Borderlands movie in the works

Lionsgate has announced it is in production with producers Avi and Ari Arad on a Borderlands movie. Quite little is know about the film at this time however we should expect more information soon regarding specifics.

Borderlands was released in 2009 on multiple platforms and has since picked up a large player base across 3 full feature titles as well as other popular borderlands based mini games such as the tell tale series. Part of what really excites us about this movie is how the film's producers will capture the the essence of the planet of Pandora and the quirky cast of characters.

Lionsgate has emerged as a major creative force in the global marketplace with an incredible portfolio of brands; our partners at Gearbox have pioneered and cultivated an iconic property; and Avi and Ari Arad are two of the most successful producers of action franchises,” Take-Two Interactive Chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick said. “This alliance is ideally positioned to create a bold, provocative, no-holds-barred motion picture phenomenon that will delight ‘Borderlands” current legions of fans and captivate moviegoers around the world.
