Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is the latest star to join the forthcoming Borderlands movie. She will be playing an archaeologist named Tannis and may just have the information needed to unlock a mythical vault on Pandora.
Curtis joins Kevin Hart who will be playing Roland, a “serious acting turn for the star”, and Cate Blanchett who will be playing Lilith, a character who appeared in the very first game. Eli Roth is directing the movie having previously worked with Blanchett in the film “The House With a Clock in Its Walls.”
Back in June 2019 Full Circle reported that Lilith will be the main protagonist in the movie but it’s unlikely Kevin Hart will be taking a backseat. A plot summary was also released last year.
The movie will find Lilith in the Atlas Corporation space prison when the CEO gives her the chance to earn her freedom by rescuing his daughter, the foul-mouthed Tiny Tina, on the planet Pandora. The mission takes an unexpected turn when it becomes clear that the little girl is the key to unlocking a valuable alien vault that Atlas wants all for itself.
Joining her on the adventure will be series mascot Claptrap, Tina’s bodyguard Krieg, and a group of vault hunters, but it is unclear if they will be established game characters.
The film has been in development for a good few years and was announced way a back in 2015.
Jamie Lee Curtis is having bit of a Mcconaissance having spent may years away from big budget Hollywood films. The rebooted 2018 Halloween film brought back her character Laurie Strode and she quickly followed it with a star turn in Knives Out. She will also be starring in to the two Halloween sequels that are currently in production, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.
