Jamie Lee Curtis has joined the cast of the forthcoming adaptation of popular video game franchise Borderlands

The Halloween star will play archaeologist Dr. Patricia Tannis, alongside Cate Blanchett as Lilith (one of the original game’s principal characters). Kevin Hart is already onboard as vault hunter Roland.

The sci-fi action film, based on the Gearbox Software/2K Games FPS, will be directed by Eli Roth (Hostel, The House with a Clock in Its Walls) from a screenplay by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Aaron Berg.

“Working with the iconic Jamie Lee Curtis has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I am so excited for her to bring her humour, warmth and brilliance to the role of Tannis,” said Roth in a statement.

Production is expected to commence soon in Hungary.
