Lionsgate has unveiled a new image for Eli Roth’s film adaptation of Borders, showing her starry actors flocking together in their character outfits. Although based on the Gearbox Software video game franchise of the same name, the film will take place in a different universe than its source. The story will center on a group of mercenaries tasked with finding the missing daughter of a powerful businessman, Atlas, but also finding the fate of the universe in their hands.
Cate Blanchett directs a cast consisting of Kevin Hart, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jack Black, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, Édgar Ramirez, Haley Bennett and Janina Gavankar.

Neither Roth nor the studio have offered official confirmation as to when production is expected to end. Borders, making its release date all the more uncertain for those who can’t wait to see their favorite characters come to life on the big screen. With the recent revelations regarding the looks on Claptrap and the rest of the crew, however, it’s possible that a release date announcement may be very near.
