Borderlands is an upcoming American science fiction action comedy film based off of Gearbox Software's Borderlands series. The movie is directed by Eli Roth and written by Eli Roth and Craig Mazin.


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. 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, Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis, the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap, a persistently wiseass robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other.



A film adaptation of the video game series was first announced in August 2015 with Lionsgate developing the project with Ari and Avi Arad of Arad Productions producing.

In February 2020, Eli Roth was attached to direct the film from a screenplay written by Craig Mazin, with Erik Feig joining as producer through his production company Picturestart. Cate Blanchett entered negotiations to play the role of Lilith in May 2020, with Lionsgate confirming she would star later in the month. Kevin Hart was confirmed to play Roland in January 2021.

By February 2021, Jamie Lee Curtis was cast to play Dr. Patricia Tannis, with Jack Black cast to provide the voice of Claptrap.

Filming commenced on April 1, 2021, in Budapest, Hungary.
