The Borderlands movie takes more shape as the celebrities who will bring the characters of the game to life are revealed. In recent weeks, a large part of the cast has been unveiled and it seems the goal is to announce it gradually since today one more actor was revealed who will join the production.
The production team has announced that great personalities such as Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Hart and Jack Black will be part of the project and today it was announced that another important celebrity will play a recognized character from the series.
Through the Hollywood Reporter, the filmmakers revealed that boxer and actor Florian Munteanu will be in charge of giving life to Krieg, who you may remember as a playable character in Borderlands 2. In case the actor’s name is unfamiliar to you, you should know that he participated in Creed II: Defending the Legacy to play boxer Viktor Drago. According to the information, it is a matter of time before the role he will play is confirmed, since both parties are in the final negotiations.
FLORIAN MUNTEANU MANAGED TO CAPTURE KRIEG’S PERSONALITY
In the film, Krieg will be a kind of protector of Tiny Tina, a 13-year-old character who will be played by actress Ariana Greenblatt.
Florian brings true humanity and multiple layers to a character who on the surface appears totally insane and brutally savage. Krieg was by far the most difficult role to play, and Florian brought it to life and captured it in a way that he didn’t know was possible. He’s going to be a great Krieg and he’ll be a perfect fit for our incredible cast, ”Roth commented.
“Here we go. Very excited for this one. I immediately fell in love with this role as soon as I got my eye on it. I can’t wait to bring Krieg to life. GIVE IT! ”, The actor commented after the news was made official.
As you can see, the actor managed to capture Krieg’s personality in a surprising way, but not only that, but another point in favor is Munteanu’s complexion, since his height of 1.93 meters and his corpulent body closely resembles that of Krieg. We leave you with a picture of Krieg and Munteanu.
