This just in; a Borderlands movie is in production!
Lionsgate is developing a tentpole movie based on the videogame “Borderlands,” with producers Avi and his son Ari Arad who have been involved in the creation of the film franchises for Iron Man, Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men, Ghost Rider, and Blade. Since Nerdist Industries CEO Peter Levin became president of interactive ventures and games, Lionsgate made a major push into video game franchises last year.
“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.”Gearbox Entertainment
