The upcoming Borderlands movie is one of the most anticipated upcoming video game adaptations thanks to its amazing cast, and now the latest news about the movie has come to light. Deadline reports that Deadpool director Tim Miller is stepping into reshoots for the Borderlands movie.
Borderlands director Eli Roth is not shooting reshoots himself as he moves forward with his next project, the horror film Thanksgiving. Recently, reports appeared on the web that Roth was kicked out of Borderlands, but Deadline reports that this is not true.
“Deadline hears that Miller, amicably passing the baton, will do several weeks of Borderlands reshoots that took a long time to get on screen,” the site said.
The nature and extent of the replays were not discussed in the report. However, reshoots in any film production are not uncommon.
As previously announced, the Borderlands movie features a long list of top talent, including Oscar winner Cate Blanchett as Lilith and Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina. Kevin Hart plays Roland and Edgar Ramirez plays Atlas. The film also stars Jack Black as the voice of Claptrap and Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis. Florian Munteanu plays Kreig.
The Borderlands movie was written by Craig Mazin (HBO The Last of Us) and Roth. Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford is executive producing the film, alongside Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

Recently, Pitchford clarified that there is a difference between what he called the Borderlands Cinematic Universe and the Borderlands Video Game Universe.
“We’re authentic in character, tone and style, but allow for standalone stories. Media isn’t the same, so content shouldn’t follow the same rules,” he said.
Pitchford also touched on whether the Borderlands movie is canon. It’s canon, but only to the Borderlands cinematic universe,” he explained.
“The movie is the canon of the cinematic universe. Games are the canon of the video game universe. There are similarities between them, but also differences. All right. Consider how Marvel handled the movies and comics if that’s hard for you to understand.” he said on Twitter.
