Although it has been a while since the last major update on the film, it now seems like the Eli Roth-directed adaptation of the popular video game franchise Borderlands is set to begin filming soon.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Goodman, the head of Hungarian production services company MidAtlantic Films, has revealed that the Borderlands movie is one of the several productions beginning within the country.
“We’re opened up space for a Lionsgate film, Borderlands, we’re doing season three of Jack Ryan for Paramount TV, and we’re doing a Marvel project, which, for the usual security reasons, I can’t talk about,” Goodman said.
The Borderlands franchise takes place in the distant future, as ‘Vault Hunters’ travel to the distant planet of Pandora to hunt for an ancient alien vault filled with advanced technology and weapons.
The Borderlands movie is set to be directed by Eli Roth with Avi and Ari Arad producing along with Erik Feig, executive producer of the video game franchise and founder of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford will serve as executive producer on the adaptation. Craig Mazin, who won an Emmy for writing Chernobyl, has written the latest draft for the film. The film is set to star Cate Blanchett as Lilith, one of the main protagonists in the franchise, and one of the playable characters in the original Borderlands game.
