Deadpool director, Tim Miller takes over the Borderlands movie from Eli Roth following orders to take reshoots of the adaptation.
According to Deadline, Eli Roth hasn’t been sacked from the project. Instead, he has been reassigned to work on a movie called “Thanksgiving”.
Roth has been moved onto something else…
Thanksgiving is a horror movie based on a mock trailer that Roth produced for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, over a decade ago on behalf of Grindhouse film.
It is reported that Miller will only be taking over the reshoots for about two weeks. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if that were to change depending on how well those reshoots go.
“Lilith, an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Edgar Ramirez).
“Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland, a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina, a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Florian Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis, the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap, a persistently wiseass robot.
What’s more, despite the apparent troubles, the movie adaptation has put together a star-studded cast.
Borderlands movie has an amazing cast!
The Borderlands movie has been written by Eli Roth and Craig Mazin (Chernobyl/The Last of Us), with Randy Pitchford and Strauss Zelnick (Take-Two Interactive) as executive producers. At this time, there is no release date for the Borderlands movie.
