As reported by Slash Film, Penn Jillette would join the cast of Borderlands, live-action adaptation of the video game of the same name, which sees among its protagonists the actors Kevin Hart and Jamie Lee Curtis to form a decidedly unprecedented couple on the big screen. The cast also features Cate Blanchett and Jack Black. Filming is underway.
Jillette also added that hers will be a small role and that it will take him three weeks of filming. Speaking of her role, Jillette also added: “I will be together with Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Jamie Lee Curtis and Kevin Hart, with most of my scenes with Kevin Hart. I have a very, very, very small part, I have, like, four scenes and four lines of dialogue“Borderlands filming is underway.
Jillette then added: “I am a priest trying to conduct a wedding ceremony and then there is a fight scene. So I watch the whole fight scene just by standing there. Then I enter the game and suddenly I’m in a spaceship with Kevin Hart“Jillette then pointed out how her part is very similar to a cameo and a real role.
This the official plot of the film released by Lionsgate: “Two-time Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett will team up with Kevin Hart in Eli Roth’s Borderlands. Lilith (Blanchett), a notorious outlaw with a mysterious past, will unwillingly return to her planet, Pandora, in search of the missing daughter of the greatest SOB in the universe, Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith will form an alliance with a decidedly unexpected team: Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a ferocious pre-teen wrecker; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s muscular protector with some rhetoric difficulties; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist on the edge of sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a rather persistent know-it-all robot“.
Borderlands is directed by Eli Roth.
