Lionsgate has revealed the official logo for their upcoming Borderlands movie, which stays pretty true to the video game source material, albeit with a major infusion of color.
Production is currently underway in Hungary, and while it’ll likely be a while before we get a first look at any footage or the characters, the synopsis reveals that the film will follow Lilith (Cate Blanchett) on her quest to find the missing daughter of the universal’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Edgar Ramirez). She’ll recruit an unexpected team and embark on an epic journey where they’ll be forced to battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power.
Kevin Hart recently teased, "THIS ONE IS GOING TO BE SPECIAL!!!!! Brace yourselves people….THE ACTION IS INSANE…I am beyond thankful for this opportunity…. Operation SHOCK THE 🌎 IS IN SESSION"
Horror maestro Eli Roth (The House with a Clock in Its Walls; Death Wish) is in the director’s chair, utilizing a screenplay from 2x Primetime Emmy-winner Craig Mazin (Chernobyl; The Last of Us)
The film’s all-star cast also features Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween; Knives Out) as Dr. Patricia Tannis, 2x Golden Globe-nominee Jack Black (Tropic Thunder; Jumanji: The Next Level) as Claptrap, Janina Gavankar (The League; The Way Back) as Knoxx, Ariana Greenblatt (Avengers: Infinity War; Love and Monsters) as Tiny Tina, Florian Munteanu (Creed II; Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) as Krieg, Olivier Richters (Black Widow; The King’s Man) as Krom, and Haley Bennett (The Magnificent Seven; The Devil All the Time) in an undisclosed role.
Additional parts will be filled by Gina Gershon (Face/Off; Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as Mad Moxxi, Cheyenne Jackson (30 Rock; American Horror Story) as Jakobs, Charles Babalola (The Legend of Tarzan; Black Mirror) as Hammerlock, Benjamin Byron Davis (Ant-Man and the Wasp; Parks and Recreation) as Marcus, Steven Boyer (The Wolf of Wall Street; Hustlers) as Scooter, Ryann Redmond (Younger; Heels) as Ellie, comedian Bobby Lee (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas; Pineapple Express) as Larry, and Penn Jillette as a preacher.
No release date has been set just yet, but it seems probable the film will be with us in 2022.

Two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett teams up with Kevin Hart in director Eli Roth’s Borderlands. Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a persistently wiseass robot.
These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other. Based on the game from Gearbox and 2K, one of the bestselling videogame franchises of all time, welcome to Borderlands.
