According to Bloody Disgusting, Haley Bennett (“Shallow”) has joined the cast of the adaptation of “Borderlands”, which will be directed by Eli Roth (“The Hostel”).
The actress will play an original character who will be important to Lilith’s past, a Cate Blanchett character.
The cast will also include Jack Black (Claptrap), Florian Munteanu (Krieg), Kevin Hart (Roland) and Jamie Lee Curtis (Dr Patricia Tannis).
The original franchise revolves around a group of “Safe Hunters” searching for an alien hiding place on the planet Pandora, which blends well with Roth’s previous work.
He is known for having directed many horror and suspense feature films, including “Cannibals”, “Hostel”, “Cabana do Inferno” and “Beat Before You Enter”.
Recalling that the screenplay is written by Craig Mazin (creator of the drama “Chernobyl”).
“I’m excited to dive into the world of ‘Borderlands’, and I couldn’t do it with a better screenplay, a better producer and a studio. I have a long and very successful history with Lionsgate – I feel like we grew up together and everything in my career came to a head then, ”Mazin said.
The game saga launched in 2009 and featured three sequences: “Borderlands 2” (2012), “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel” (2014) and “Borderlands 3” (2019). The original tale takes place in the distant future, at a time when several mega-corporations seek to control as many planets as possible, colonize them, and explore their abundance of natural resources and minerals.
