The creatures in the upcoming “Monster Hunter” film from Paul W.S. Anderson will re-create several of the most notable foes in the original Capcom video games the movie is based on, Rathalos and Diablos monsters.In a recent video for Sony, the game series’ producer Ryozo Tsujimoto said the show is trying to stay true to the original concept of the monsters in the games while giving them high-definition upgrades.The Rathalos and Diablos, both gargantuan horned dragons, face off against the film’s heroine, Captain Artemis, played by Milla Jovovich. Artemis’ military unit (which includes Cliff ‘T.I’ Harris, Diego Boneta and Tony Jaa) is swept off to an alien world during a sandstorm. Of course, that alien world is chock-full of mythical creatures and flesh-eating dinosaurs that Jovovich’s character must dispose of with gigantic flaming swords.Also Read: 'Monster Hunter' Trailer: Milla Jovovich Fends Off Gigantic Dragons With Fire Swords (Video)Besides some slight coloration changes and straightening out the curved horns on the Diablos monster, both it and the Rathalos look nearly identical to their game counterparts.Kaname Fujioka, the game’s director, said the animations in the movie look “very, very close to the game.”In the trailer, a herd of Apceros (the fictionalized, and deadlier version of an Anklyosaurus) fans out across a lake and prepares to charge. Fujioka told Anderson the team wasn’t able to incorporate a huge group of the beasts into the “Monster Hunter” games, but was delighted to see it on film.Also Read: Matthew A Cherry to Direct King Tut Story as Feature Debut at Sony Pictures Animation“With the pack of Apceros, you guys were able to do something he wasn’t able to do in the game development, so he was really happy to see that,” Fujioka said, speaking for Tsujimoto as well. “And you incorporated so many things we discussed, so we are really thankful, really impressed.”The original “Monster Hunter” game was released by Capcom in 2004 for the PS2. The most recent game, “Monster Hunter: World” came out in 2018 and became Capcom’s best-selling game of all time, with over 16 million units sold by this June. Over 70% of those sales came from outside of Japan, Capcom said.Two new installments in the series — “Monster Hunter Rise” and “Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin” will come out next year for the Nintendo Switch.This project is Anderson and Jovovich’s latest video game to film adaptation — they also worked together on the live action “Resident Evil” films. “Monster Hunter” will hit theaters Dec. 30.Check out the full video interview with the original “Monster Hunter” creators below.Read original story Upcoming ‘Monster Hunter’ Film Re-Creates Fan Favorite Creatures From Original Game At TheWrap
After making two “Wonder Woman” films together at Warner Bros., Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins will head to Paramount to make the historical epic “Cleopatra” after the studio won an intense bidding war for the actor/director duo’s upcoming project.The acquisition is the first major one for Paramount since Emma Watts joined the studio as Motion Picture Group President. Watts, who left 20th Century Fox shortly after its acquisition by Disney, joined Paramount this past June. While Paramount has found dependable success with the “Mission: Impossible” series and solid profits from titles like “A Quiet Place” and “Sonic the Hedgehog,” the studio has been searching for more major blockbuster projects as the once-reliable “Transformers” franchise has faltered at the box office in recent years.Also Read: Here Are All the Studio Movies Still Scheduled to Open in Theaters in 2020 (For Now)In addition to respectively acting and directing on the project, Gadot and Jenkins will both produce alongside Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Pilot Waves, Jason Varsano, who is Gadot’s producing partner. Laeta Kalogridis, whose credits include “Alexander,” “Shutter Island” and “Alita: Battle Angel,” will write the script and serve as executive producer.Alongside her father, brothers and sons, Cleopatra ruled for 21 years and was the last major ruler of Egypt before it became a province of the Roman Empire. Despite technically sharing the title of regent with others in her family, she was known as dominant ruler of Egypt at the time and became known both in history and popular culture for her romantic and political relationships with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.Also Read: Patty Jenkins