcom's Ryozo Tsujimoto revealed that a live-action adaptation is currently under development.
The announcement was almost an afterthought to a new trailer for Capcom's Monster Hunter Stories, though Tsujimoto was careful to note that the two projects were unrelated. "While it isn't related to Stories," he said, "there is a Hollywood movie adaptation of the main series in progress." It's not the first time we've heard about such a project, either -- in 2012, Resident Evil director Paul W.S.
Anderson showed interest in making a Monster Hunter film. There's no indication that Anderson is involved in the current film, however, and Tsujimoto didn't offer any details on director, release date or cast. Still, one more major video game franchise is heading to the silver screen.
So, are you excited seeing these Monsters in the Silver screen?
