Today, I learned Eli Roth Is Directing Borderlands... And Kevin Hart's In It
I hope the movie is as dystopian as Borderlands
Eli Roth is directing the Borderlands movie. Borderlands is a game that revolutionized and created the 'looter-shooter'. It's one of the most successful game franchises to date. The comic book graphics, the humor, not to mention the bazillion of guns you get throughout the series, is why you keep coming back for more. Not to mention the dystopian, barrenness of the game that makes everything feel like the setting of a Mad Max movie.
Regardless, this is big news.
I can't anticipate movies anymore, there's just so much anticipation I'm going to go numb and stop anticipating. BUT I LOVE ANTICIPATING. I ANTICIPATE THE SHIT OUT OF THIS! Eli Roth has created some of the most gritty and surrealistic horror movies.
Not only is Kevin Hart on board, playing Roland, but Cate Blanchett will star in the movie too. If you're worried because you know Hart is a goofball and Roland is far from that, Eli Roth said in a statement that, "-we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before."
Can't be a Borderlands movie if Randy Pitchford wasn't executive producing. Hopefully, he brings a little movie magic. Avi and Ari Arad are producing. Two-time Emmy award winner Craig Mazin wrote the screenplay.
