Do you remember the movie Borderlands what were they going to do? The one that was announced for the first time back in 2015 and that only in 2021 did it start filming. Well, there’s news. This delivery of Lionsgate, based on the shooter game series, had a director change, but it’s not what you’d imagine. Tim Miller, director of Deadpool, arrived to replace and fill the position of Eli Roth only for two weeks.

As reported Deadline, Tim Miller was in charge of adapting Borderlands While Eli Roth ends with filming Thanksgivingthe horror movie based on a mock trailer he made for Grindhouse of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. This was supposed to last for two weeks, so he’ll be seen again soon in the production of Borderlands.

In case you don’t remember, the trailer for Thanksgiving featured a bloody sneak peek at a pseudo-movie in which a slasher makes his own dinner with the inhabitants of a Massachusetts town. One of the scenes in the video involved the same Rothwhose head is lopped off while in the middle of a date in a convertible car.

This trailer was popular enough that plans to make a feature film with Roth as director.
