Based mostly on the shooter sequence of the identical title, the Borderlands movie now has an official launch date: August 9, 2024. The action-comedy adaptation completed principal pictures in 2021, however has since been considerably caught in post-production limbo with a number of rounds of reshoots pushing the discharge additional than anticipated.
This comes after co-writer Craig Mazin – greatest generally known as the showrunner of HBO’s The Final Of Us and Chornobyl – dropped his title from the challenge in favor of a pseudonym. Extra not too long ago, Mazin confirmed to Selection that reviews of the pseudonym had been false and that he’s “not a credited author” on Borderlands. Mazin is as an alternative specializing in the second season of The Final Of Us.
The Borderlands was primarily directed by Eli Roth, recognized for his work on the movies Hostel and Cabin Fever. Roth was reportedly busy throughout filming, so studio Lionsgate enlisted the assistance of Tim Miller, the director behind Deadpool, to helm the challenge for a couple of weeks.
The solid contains Academy Award winners Cate Blanchett and Jamie Lee Curtis, alongside Kevin Hart, Ariana Greenblatt and Jack Black as Claptrap. The movie follows Blanchett’s model of the vault hunter Lilith, who returns to Pandora and accepts a mission from Atlas, the highly effective weapons producer.
I’ve at all times discovered the primary Borderlands video games a bit grindy and/or irritating, however Tales From The Borderland (not the sequel) was a shock within the money-hungry universe. Plus Blanchett not less than makes even the sloppiest enjoyable to look at, so I count on a couple of good laughs and possibly a great motion scene or two.
We’ll see if the Borderlands film seems to be good, dangerous, or so dangerous it is quickly to be good, so.
