Roth Heads to the “Borderlands”

Eli Roth is going to the Borderlands.

Roth has signed on to direct a live-action adaptation of the 2K Games video game franchise for Lionsgate Films. The games revolve around four “Vault Hunters” travel to the distant planet Pandora to hunt down an alien vault, rumored to contain advanced alien technology. The hunters find themselves battling the local wildlife and bandit population, but ultimately attempt to stop the head of a private corporation army from reaching the vault first.

Craig Mazin wrote a script that Roth has said he really liked and producing will be Avi Arad, Ari Arad, and Erik Feig. Production is set to begin later this year for a 2021 release.
