Boarderlands is getting the big screen treatment from directors Eli Roth. Cate Blanchett is already set to star as Lilith while The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting Kevin Hart will be joining her as the soldier Roland.
Rumors abound about an emotionally drive script from Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin, that has Hollywood buzzing and looks to be bringing big names to star.
In statement Roth said the following about Hart joining the cast.
I’m thrilled to be working with Kevin,” said Roth in a statement.
Borderlands is a different kind of role for him, and we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before. He’s going to be an amazing Roland.Eli Roth
Boarderlands is based of the hit video game series from publisher 2K and Gearbox Entertainment that follows a band of “vault hunters’ who seek an alien artifact that can change the course of Pandora and the universe. The game features high action, extreme violence and lots of guns, something the movie will surely lean into with Roth behind the camera.
