‘Borderlands’ Casts Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina

She starred in "Love and Monsters," "The One and Only Ivan," and had a voice role in "Scoob." She previously starred in the Disney Channel series “Stuck in the Middle” and appeared in Marvel’s "Avengers: Infinity War" and "A Bad Moms Christmas." Her upcoming credits include starring opposite Gina Rodriguez in Netflix’s "Awake," as well as a supporting role in the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical "In the Heights." She won the Tiny Tina part after a worldwide search. Greenblatt has already racked up some impressive credits despite her relative youth.
Roth's credits include "Hostel" and "Cabin Fever."

She blew us all away in her audition, and I cannot wait to see her bring the wild, insane and unpredictable Tiny Tina to the big screen. "She has already worked with many of my close collaborators and everyone raves about her. "Ariana is a spectacular new talent in cinema," Roth said. She’s going to blow up on screen like one of Tina’s grenades."
Tannis and Jack Black as Claptrap. Ariana Greenblatt will play Tiny Tina, the teenage explosives expert, in Eli Roth’s adaptation of the video game phenomenon "Borderlands." She joins a cast of heavyhitters and A-listers that includes Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland, Jamie Lee Curtis as Dr.
James Myers and Aaron Edmonds are overseeing the project on behalf of Lionsgate. Lucy Kitada and Royce Reeves-Darby are overseeing the project for Picturestart. Emmy Yu is overseeing the film for Arad Productions. Avi Arad and Ari Arad are producing through their Arad Productions banner, with Erik Feig also producing through Picturestart. The latest draft of "Borderlands" is by the two-time Emmy-winning screenwriter Craig Mazin ("Chernobyl").
But there's a reason that “Borderlands” is hotly anticipated. It's one of the world’s most successful video game franchises, with more than 68 million units sold worldwide, including over 24 million units of “Borderlands 2” and 12 million units sold for "Borderlands 3.” The history of movie versions of video games can be a bit spotty — "Sonic the Hedgehog" was a hit, as was "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," but there are also lots of duds in the "Super Mario Brothers" and "Assassins Creed" vein.
