Eli Roth Will Be the Borderlands Movie Director

First, I am so glad to see that more and more games are being adapted into Movies and TV series’. Not so long ago Diablo and Overwatch we’re getting a TV series, and now Borderlands will have its movie. Eli Roth is a well-known director, more so for horror films, but many other names will make the movie just awesome: Avi Arad from Spider-Man into the Spider-verse is also on the list, and you know what that means.

“I am so excited to dive into the world of Borderlands, and I could not be doing it with a better script, producing team, and studio. I have a long, successful history with Lionsgate- I feel like we have grown up together and that everything in my directing career has led to a project of this scale and ambition,” said Roth.

He also said,” I look forward to bringing my own energy, ideas, and vision to the wild fun, and endlessly creative world of the game. Randy Pitchford and everyone at Gearbox have been incredibly supportive of my ideas- it really feels like a perfect storm of creators coming together. We are out to make a new classic, one which the fans of the game will love, but also one which will new audiences globally.”

There are lots of promises, but let’s hope that the movie will live up to the expectations and will stay close to the game’s story. After all, we all know what happened with the Assassin’s creed movie, and we don’t want a repeat of that. Meanwhile, you should get comfortable as the movie won’t release until 2022, hopefully, 2021(the sooner, the better). But I think that I speak in the names of many when I say let them take their time, we don’t want any fails and the longer they work on the movie the smaller the chances are to screw it up.
