Looks like one of favourite comedians, Kevin Hart, is set to have a prominent role in the upcoming Borderlands movie.

The adaptation of the videogame series will see Hart playing the soldier Roland who, I’m told, is a big character in the game (I do declare I have never played it).

While very little is known about the movie, director Eli Roth has been chatty about Hart’s casting, saying it’ll be unlike anything Hart has done so far.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Kevin,” Roth said.

“Borderlands is a different kind of role for him, and we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before. He’s going to be an amazing Roland.”

Hart joins Cate Blanchett who will play another major character, Lilith, in the games.

The movie, while still shrouded in mystery, is penned by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin, so there’s no arguing there’s real talent going into this adaptation.

What say you all? Are you excited for the Borderlands movie? Let me know…

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
