Eli Roth‘s star-studded movie adaptation of the video game series Borderlands has wrapped filming.
Cate Blanchett leads the action movie based on the first-person space western shooter game, with stars like Kevin Hart, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jack Black rounding out the cast. But Black will notably not actually be showing up in-person — he’ll be voicing the robot Claptrap.
The Borderlands website describes the movie like this: “Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a persistently wiseass robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other. Based on the game from Gearbox and 2K, one of the bestselling videogame franchises of all time, welcome to Borderlands.”
The Borderlands Twitter page announced that Roth’s video game movie has officially wrapped production with an image of the loveable robot Claptrap.
