Okay, look, I've got nothing against Eli Roth. I've just never liked a single one of his films. But, that's besides the point! The director of Hostel and Cabin Fever is currently on deck to direct the latest in a string of video game adaptations: a film based on Gearbox Software's Borderlands series.
Iím very excited to welcome Eli Roth as Director of the Borderlands movie in development with Lionsgate and Arad Productions. Please welcome @EliRoth to the team and be sure to catch the @GearboxOfficial Main Theater Show at #PAXEast on 2/27 to learn more. #borderlandsmovie pic.twitter.com/Uaxs7jm10i— Randy Pitchford (@DuvalMagic) February 20, 2020
Joining Roth is Craig Mazin, the screenwriter behind HBO's Chernobyl series, as well as The Hangover Part II. Gearbox's own randy magician Randy Pitchford will also be serving as an executive producer on the film.
We'll keep you posted as we learn more about the Borderlands movie!
