The film based on the successful video game franchise is setting up a model cast.
The Borderlands adaptation doesn’t just feature a director with a great personality and a writer in full swing of his talents. That is, just having Eli Roth and Craig Mazin (responsible for Chernobyl and the next series of The Last of Us, also based on a video game) on board, would be enough for Borderlands to be promising, but it is also putting point a very shocking cast.

All of them join a cast where, in addition to the aforementioned Black and Blanchett, we already find Jamie Lee Curtis as Patricia Tannis, Kevin Hart as Roland, Édgar Ramírez as Atlas, and Ariana Greenblattas Tiny Tina, Florian Munteanu as Krieg and Haley Bennett in roles to be determined. This has been created specifically for the film, and is known to be an important figure in Lilith’s past.
Borderlands is loosely based on the video game series of the same title, which was released in 2009 and spawned one last exponent two years ago when Borderlands 3 was released in 2019. The brand has already inspired novels and comics and is characterized by dark humor in combination with unprejudiced ultraviolence, of which Roth can give a good account. Its adaptation of Borderlands tells how the outlaw Lilith arrives on the planet Pandora and there she is hired by Atlas to rescue her daughter, joining Tannis, Roland, Tiny Tina, Krieg, and Claptrap on his expedition, and having to face everything on the way. kind of monsters and bandits.
