Will star as Pandoran archaeologist Tannis.
Gearbox’s Borderlands motion picture continues to hoover up an unlikely lineup of Hollywood skill, this time with the news that Jamie Lee Curtis has actually formally signed on to star in an essential function.
A movie adjustment of Gearbox’s popular post-apocalyptic funny shooter was very first drifted all the method back in 2015, however it wasn’t up until in 2015 that the cogs began kipping down earnest – with the surprise statement that Hostel director Eli Roth would be at the helm.
More unforeseen still was the news, showing up last May, that Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (who starred in Roth’s 2018 adjustment of The House with a Clock in its Walls) would be taking a leading function in the Borderlands motion picture as Lilith, referred to as a “siren and famous burglar geared up with wonderful abilities”.
Blanchett’s casting was rapidly followed by verification that Jumanji star Kevin Hart had actually signed up with the Borderlands cast as soldier Roland, and now Gearbox has word that Jamie Lee Curtis – whose remarkable profession has actually seen significant turns in whatever from Halloween to well-known 2019 secret Knives Out – will star as Pandoran archaeologist Tannis.
The Hollywood Reporter shares a little more on how Curtis’ character will suit the motion picture variation of Borderlands’ world, discussing she “may have the secret to discovering the vault, however [her] complex history with Lilith isn’t going to assist.”
Roth will be directing the Borderlands motion picture from a script by Craig Mazin (developer of TELEVISION series Chernobyl), with Avi Arad and Ari Arad producing together with Erik Feig. There’s no release date for the adjustment right now, however recording is anticipated to start in Hungary quickly.
