Borderlands Movie Casts New Character “Key” To Lilith’s Past
The Borderlands movie has been lining up some pretty interesting actors for its upcoming appearance on the big screen, but it appears that the latest has been revealed as per an exclusive report from IGN. According to the outlet, actress Haley Bennett has been cast in the video-game-based production, though the news didn’t necessarily reveal which role she would be playing, Bennett’s character was teased as being “a key to the past” for Lilith, the power-enhanced protagonist played by actress Cate Blanchett.

Haley Bennett has previously starred in movies like 2020’s Hillbilly Elegy and The Devil All the Time. Though it’s unknown who her new character might be in the Borderlands movie, one may be able to speculate if considering Borderlands’ lore. In the games, Siren characters like Lilith feature fantastic psionic abilities, with only a limited number of powered individuals existing at a time. It’s possible Bennett’s “key” portrayal could be one of these fellow Sirens, or perhaps, more tragically, the one who passes along her powers to Lilith in the first place.
Of course, that’s just my own rabbit hole of speculation. Bennett’s actual role will likely be revealed in due time as production progresses its way to the finish line. The Borderlands movie already boasts an impressive line-up of actors, with the aforementioned Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland, Jamie Lee Curtis Cast as Dr. Tannis, Jack Black as Claptrap, as well as the more recent addition of Tiny Tina to the film. To wrap it all up, horror film director Eli Roth is directing the whole operation.
