For a while we have known that Eli Roth has been assembling the film for the video game adaptation of Borderlands. Kevin Hart recently had an interview over at Collider and promised the movie looks very much like the game itself.
Here is what he said.
Once again, it’s all about the shock factor. This is me stepping into action full speed ahead, no comedy. I’m responsible for the action…[Director Eli Roth] said, ‘Kevin, if you tell me that you can show up prepared and that you want to come in and knock this out, then you’re my guy.’ So I went, I did some training with some Navy SEALS, I got real good with weapons, I got real good with my hand-to-hand combat. And the experience here in Budapest filming Borderlands has been unreal. Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, myself, Flo [Munteanu], Ariana [Greenblatt]… I mean, our cast is unreal. He truly is knocking this movie out the park. And I can say visually, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. Somehow I find myself in these spaces where you get a part of these IPs that are hitting the big screen and have the potential to become so much more. … Borderlands, nobody knows what to expect, but if this thing comes and it smacks people correctly, you could be looking at Borderlands 2, Borderlands 3. It’s that good.
