Nerd News: Borderlands Movie has First Star Announced

Yesterday Lionsgate officially announced the first addition to the cast of the slated Borderlands movie. We don’t know yet what the plot is going to be and we’re all desperate to see the style they’re going to be heading in! Surely, this being a borderlands movie it’s going to be dirty, gritty and have that comic character feel which so many cosplayers are able to perfectly pull off time and time again! Case in point, just spend literally 2 seconds on Instagram:

We’re going to have Eli Roth at the helm for this movie… We already know that, so I think we’re in safe hands and can’t wait for this to turn in to what should be an incredible sci-fi action fest!

Joining Roth for their second collaboration is Cate Blanchett who will be playing Lilith (who you see so brilliantly portrayed above by cosplayer @sinn_cosplay on the gram). Speaking to variety, Roth had this to say about the casting:

“I’m so lucky to have the amazing Cate Blanchett starring in ‘Borderlands.’ We had the most incredible collaboration together on ‘The House With a Clock in Its Walls,’ and I believe there’s nothing she can’t do. From drama to comedy and now action, Cate makes every scene sing. Working with her is truly a director’s dream come true, and I feel so fortunate that I get to do it again on an even bigger scale.  Everyone brings their A-game to work with Cate, and I know together we’re going to create another iconic character in her already storied career.”

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
