Blanchett set to star as legendary thief Lilith, while Hart will play skilled soldier Roland. Curtis will play Tannis, an archeologist on Pandora who might have the key to finding a vault filled with alien weapon technology, but whose complicated history with Lilith isn’t going to help.
The Borderlands video game series launched in 2009, with Gearbox Software and publisher 2K debuting the latest title, Borderlands 3, in September 2019. The series has sold more than 66 million units.
Avi Arad and Ari Arad are producing Borderlands via their Arad Productions banner. Erik Feig is producing through Picturestart. The executive producers are Randy Pitchford, executive producer of the Borderlands video game franchise and founder of the Gearbox Entertainment Company, and Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO of Take-Two Interactive.
Curtis, who was recently seen in Rian Johnson's whodunit Knives Out, is set to reprise her role as Laurie Strode in Halloween Kills and the follow-up, Halloween Ends, due out in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
