Peter Dinklage will play Van Helsing and Jason Momoa will play a vampire in an upcoming movie, 'Good Bad & Undead.' Together they'll scam towns as Van Helsing pretends to slay the vampire for money.

Is this a remake of Dragonheart?

I was wondering when they'd announce the Game of Thrones spin-off. Sounds better than the last season!
 
I thought the same, but in that movie they were complete fakes who had no idea real monsters existed.
I'm fine with the premise for the most part. I am just trying to figure out why it has to be about Van Helsing? Couldn't Dinklage just play a generic vampire hunter?

I mean, not to be the guy who exacerbates the woes of aging actresses in the movies... but Lilith is supposed to be in her 20s... I mean, are they going to cast Ian McKellan as Mordecai?

Anyway Eli Roth is not a particularly good filmmaker. The only thing he's really made of note is the Hostel series of torture porn me-toos that road Saw's coattails.

TBH, I had the same reaction to the casting. Cate's ridiculously talented, but Lilith? Then again, we were just watching Order of the Phoenix the other day, and all the Marauders/Snape are 10-26 years older than their characters, so who knows. On the other hand, this could mean Bruce Campbell isn't too old to be Handsome Jack!

Cate is frickin' amazing and will likely elevate what will otherwise be a so so video game adaptation.

I'm assuming the casting means that the movie will not be about the first game, thus she can be any damn age they care to make her. She's probably going to be Commander Lilith, and not Vault Hunter Lilith.
 
Lilith - Anne Dudek
Brick - Dwayne Johnson
Mordecai - Sam Rockwell
Roland - John Boyega
Angel - Rosa Salazar
Claptrap - Tom Kenny
Marcus - Simon Pegg
TK Baka - Matt Frewer
Mad Moxxi - Kaley Cuoco
Dr. Zed - Bruce Campbell

Special guest stars: Clancy Brown as General Knoxx, Peter Dinklage as King Wee Wee, and Jack Black as Nine Toes.

It'll be the adventure comedy of the year!

Nope, I haven't, but I don't care about spoilers. Not that whatever happened in the games matters, since the movie isn't likely to share any plot with the games.

Eh, I still don't want to post spoilers.

So, anyway, I'll just say that Borderlands: The Movie has (as far as I'm concerned) already been made in a way that is as good as it could possibly be, and it was called Trigun: Badlands Rumble. It even has Colleen Clinkenbeard in it!
 
Would you like to own a piece of movie history? Like the actual miniature of the Nostromo? Or maybe Ron Burgundy's actual suit? Or Ash’s Boomstick?

Well now you can.
