The movie is nonetheless being made, and directed by Hostel’s Eli Roth.
But so far as reshoots are involved, Roth’s not dealing with these duties. According to Deadline, retailers that lately reported that Roth was fired are overstating issues: Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller is stepping to deal with the 2 weeks’ value of extra capturing. At the second, Roth is busy directing the horror film Thanksgiving, primarily based off a faux film trailer from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s 2007 movie Grindhouse. Shooting for that movie begins in March, and Lionsgate (with Roth’s approval) opted to herald Miller for the end line.
As beforehand acknowledged, Lionsgate has been attempting its hardest to get a Borderlands film into existence. The studio first introduced a movie adaptation in 2015, with Roth ultimately signed on to direct and write the screenplay with eventual The Last of Us showrunner Craig Mazin. In the time it’s taken for the film to return out, the franchise has step by step made one thing of a comeback. Borderlands 3 launched in 2019 (seven years after the retail launch of Borderlands 2). In 2022, Gearbox launched Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, a Dungeons & Dragons-themed spinoff of the mainline video games that bought like gangbusters; and New Tales from the Borderlands, Gearbox’s comply with as much as the 2014 choice-driven interactive journey sport from the now defunct Telltale video games.
If and when that Borderlands film comes out, it’ll be attention-grabbing to see what sort of place the franchise is in by that time, and what comes out of the collection within the aftermath of the movie’s launch.
