Borderlands Movie goes Back for Reshoots, Gets New Director

Borderlands Movie Production Update

When cameras first started rolling on the Borderlands movie, it was all the way back in 2021. Production has been slow but steady, with initial test screenings late last year. Apparently those screenings have inspired a set of changes to the film – not only content-wise, but also directorially.

Tim Miller has inherited the project from Eli Roth. Miller already has movies under his belt, directing a Deadpool movie, and a Terminator one. Only time will tell if his skillset meshes well with Borderlands’ iconic style. Right now, the changes are expected to take just two weeks of production time.

If you’d like to see where Borderlands is currently at stylistically, here’s a review we did for the latest piece of Tales from the Borderlands content.

Right now, we don’t have a lot of information on what the movie will be like. It’s just too early in production for things like that to be made public – we don’t even have a release date yet. As a result, we also don’t know which of these mystery contents needed changing. Sounds like the perfect topic for a behind-the-scenes coverage piece though, so there’s a nonzero chance we’ll find out at some point maybe!

What little info we have can be found in these production photos – and they look fairly impressive! Absolutely worth a glance if you’re a fan of Borderlands content.

So, if you’re plugged in to the state of modern Borderlands, what sorts of things do you suspect they might need to cut? Was there a joke or action too “fun” for modern film audiences? Or was ir something plot-related? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments down below!
