Actor and comedian Kevin Hart has signed on to play Roland in the Borderlands movie.
Eli Roth is directing the Borderlands movie and said in a statement he is “thrilled” to be working with Hart.
“Borderlands is a different kind of role for him, and we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before. He’s going to be an amazing Roland,” said Roth.
The Borderlands movie was announced back in 2015 and is in the works at Lionsgate which is developing it alongside Arad Productions. Avi Arad and his son Ari Arad worked on Iron Man, Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men, and more.
Confirmation that Cate Blanchett has been cast as Lilith also came last year.
The script is being penned by Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin.
