Haley Bennett joins the Borderlands movie cast in an as-yet-unannounced role

Her role will be "key to the past of Cate Blanchett's character, Lilith".

Haley Bennett is joining the cast for Eli Roth's upcoming Borderlands movie.

While we don't yet know what character she will portray, a report by IGN intimates the figure will be "key to the past of Cate Blanchett's character, Lilith".

Bennett - who's previous work includes Hillbilly Elegy and The Devil All the Time - joins the star-studded Borderlands cast alongside Florian Munteanu (Krieg), Cate Blanchett (Lilith), Kevin Hart (Roland), Jamie Lee Curtis (Dr. Tannis), Jack Black (Claptrap), and Young Gamora actress Ariana Greenblatt (Tiny Tina).

Eli Roth will be directing the Borderlands movie from a script by Craig Mazin (creator of TV series Chernobyl), with Avi Arad and Ari Arad producing alongside Erik Feig. Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford will serve as executive producer.

A film adaptation of Gearbox's sci-fi comedy shooter was first announced all the way back in 2015, but it appeared to be stuck in development limbo until Hostel director Roth's involvement was revealed early 2020.

When​ ​her friends​ ​were falling in love with soap stars, Vikki was falling in love with​ ​video games. She's a survival horror survivalist​ ​with a penchant for​ ​Yorkshire Tea, men dressed up as doctors and sweary words. She struggles to juggle a fair-to-middling Destiny/Halo addiction​ ​and her kill/death ratio is terrible.
