Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett is in talks to play the role of Lilith in the upcoming Borderlands movie. The movie is an adaptation of a popular video game. Lionsgate will be the producer of this movie. Blanchett is currently seen in the FX miniseries, Mrs America.
Blanchett’s role in the movie
Blanchett will play the role of Lilith in the movie adapted from the famous Borderlands video game. Lilith is one of the playable characters in the game and is also one of the main protagonists. Moreover, she is one of the just six women belonging to a powerful class in the galaxy. Lilith also possesses superhuman powers alongside an incredible mind.
When does the production for the movie start?
The talks regarding a possible Borderlands movie first surfaced back in 2015. Earlier, there was a possibility of Chris McKay directing the film. However, this could not be the case as Eli Roth was signed on by Lionsgate as the director for the Borderlands movie. Lionsgate announced Roth’s hiring in an official announcement earlier this year. Moreover, the announcement also stated that production for the film would begin at the end of the current year. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, this now seems almost impossible.

He will be joined by Strauss Zelnick, chairman, and CEO of Take-Two Interactive. Craig Mazin will be writing the screenplay for the film. Mazin won an Emmy this year for his “Chernobyl”.
