One loud, obnoxiously boisterous rhyming moniker deserves another, apparently.
Thusly, director Eli Roth has set Jack Black as the latest big name in his adaptation of Borderlands. Black will play Claptrap, the ever-present robot comic relief of the franchise. Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Kevin Hart are already signed on for what’s shaping up to be a Jumanji reunion with a far too respectable female presence.
In a statement, Roth said, “Claptrap is the funniest character in the game, and Jack is perfect to bring him to the big screen.”
Here’s a taste of what to expect from this “funniest character.” Get ready to laugh!
