Variety has revealed news that a Borderlands movie is in development by Lionsgate.
Producers Avi and Ari Arad have been linked to the project. The duo have worked on Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men, Ghost Rider and Blade movies (ed. So hit or miss on the quality there).
Take-Two Interactive Chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick said
Lionsgate has emerged as a major creative force in the global marketplace with an incredible portfolio of brands; our partners at Gearbox have pioneered and cultivated an iconic property; and Avi and Ari Arad are two of the most successful producers of action franchises. This alliance is ideally positioned to create a bold, provocative, no-holds-barred motion picture phenomenon that will delight Borderlands’ current legions of fans and captivate moviegoers around the world.
There is no word on which, if any, characters from the games will feature in the Borderlands movie but we expect Claptrap will be there at least.
