Starring as Tannis
It’s been announced that Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to the Borderlands Movie produced by Lions Gate. She has been cast to play Tannis and will play alongside Kevin Hart (as Roland) and Cate Blanchett (as Lilith). From the sounds of her tweet, she is SUPER EXCITED to be part of this movie. Eli Roth, the director of the Borderlands, is also glad to have her on board.
Working with the iconic Jamie Lee Curtis has been a life long dream of mine, and I am so excited for her to bring her humor, warmth, and brilliance to the role of Tannis.Director Eli Roth
Dr. Patricia Tannis is an archeologist on the planet of Pandora. Her expertise could help lead to a mysterious vault filled with ancient alien technology. She has a tricky background with Blanchett’s character, Lilith.
It looks like they are taking the Borderlands movie very seriously as they are casting some big talents.
Kevin Hart may be a weird choice if we look at type-casting. Although, some actors have shown their true skills when given a completely different type of role than they usually played.
While I like Jamie Lee Curtis, she has done a lot of great movies, I’m also thinking about sequels. What if this try and figure out video game movies is a success and 1 movie turns into a “Marvel Cinematics Universe” with multiple sequels and spin-offs? Jamie Lee Curtis is getting older, which may be a risk to the longevity of the franchise. But folks also addressed their concern about Cate Blanchett’s age. I think we all expected younger actors, that have a similar age to the character they portray.
I’m still looking forward to the movie and hopefully, they can blow my socks off.
