Cate Blanchett has signed on to front Eli Roth‘s adaptation of the Borderlands video game.
The 51-year-old actress has joined the film as the character Lilith, a thief equipped with magical skills.
The project will reunite Cate with Roth, who she previously worked with on The House with a Clock in Its Walls in 2018.
“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.”
