TERMINATOR: DARK FATE Director Tim Miller Steps In To Direct BORDERLANDS Reshoots For Eli Roth

It's been revealed that Deadpool director Tim Miller has been enlisted to take charge of Borderland's upcoming reshoots, replacing original filmmaker Eli Roth. Find more details on what's happening here...

Following rumours that Deadpool helmer Tim Miller had taken over directing duties from Eli Roth on the upcoming Borderlands movie, Deadline has shared some details on what's really going on. 

Roth, whose directing credits include Hostel and The Green Inferno, will make his big-budget action debut with this video game adaptation. 

However, he's now handed over the reins of the movie to his friend, Miller, for two weeks of reshoots. Why? Well, he had to start work on his upcoming horror movie Thanksgiving, so this seems to be a case of scheduling issues rather than anything nefarious! 

The trade reiterates that Roth has not been fired, and that this was an "amicable handing of the baton." Additional photography is a normal part of any big movie's production schedule, and the buzz surrounding Borderlands is positive. As always, we can't help but wonder if there's something more at play here, but that would be pure speculation.

Roth, for example, doesn't have a tonne of action experience, whereas Miller's credits include movies like Deadpool and Terminator: Dark Fate. With Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey, for example, John Wick director Chad Stahelski was enlisted to take the helm of some action scenes given Cathy Yan's inexperience in that realm, so perhaps that's the case here too? 

Regardless, in Borderlands, Lilith (Cate Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Edgar Ramirez).

Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Kevin Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Ariana Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Florian Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Jack Black), a persistently wiseass robot.

These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other.

Borderlands doesn't currently have a release date, but will likely hit theaters sometime in 2024.
