Borderlands the Movie is Happening With Stars Kevin Hart and Cate Blanchett
Gaming fans are tentative about the project as video game crossovers haven't boded well in the past. It's rare to see one succeed, and Borderlands might be a hard one to produce. Granted, studios left and right are looking to start different projects all from the video game franchise. We've seen the positive reception of the Witcher, granted, it was a book first and is directly tied in with that storyline.
It can work, and with two stars already tied to the movie, this one could succeed where others didn't.
