Monster Hunter Movie Release Date Pushed to Spring 2021

And now, Milla Jovovich's latest big budget film Monster Hunter has been pushed from this fall to next spring, as reported by Deadline.

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine (via Syfy Wire), director Paul W.S. Anderson revealed new details about Sony Pictures' forthcoming film adaptation of Monster Hunter, teasing the 50-60 ft. tall monsters that action star Milla Jovovich will have to face in the film.

The move comes as several states across the country suffer from rising coronavirus infection rates, and county officials mull over a second shutdown.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Monster Hunter movie has pushed its release date from September 4, 2020 to April 23, 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.

The film adaptation will be led by Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil franchise) and Tony Jaa. Funnily enough, this is the first movie that Anderson has directed since wrapping up the Resident Evil franchise with The Final Chapter back in 2016. That doesn't inspire much faith in Monster Hunter, but Anderson previously described the film as "Lawrence of Arabia but with monsters".

Paul and Milla are also parents to three daughters, including budding actress Ever Gabo, 12, Dashiel Edan, five, and Osian Lark Elliot, who was born a year ago.

As a result, Sony may have just chose to bite the bullet with Monster Hunter, and push it to a safer date.
