On his Twitter profile, Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”) teased his followers by posting the character silhouette of Cate Blanchet in the upcoming adaptation of the game “Borderlands”.
In the plot, Blanchett will bring to life Lilith, one of the main members of a group known as the Mermaids, made up of women with incredible and unimaginable powers.
In the post, Curtis wrote:
“Welcome to ‘Borderlands’ with a behind-the-scenes secret that I took from Lilith, our legendary heroine, detonator, psychopath, chest hunter fox with a really bad attitude. #Cateblanchett. Brilliant mind. [do diretor] Eli Roth.
Check it out, along with the logo and synopsis:

Lilith, an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet, Pandora, to find the lost daughter of the universe’s most powerful being, Atlas. Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland, an elite ex-mercenary now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina, a pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg, protector of Tiny Tina; Tannis, a scientist on the edge of madness; and Claptrap, an ever-wise robot. These unconventional heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous thugs to find and protect the missing young woman, who holds the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe may be in their hands, but they will fight for something much bigger: for each other.
The cast consists of Cate Blanchett (Lilith), Jack Black (Claptrap), Florian Munteanu (Krieg), Kevin Hart (Roland), Jamie Lee Curtis (Dr. Patricia Tannis), Ariana Greenblatt (Tiny Tina), Edgar Ramirez (Atlas )) and Haley Bennett as the original character.
The original franchise revolves around a group of “Vault Hunters” searching for an alien hiding place on the planet Pandora, which fits in very well with Roth’s previous work.
He is known for directing numerous horror and thriller feature films including “Cannibals”, “Hostel”, “Hall of Hell” and “Before You Go In”.
Remember that the screenplay is written by Craig Mazin (creator of the drama ‘Chernobyl’).
“I’m excited to immerse myself in the world of ‘Borderlands’, and I couldn’t do it with a better screenplay, producer and 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 at that point, ”said Mazin.
The game saga was released in 2009 and had three sequels: “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 exploit their abundance of natural resources and minerals.
