Marvel Studios founder Avi Arad and son Ari Arad team up with Lionsgate to bring the critically acclaimed blockbuster video game Borderlands to life on the big screen, as a tent-pole feature film. Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person shooter created and developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K. Since 2009 the award winning franchise has sold over 26 million copies and in that time has managed to build an incredibly passionate global fan base.
Set in the frontier of a sci-fi universe, Borderlands is best known for Gearbox’s blending of irreverent humor and characters, with a unique comic-book art style, and co-operative four-player genre-bending, loot-grabbing gameplay. It’s a franchise that in the last six years has ushered in a new and popular category of first-person shooters.
