The Borderlands movie cast just keeps growing.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Jamie Lee Curtis is joining the cast of the Borderlands movie in the role of Patricia Tannis, an archaeologist on the world of Pandora whose “complicated” history with Lilith that could get in the way of opening the fabled vault. The news was later confirmed by the official Twitter account for Borderlands franchise developer Gearbox.

According to the Borderlands Wiki, Tannis is a former employee of the Dahl Corporation, “has a tenuous grip on sanity,” strongly dislikes social interactions, and has “a very strange set of morals”. She’s also one of the top experts on Eridians and Vaults, which makes her popular amongst vault hunters.
Jamie Lee Curtis is a legendary veteran actress best known for starring in multiple Halloween movies, as well as other horror and non-horror films alike. She joins Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart on the Borderlands movie, who will play the vault hunters Lilith and Roland, respectively.
Directed by Eli Roth, the Borderlands movie doesn’t have a release date yet but is slated to begin production soon in Hungary.
