AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Actress Ariana Greenblatt Joins Eli Roth's BORDERLANDS Movie
Eli Roth's Borderlands has finally found its Tiny Tina, as Ariana Greenblatt — who made her name playing the young Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War and Minnow in Love & Monsters — will portray the young explosives expert in the upcoming movie. The boastful heroin made her debut in 2012's Borderlands 2.
"Ariana is a spectacular new talent in cinema," Roth said. "She's already worked with many of my close collaborators and everyone raves about her. She blew us all away in her audition, and I cannot wait to see her bring the wild, insane, and unpredictable Tiny Tina to the big screen. She is going to blow up on screen like one of Tina’s grenades," The House with a Clock in Its Walls director added.
Greenblatt is the latest addition to the ever-expanding cast of Borderlands, which also includes Cate Blanchett (Thor: Ragnarok, Ocean's Eight) as Lilith, Jack Black (Jumanji: The Next Level, King Kong) as Claptrap, Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween Ends, Knives Out) as Dr. Tannis, and Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence, Ride Along) as Roland.
Interestingly, the latest draft of the flick's script was written by Craig Mazin, one of the masterminds behind HBO's award-winning mini-series Chernobyl and the upcoming The Last of Us TV series starring Pedro Pascal.
The main roles in Borderlands have already been cast, so there's a chance that cameras will finally start rolling on the star-studded video game flick in the near future. The film has not received a concrete release date yet.
