CAPCOM GOES TO THE MOVIES
Capcom recently revealed that two big franchises are heading to the silver screen. First up is a live-action Monster Hunter movie, which has already started filming in South Africa and Namibia. Directorial duties have been handed to Paul WS Anderson, and Milla Jovovich, Ron Perlman and Tip Harris are also involved, with Perlman playing the leader of the monster hunter crew.
Capcom has also confirmed a Mega Man live-action movie, which has been rumoured since 2015. Unlike Monster Hunter, very little is known about it, although we do know that the Catfish team of Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are sharing writing and directorial duties. It’s also been revealed that Heroes’ Masi Oka and Chernin Entertainment (of Planet Of The Apes fame) will be coproducing the movie.
