Borderlands is an incredibly popular first-person shooter and it looks like the first may be on track to be an incredibly popular, and important, project. Today, a report by Variety said that Oscar-winning Cate Blanchett is in talks to play Lilith. You can read an except from the article below.

It's game on for Cate Blanchett. Sources tell Variety the Oscar-winning actress is in talks to star as Lilith in Lionsgate's 'Borderlands,' an adaptation of the popular video game. Lionsgate had no comment. Eli Roth is directing with Avi and Ari Arad producing through Arad Prods along with Erik Feig, who is also producing via his Picturestart banner. Craig Mazin, who won an Emmy for writing 'Chernobyl,' has written the latest screenplay draft.

It seems like there's a lot of amazing talent behind this project so we'll have to see how it pans out. I'm hoping that the films is actually made, unlike the Uncharted movie.
