A lot of fans have not been taking this one too seriously. Mostly because of the announcement that Actor/Comedian Kevin Hart would be cast as lead in the upcoming live-action adaptation Lionsgate’s ‘Borderlands’. Then the project seemed to have been coming to shape when news dropped that Cate Blanchette would be tagging along for the ride. Oh, but now, it doesn't stop there.
Deadline reports, two-time Golden Globe winner Jamie Lee Curtis has come aboard the Eli Roth-directed movie adaptation of the bestselling video game, joining Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart.
Curtis is said to play Tannis, an archeologist on Pandora who might have the key to finding the vault, but whose complicated history with Lilith (Blanchett) isn’t going to help.
The film is based on the PC and console gaming experience from developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K, the Lionsgate film is set in the distant future when four “vault hunters” travel to the distant planet Pandora to hunt down an alien vault rumored to contain advanced technology.
The most recent screenplay was written by Craig Mazin and produced by Avi Arad and Ari Arad through their Arad Productions banner with Erik Feig of Picturestart. Exec producers are Randy Pitchford, EP of the Borderlands video game franchise and founder of Gearbox Entertainment, and Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO of 2K parent Take-Two Interactive.
