Eli Roth’s Borderlands movie has gathered quite a huge amount of stars from Kevin Smith to Jack Black, and though we don’t have an official look at the movie yet, Jamie Lee Curtis, who plays Tannis in the movie, has given a teaser for Cate Blanchett’s Siren leader, Lilith.
This was Curtis’ post:

In the original Borderlands game, Lilith was a leader of the Sirens, a group of women with special powers. We don’t know if Lilith will be the central character of the film, but at the age of 52, I’m not expecting someone like Blanchett to be doing a lot of action in this movie. If anything, I’m expecting her role to be some kind of Mad Max version of Galadriel from Lord of the Rings, but that’s just speculation on my part.
With the Mad Max spinoff Furiosa pushing forward with Anya Taylor-Joy, director Eli Roth will have to find a way to make his Borderlands film be more visually distinct—which is kind of hard to do since Mad Max has provided the template for these colorful, post-apocalyptic wastelands. Maybe we could have a story set in space? All we can really do is wait and see.
Besides Blanchett, and previously mentioned actors, the film also includes Haley Bennet, Gina Gershon, Edgar Ramirez, Ariana Greenblatt, Janina Gavankar, and Bobby Lee.
Here’s the official description of Borderlands so far:
A feature film based on the popular video game set on the abandoned fictional planet of Pandora where people search for a mysterious relic.
The Borderlands movie is expected to come out sometime in 2022.
