Borderlands Movie Officially Casts Cate Blanchett As Lilith
We’ve some incredible news for those looking forward to Eli Roth’s upcoming live-action Borderlands movie! Earlier this month, we reported that Cate Blanchett (Thor: Ragnarok) was in talks to play Lilith, the fan-favorite siren from the video game series. These talks have apparently paid off, as Cate Blanchett has officially been cast as Lilith for the upcoming film.
The news comes by way of the folks over at Variety, which reported on Lionsgate’s announcement that Eli Roth would be reuniting with Cate Blanchett, who worked together on ‘The House With a Clock in Its Walls.’ “I’m so lucky to have the amazing Cate Blanchett starring in ‘Borderlands,'” Roth said. “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.”
For those unfamiliar, the character Lilith is one of a chosen few that are known as Sirens within the Borderlands universe, a group of women that possess extremely powerful abilities. Given Blanchett’s repertoire this seems like an incredible casting, and one that should excite all those looking forward to the Borderlands movie. Here’s hoping the rest of the characters receive similarly perfect casting.
