Cate Blanchett has signed on to play Lilith in the Borderlands movie

Cate Blanchett has signed on to play Lilith in Eli Roth’s Borderlands film. Looks like the talks went well.

The Borderlands film will indeed star Cate Blanchett, Lionsgate has announced.

According to the announcement, posted by Variety, Blanchett will play the role of Lilith, a thief with magical skills in the film adaptation directed by Eli Roth.

Earlier this month it was reported Blanchett was in talks to play the role, and today's announcement confirms she has signed a deal.

“I’m so lucky to have the amazing Cate Blanchett starring in Borderlands," said Roth in the announcement. "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."

The Borderlands film adaptation was first announced in 2015 and was re-confirmed as being in development last year.
