President of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Nathan Kahane agreed that adding Black as the sarcastic robot was “one of the biggest no-brainer casting decisions we’ve ever made.”

Black joins Jamie Lee Curtis (who will be playing Dr. Tannis), Kevin Hart as “Borderlands 2” character Roland (described as a skilled ex-soldier turned mercenary), and Cate Blanchett as Lilith.

 “Chernobyl” scribe Craig Mazin wrote the most recent “Borderlands” script for the Lionsgate release, and that’s about all we know at this point.
