Looks like a new character will be brought to life in Eli Roth’s upcoming film adaptation of Gearbox Software’s Borderlands universe, as IGN reports that Swallow and The Devil All The Time actress Haley Bennett has been cast in the Borderlands Movie — in a mysterious new character role that has yet to be revealed.
While no further details were disclosed as to what her role is specifically, the report points out that Bennett’s character is unnamed but will be key to the past of Cate Blanchett’s character Lilith. Lilith of course is a Siren — one of six who have incredible abilities and is able to wield powerful magic as well. The original Borderlands saw Lilith as a playable character, but eventually the sequels and the spin-offs have regulated her to a Non-Playable Character role. It could be that Haley’s character will play a part in explaining the origins of Lilith, but we’ll find out more details with Roth divulges more about the film as it currently continues production.
Featuring a star-studded cast that already includes Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Jamie Lee Curtis, the Borderlands movie has also recently cast Creed 2 actor Florian Munteanu as Krieg — which you can read about here.
