It seems that the film based on the video game Borderlands, by Gearbox and Take 2, is taking shape. Its production is going to start imminently. This is indicated by the Hungarian production company MidAtlantic Films, which lists this film along with other films among the projects that Hungary will have as a location for filming throughout 2021.
Adam Goodman, a representative of the company, mentions the green light for the Lionsgate project , led by Eli Roth. Hungary has become a suitable destination for productions that want to resume or start filming after the events of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We open space for Borderlands, a Lionsgate film. Also for the third season of Jack Ryan and for a Marvel film that, for the usual security reasons, I cannot speak,” Goodman indicates in statements to the THR portal.
After a long road, the light is being seen for the Borderlands film project, which was initially announced in 2015. From the film we know that Eli Roth will be in charge, with a script that runs by Craig Mazin ( Chernobyl, The Last of Us series) and that the actress Cate Blanchett will take on the role of Lilith. Actor Kevin Hart was also sounding for the cast, but his presence has not been made official.
