The film for Borderlands was already announced in 2015. After a long silence about the project there is finally a new sign of life. Apparently, Oscar winner Cate Blanchett ("The Lord of the Rings: The Companions", "Ocean's 8") was cast for the role of Lilith. This is based on reports from Variety forth. An official confirmation from Lionsgate is still pending, but the engagement plans seem to be quite c oncrete. The official Twitter account of Gearbox, the game's developer, has tweeted about the potential cast.

As has been known for some time, it will be directed by Eli Roth, who is known for his work on "Cabin Fever" and "Hostel". Rumor has it that none of the storylines from the game series should be filmed. Instead, a story from a parallel universe could be implemented with the same characters.
An exciting question of the production will be to what extent the filming will be based on the unique art style of the games. With Cate Blanchett, at least the foundation stone would be laid for solid acting.
