Excited too Eli Roth, director designated for the project:
“I'm lucky to have the fantastic Cate Blanchett in Borderlands. We had the most incredible collaboration together for 'The mystery of the house of the time' and I think there is nothing that you cannot do. From drama to comedy and now the action, Cate is able to make any scene sing ". Working with her is truly every director's dream come true and I feel really lucky to have this opportunity on a larger scale. Each director gives his best to work with Cate and I know that together we will create another iconic character in his already rich career ".
The Borderlands film is currently in pre-production and has not yet a confirmed release date. In the meantime, those who have not yet done so can recover much of the saga thanks to the Handsome Collection offered free from Epic Games Store.
