“I’m so lucky to have the amazing Cate Blanchett starring in Borderlands,” he says. “We had the most incredible collaboration together on The House with a Clock in Its Walls, and I believe there’s nothing she can’t do.” From drama to comedy and now action, Cate makes every scene sing. Working with her is truly a director’s dream come true, and I feel so fortunate that I get to do it again on an even bigger scale.

Everyone brings their A-game to work with Cate, and I know together we’re going to create another iconic character in her already storied career.”
