With the Eli Roth-directed adaptation of the popular video game franchise Borderlands set to begin filming soon, the film has added Jamie Lee Curtis (Knives Out, Halloween) in a major role.
According to Collider, Jamie Lee Curtis will be portraying Tannis, an archaeologist on Pandora who might have the key to finding the vault, but who also has a complicated history with Lilith. Curtis will be starring alongside Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart, who is set to play Lilith and Roland respectively.
Director Eli Roth provided a brief statement on the casting of Jamie Lee Curtis: “Working with the iconic Jamie Lee Curtis has been a life long dream of mine, and I am so excited for her to bring her humor, warmth and brilliance to the role of Tannis.”
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.