on How 'Wonder Woman 84' Uses the '80s as 'Great Metaphor'Hollywood has tackled Cleopatra’s life several times in the past, but perhaps the most famous is the 1963 sword and sandals epic starring Elizabeth Taylor as the queen with Richard Burton as Mark Antony. The film provided plenty of fodder for the gossip columns as Taylor and Burton had an affair while portraying Cleopatra and Antony’s romance onscreen. Despite being the highest-grossing film that year and winning four Oscars from nine nominations, “Cleopatra” was initially a flop as numerous shooting scandals, including director and cast changes, led to the film becoming the most expensive production in Hollywood history at the time.Jenkins and Gadot’s rise over the past three years has been far less scandalous. “Wonder Woman,” which grossed $812.5 million at the global box office in 2017, holds the record for the highest grossing film directed by a woman. The sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984,” was expected to be one of multiple blockbusters directed by women in 2020 to have an opportunity to crack the $1 billion box office mark; but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced it to be repeatedly delayed. “WW84” is now set for release on Christmas Day, though another delay to 2021 is still possible.Gadot is repped by WME. Jenkins is repped by CAA.Read original story Gal Gadot, Patty Jenkins Reteam for ‘Cleopatra’ at Paramount After Intense Auction At TheWrap

Netflix and the creators of “Stranger Things,” Matt and Ross Duffer, are being sued by a company that says the idea for the hit show was stolen from a screenplay called “Totem.”According to the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday in California federal court, Irish Rover Entertainment says that “Stranger Things” copies a lot from “Totem,” a screenplay written by Jeffrey Kennedy, including “plot, sequence, characters, theme, dialogue, mood, and setting, as well as copyrighted concept art.”The lawsuit says the two projects are connected by a man named Aaron Sims, who worked closely with Kennedy during its development. Sims, the lawsuit says, was hired to create the concept art for the first two seasons of “Stranger Things.”Also Read: 'Watchmen,' 'Fleabag,' 'Succession' and 'Stranger Things' Win 2020 Peabody AwardsKennedy says he got the idea for “Totem” after the death of a childhood friend, Clint Osthimer, who suffered from epilepsy. “During their childhood together in rural Indiana,” the lawsuit reads, “Osthimer and Kennedy dealt with the constant threat of Osthimer’s ‘personal demon,’ epilepsy, which created ‘lightning showers’ in his brain. These lightning showers or seizures would send him to an alternate supernatural plane where the demon resided.”The lawsuit tries to paint many similarities between “Totem” and “Stranger Things.” In one example, the lawsuit says:In “Totem,” one of the characters is a little girl named Kimimela or “Kimi” for short who has supernatural powers. Kimimela helps her friends find the portal gate to an alternate supernatural plane and helps them battle the plane’s inhabitants; a dark spirit named Azrael and his army of Blackwolf.Also Read: 'Stranger Things 4': Hopper's Alive, He's Just Not Doing So Great (Video)By comparison, the lawsuit describes “Stranger Things” by saying:In “Stranger Things,” one of the characters is a little girl name Eleven or “El” for short who has supernatural powers. Eleven helps her friends find the portal gate to an alternate supernatural plane and helps them battle the plane’s inhabitants; a Shadow Monster and his army of Demogorgon.Irish Rover Entertainment is suing for copyright infringement and seeking unspecified damages. A representative for Netflix told TheWrap, “Mr. Kennedy has been peddling these far-fetched conspiracy theories for years, even though Netflix has repeatedly explained to him that The Duffer Brothers had never heard of him or his unpublished script until he began threatening to sue them. After we refused to give in to his demands for a payoff, he filed this baseless lawsuit. There is no shortage of people who would like to claim credit for creating ‘Stranger Things.’ But the truth is the show was independently conceived by The Duffer Brothers, and is the result of their creativity and hard work.”Also Read: 'Stranger Things 3' Sets Viewership Record for Netflix - Says NetflixA similar lawsuit was filed in 2018 by a man named Charles Kessler, who alleged that the idea for “Stranger Things” came from him.
