Borderlandsthe awaited film adaptation based on the videogame saga of the same name, is one of the most awaited projects of the near future, however the prolonged lack of updates on the state of production has led fans to ask themselves more than one question.
In fact, filming ended in the summer of 2021 and so far the only promotional material of the film to have seen the light are the silhouettes of the stars involved such as Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis And Kevin Hartas their respective characters. The first footage of the film was also shown at the Cinemacon in April, which, however, while arousing the enthusiasm of the fans, has never been released on the net.
In the last few hours, fortunately, some details have emerged on the state of health of the project, which we testify to as this is alive and well. At the moment, in fact, a long session would be underway additional shootingwhich however would no longer see the designated director at the helm Tim Roth but rather the colleague Tim Miller.
Either way it looks like this is a temporary replacement. As reported by Deadlines the continuation of the work on Borderlands it would lead Roth to a conflict on the agenda. The director thus decided in agreement with Lionsgate to hand over the reins to his colleague for the next two weeks of additional filming as he was busy producing Thanksgivinga horror film taken from the fake trailer he made for Grindhouse as well as a project particularly dear to the director.
In short, the work on the film they proceed expeditiously, and the hope is to see the official trailer of what is one of the most anticipated projects by fans as soon as possible. Below you can read the official synopsis Of Borderlands:
