The successful action-role series will win its own movie - with Ilya Roth in the director's chair
With the enjoyable success of the movie Sonic The Hedgehog ($ 216 million revenue in 12 days), it is natural to hear about more ventures becoming games Video Familiar with movies Theater That are starting to advance - and one of them is to translate the great success of the Borderlands series from Gearbox Software to big screen success.
Plans to turn the humorous role-playing games into a movie began in 2015 under Lionsgate Studios, with producers Abi Arad and Ari Arad having a rich experience in leading superhero productions that also received the reins on this project. Now the whole story becomes much more interesting and relevant - with the announcement that Eli Roth will be the director.
Roth is best known for directing horror films, including two controversial Hostel episodes, as well as Bloody Cabin Fever from 2003. He is also recognized for his role as actor in Quentin Tarantino's hit hit, "Honorable Bastards," as Sergeant Donny Donovich. Does this mean that the Borderlands movie can also be expected to contain elements of horror and violence aimed at an adult audience and accompany Ruth's career from the beginning? It's a little hard to believe because such a direction could significantly reduce the target audience relevant to the work, but it's something that will be interesting to find out later on.
With the director's selection and scripted completion of the work for the piece, the next step seems to be to find out who the cast will be - and when we can see the final product in the cinemas of course. It is currently unclear when Borderlands will turn from an idea to a practical production, but it ranks high on the big names exchange of gaming-based cinema - which includes a variety of famous names such as Uncharted, Call of Duty, Minecraft, Half-Life, Metal Gear Solid and Mortal Kombat. Good luck!
