‘Borderlands’ Film Recruits Kevin Hart as Action Hero Roland – Does This Signal a New Direction for His Career?

And it’d be great if it was written by the person who wrote Superhero Movie.” If you recall ever meeting such a dorm room Nostradamus, it might be smart to call him up and ask for suggestions for lotto numbers ...
