The Borderlands Movie Adds Creed 2 Actor As Krieg

Florian Munteanu joins Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jack Black and Ariana Greenblatt in the upcoming Borderlands movie directed by Eli Roth. Munteanu is best known for starring as Viktor Drago (the son of Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago) in 2018’s Creed 2.

He will be playing the role of Krieg, one of the six playable characters from Borderlands 2 and part of the game’s Psycho class. Born to a family of bandits, Krieg endured abuse from his mother who viewed him as a weakling. Spurred by his mother to become stronger, Krieg grew to become one of the strongest members of his family on Pandora. However, his strength was no match for Hyperion’s forces when he and many other bandits were taken by Dr. Benedict as experiments to become Psychos subjected to horrible abuse and experiments with the lucky ones being the first to die as each surviving batch only endured even more inhumane experiments where traits like self-harm, suicidal impulses, and reckless behaviour were encouraged.

Rather than bringing out his psychotic side and destroying his sanity, it only made him feel more powerless. Eventually, a fractured remnant of his psyche, manifesting itself as an “inner voice” in his mind as a means for Krieg’s sane side to maintain hope and the will to survive. Learning that he was to be disposed of with the rest of the subjects and Dr. Benedict plans on using children as the next group, he breaks out of the facility and kills Benedict to prevent them from suffering the same fate. However, by that point, Psycho Krieg became the dominant personality and Krieg could no longer communicate properly.

Later on in his life, Krieg had engaged in vault hunter-esque activities and worked for the Crimson Raiders, such as aiding the needy and getting paid with loot. The voice also seeks to control Krieg’s lust for murder by limiting his victims to those deserving punishment. However, because of Psycho Krieg’s personality, he was unable to establish any meaningful bonds with the Raiders and believed they always hated him and saw him as a weapon towards their enemies.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Eli Roth said:

“Florian brings real humanity and multiple layers to a character who on the surface seems totally insane and brutally savage.

Krieg was by far the most difficult role to cast, and Florian brought him to life and grounded him in a way that I didn’t know was possible.

He’s going to be a brilliant Krieg and will fit in perfectly with our incredible cast.”

Borderlands developer Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford himself confirmed the news on Twitter.

Directed by Eli Roth, the Borderlands movie doesn’t have a release date yet but is slated to begin production soon in Hungary.
