A live-action adaptation of the Borderlands video game is currently in development with Eli Roth attached as the director. While the shooting for the film has been completed, a small amount of reshoot is said to be pending. According to new reports, director Tim Miller will step-in to finish the reshoots in Eli Roth’s absence. Tim Miller is best known for directing the 2016 Deadpool film starring Ryan Reynolds.
Tim Miller stepping in to finish the project is reportedly happening under amicable terms and Eli Roth is currenrly busy shooting the feature-length version of the parody trailer called Thanksgiving shown in the Grindhouse film. Since the ensemble cast is only available to film within this tight window, Tim Miller was brought on board.
Eli Roth has directed the science fiction comedy film based on a script that he co-wrote with Chornobyl-fame Craig Mazin. Borderlands is based on the space-western role-playing video game series of the same name. The ensemble cast of the film includes Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Florian Munteanu, Bobby Lee, Cheyenne Jackson, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
The makers of the film are yet to confirm a release date for the film.
