Monster Hunter Live-Action Film Casts T.I. and Ron Perlman

T.I. will play a sniper named Link.

Hip-hop star T.I. Harris and Ron Perlman will be joining Milla Jovovich in Paul W.S. Anderson's film adaptation of Capcom's Monster Hunter.

Anderson previously directed Jovovich in his popular, though not particularly faithful, Resident Evil movies. And he's working with Capcom again to bring to life another one of their popular franchises, Monster Hunter.

Hollywood Reporter reports that Harris will be playing a sniper named Link and Perlman will play a character named Admiral, who leads a group of Hunters. Jovovich is playing an original character named Artemis who is also a hunter. Production on Monster Hunter was delayed a month and pushed back from September to October.

Knowing Anderson's work on Resident Evil, Monster Hunter probably won't follow any conventional plot from the video games but will likely include familiar monsters and callbacks.
