Cate just previously worked with Eli in 2018′s The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

She is set to star as Lilith, “a siren and legendary thief equipped with magical skills.”

“I’m so lucky to have the amazing Cate Blanchett starring in Borderlands. We had the most incredible collaboration together on The House with a Clock in Its Walls, and I believe there’s nothing she can’t do. From drama to comedy and now action, Cate makes every scene sing. Working with her is truly a director’s dream come true, and I feel so fortunate that I get to do it again on an even bigger scale. Everyone brings their A-game to work with Cate, and I know together we’re going to create another iconic character in her already storied career,” Eli said.

Borderlands is based on the bestselling PC and console gaming franchise, which has sold over 57 million units worldwide.
