‘Mad Max in Space’, apparently
Section 6’s Aaron Berg will write the upcoming Borderlands movie.
When news broke last year, little was known beyond the fact Lionsgate was taking the helm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s now been confirmed that the movie will be set on Pandora and is expected to be an “edgy, R-rated take on the material”, loosely translated as a “Mad Max in space”.
Arad Productions — best known for superhero comic-flavoured movies like Iron Man — have signed on to produce.
Arguably Gearbox’s most successful franchise, the series has sold 26 million copies worldwide. Publisher 2K confirmed yesterday Borderlands 3 is going to be a thing, with clues about the latest instalment expected to pop up in Battleborn.
