While the much-anticipated film adaptation of the video game Monster Hunter is continuing principal photography in both South Africa and Namibia, one of its stars is using social media to get us all hyped up. Tony Jaa, who portrays “The Hunter”, today released the first look at the both he and co-star Milla Jovovich in action via his official Twitter account. The tweet and picture from the set can be seen below.
Monster Hunter, a joint venture between Constantin Film, Impact Pictures and Sony’s Screen Gems, began shooting back in October with lofty expectations. Besides Jovovich, several others involved in the successful Resident Evil franchise are also involved in the project and similar box office totals are already expected. Jaa’s reveal of the in-action pair will drum up plenty of expectation, while fans patiently wait for the finished product. Jaa and Jovovich lead the impressive cast, which also includes Ron Perlman (Hell Boy), rapper Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris and Meagan Good (Saw V) among others. The film will be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Mortal Kombat), who also assumed the screenwriting duties.
