The film adaptation of the game series Borderlands caught another well-known name. After Cate Blanchett, who is to play the Lilith siren, we recently learned about the cast of Roland, who will be played by Kevin Hart. Now the most important character in Borderlands has come, the robot Claptrap, who is a player’s guide during the series, a source of humor and often precarious situations.
According to the magazine Variety Jack Black, a comedian and musician known from a number of films, such as School of Ro (c) ku, Tropical Storm or the rebooted series Jumanji, in which he also met the above-mentioned Hart, will take on the key role. In addition to acting and working in the band Tenacious D, Black is an avid gambler, and even has his own game channel JablinskiGames.
Director Eli Roth, who worked with Black and Cate Blanchett on the three-year-old film The Wizard’s Hour, mentioned that Claptrap is the funniest character in the game series and that Jack Black is the ideal adept to turn it into a silver screen.
Lionsgate Motion Picture President Nathan Kahane also spared no praise, mentioning that Black’s cast was completely natural and that the filmmakers and producers alike agreed in this regard.
In addition to the names already mentioned, Jamie Lee Curtis, known mainly for his work in the Halloween horror series, is expected to appear in Borderlands. She should play the role of archaeologist and researcher Patricia Tannis in the Borderlands.
