On August 28th, Lionsgate announced that they would be creating a movie based off of the "Borderlands" game series. Here is my list of 5 characters who I think should be in that movie.
I'm counting these two as one character. Rhys and Fiona are the main characters in the recently concluded game, "Tales from the Borderlands". These captivating heroes couldn't be more different, but yet they still work together so well. Rhys and Fiona are such detailed and complex characters, that they could even star in the movie. While it is unlikely that these two will be the protagonists in the film, it would certainly be nice to see them.
4. Mad Moxxi
This violent lunatic would be a welcome addition to the Borderlands films. Most likely playing as a side character, she could help the heroes when they are in need, and introduce the Underdome to the cinematic universe, which would no doubt make for some great scenes.
Any fan of the Borderlands series knows that Claptrap is a necessity to the films. The extremely talkative robot sidekick would be a great character to help the protagonist along the journey. Claptrap would immediately become a fan favorite character, with his kind nature, and desire to help.
Zer0 is a robotic assassin, whose identity is still unknown. I believe that Zer0 could be the films protagonist, if he is cast right. Zer0 is essentially a superhero in the Borderlands universe. The movie could tell his origin story, and show how he fits in to the rest of the Borderlands world. He could make for some incredible action sequences as well.
1. Handsome Jack
Handsome Jack is the one character that cannot be left out of the movie. His dark humor and sinister aura would bring so much life to the film. This Hyperion ruler could pose a major threat to the protagonist, and as we've seen throughout the Borderland games, a hero is only as good as his nemesis. Packed with a dark backstory, he is so mentally broken down, that his unhinged personality could add so much to the film.
Are you excited for the "Borderlands" movie?
These are the 5 characters that I'd like to see in a Borderlands movie. Think I left anybody off the list? Let me know in the comments!
