BORDERLANDS Movie In Development

imageWell it looks like Lionsgate is planing on bringing the popular video game franchise, Borderlands, to the big screen. All we know as of now is that Avi Arad (The Amazing Spider-Man) and his son Ari Arad will produce the film adaptation.

Here’s the story according to Wikipedia:

In the distant future, in the year 2864, several colonization ships head to Pandora, a planet on the edge of the galaxy. The colonists are drawn there in search of a better life as well as vast mineral resources said to be on the planet, free for the taking, akin to a futuristic gold rush. Some time after settling, the colonists discover that there is little the planet offers aside from some decrepit alien ruins. When the companies mining the planet leave, they let loose the criminals they had employed as forced labor and left any other colonists there. Some of the settlers seek to get rich quick by discovering alien technology. Most others are just trying to survive. After seven Earth years, the planet’s slow orbit brings a transition from winter to spring, and many horrifying creatures emerge from hibernation.
