A few years ago we learned of a project with which Gearbox Software was looking to adapt Borderlands to the big screen. Unfortunately, it took many years for the proposal to progress and today it is known that the project is taking shape more and more. Little by little information about the production appears and today we learn that an important Hollywood personality would play a character in the franchise.
A few months ago it was confirmed that the actress who appears in The Lord of the Rings Cate Blanchett would play Lilith, one of the protagonists of the Borderlands film. Well, apparently another of the looter shooter characters will come to life thanks to another well-known actor.
According to information from The Illuminerdi, sources told him that actor, comedian, and producer Kevin Hart is in talks with Lionsgate to portray Roland, a playable character in Borderlands and NPC in its sequel, who is also known as “The Soldier”.
In case you missed it: the director would like the Rock to play a character from the Borderlands movie.
Borderlands Movie Will Bet Big To Reach A Large Audience
In the film, the character is described as “a decent and hardened veteran man” in addition to being a former member of the Crimson Lance, now serving as a soldier. In case this information turns out to be true, fans may be happy, as both Hart and Roland are dark-skinned and it will be interesting to see how Hart takes on the persona of The Soldier. With this, apparently, those in charge of the film try to expand its reach, since we remember that Kevin Hart is one of the most recognized film celebrities and has a large number of fans.
So far, there is no official information in this regard, so we invite you to take these details as a possibility.
We remind you that precisely one of the last productions that Kevin Hart starred in is Jumanji: The Next Level, a film based on the Jumanji franchise, only this time the protagonists are trapped in an enchanted Jumanji video game. While this film had a slight relationship with video games, the Borderlands film would be the first in which Hart would participate, which would be completely based on one.
What do you think of these details? Do you think Kevin Hart is the right actor to play Roland? Tell us in the comments.
The Borderlands movie is in the pipeline, but there is no tentative release date yet. Little is known about the cast, but the director of the film has already mentioned that he will do everything possible to make fans of the series appear in it.
