Sons of Anarchy and Hand of God alum Ron Perlman is about to tackle some monsters. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Perlman will be joining hip-hop artist T.I Harris and Milla Jovovich in the feature film adaption of the Capcom video game Monster Hunter from Screen Gems.
While the specific plot of the film is still unknown, gameplay for Monster Hunter “places the player in the role of an up-and-coming hunter who must accomplish various quests to achieve glory. Armors, weapons, and other items are created from the remains of slain monsters by carving off their horns, scales, and bones, as well as from mining for ores in the field.” Perlman will be playing the leader of the Hunter’s crew named Admiral and Harris will be playing a sniper named Link. Not too much is known about Jovovich’s character except that she will be named Artemis.
The film pairs Jovovich back up with her husband Paul W.S. Anderson, who both wrote and directed the Resident Evil franchise which she starred in. Anderson will once again be taking his video-game to big screen talents to Monster Hunter where he will both write and direct.
Perlman is well-known for a variety of projects, but on television, his portrayal as motorcycle club President Clay Morrow on FX’s Sons of Anarchy is probably his most well-known role. He appeared in nearly 80 episodes from seasons 1-6. He also appeared on Amazon’s Hand of God and is currently starring on Crackle’s series StartUp. On the big screen, Perlman played Hellboy in both the 2004 film and the 2008 sequel. Other films include Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Chuck, and Sergio and Sergei.
