The Borderlands movie you didn’t know about has a writer now

TODO alt text

Hot on the heels of Gearbox's Borderlands 3 sorta-announcement yesterday, Lionsgate has signed up comedian and writer Aaron Berg as screenwriter for the film of the game (via Variety). 

The film's coming from Arad Productions, which also has Metal Gear Solid and Uncharted movie's in the works. Aaron Berg, on the other hand, is a comedian who wrote Section 6, an upcoming spy flick about the birth of MI6 that ran into a little trouble when a Bond movie producer tried to shut it down. 

Berg’s skills might be unproven in a released film currently but Universal paid a lot of money for Section 6’s script, and fought for it in court against 007 attempts to close it down. Plus he’s been signed up for a GI Joe 3 script as well, so Hollywood clearly rate him. 

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us?
