The upcoming Lionsgate adaptation of Borderlands has cast Jack Black as the voice of Claptrap, the lovable yellow robot companion.
Jack Black has joined the cast of Lionsgate’s Borderlands adaptation as the companion robot of the Claptrap team.
“I’m very excited to meet Jack, this time in the recording booth,” said director Eli Roth. “Claptrap is the funniest character in the game and Jack is perfect for bringing him to the big screen.”
Voiced by David Eddings and Jim Foronda in video games, Claptrap is a little yellow robot with a big personality, who is considered by many to be the unofficial mascot of the franchise. The character was an NPC in Borderlands 1-3 but the players had a chance to control it in The pre-sequel.
“We couldn’t have been more in sync with our filmmakers and casting executives as we approached this role,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President Nathan Kahane. “Everyone who has played the game knows that Jack is perfect for this role. We are delighted that he will add his endless comic energy and voice to our film, he will bring so much to the film.”
the Borderlands The film is expected to be a flexible adaptation of the Gearbox Software, Telltale Games and 2K Games franchise, constituting a set of first-person shooter games set on the planet Pandora. After being devastated and abandoned by larger corporations in search of treasures, the abandoned workforce takes over the planet and turns it into a lawless land. However, after the discovery of mystical vaults, the corporations return to the planet to loot its wealth.
Directed by Eli Roth, Borderlands starring Kevin Hart, Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jack Black. The film has yet to receive a release date.
