Borderlands Web Series in Development
Here's an interesting little tidbit that's begun floating around the Dread Central offices. Machinima, the fine folks who brought us Mortal Kombat: Legacy, are in the midst of cooking up a web series based on the popular Borderlands video game.
From what we hear, the series is based on the world presented in Borderlands 2. We also hear that one of the game's most notorious characters, Handsome Jack, has already been cast and will be played by Joel Hebner (pictured; Frankenstein Reborn, Automaton Transfusion).
Again, this is just something that's been brought to our attention, and we'll file it under rumor for now. If it does come to fruition, though, you read it here first!
Borderlands 2 is set five years after the events of Borderlands and tells the tale of four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Mordecai, and Brick, who are guided by a mysterious entity known as "The Guardian Angel" to the Vault, where they confront an alien abomination known as "The Destroyer." After defeating The Destroyer, a valuable mineral called "Eridium" started flourishing through Pandora's crust. Handsome Jack, a member of the Hyperion Corporation, secures this new resource and makes use of it to take over the corporation. Now, Handsome Jack rules over the inhabitants of Pandora with an iron fist from his massive satellite built in the shape of an "H," always visible in the sky in front of Pandora's moon. Meanwhile, rumors of an even larger Vault hidden on Pandora spread across the universe, drawing a new group of Vault Hunters to the planet in search for it.
