Well...this is both surprising and quite interesting. Being a big fan of the games I will be most curious to see how this translates to film.

I just looked at his directing credits and he has mostly done horror movies. I haven't seen any of this films.

Good call. I suspect I will not like the movie, if I see it. I don't place the same sort of value on film as others do, as I reckon it's mostly sh!t. But I could be pleasantly surprised by this. I struggle to imagine Borderlands as a live action project though. It's as if the whacky nature of it needs to be animated (CGI is the next best thing I suppose). Can they pull it off? Time will tell (if it ever makes it to release)

But I love the games, and the potential is there for something really epic. I will expect failure so that I am not disappointed smile

With Randy Pitchford involved I guess we'll have to put up with a fake Claptrap again.
