Posted on  by admin

April 3 (UPI) --Knives Out star Jamie Lee Curtis offered on Instagram her idea of what members of the Thrombey family are doing since they won't be appearing in the planned sequels to the film.

'To clear up any rumors, the Thrombey family is in family counseling and the therapist suggested they stay away from Benoit Blanc in the future,' Curtis wrote Friday.

The Thrombey family won't appear in the 'Knives Out' sequels. Following the announcement that Netflix will finance two follow-up movies to the 2019 film, Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that her on-screen alter-ego Lynda Drysdale, the daughter of wealthy mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), and her extended family will not have a role in the upcoming movies. 'Knives Out' features an all-star cast of actors like Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans and Daniel Craig taking part in a twisty, turny whodunnit as a selection of big, bold characters.


'Linda was fine as she kicked her loafer wearing prick of a husband, sorry @donjohnson to the curb. The rest of them are hustling. Ransom is apparently in the knitting sweater business, a new skill he picked up in the slammer. Joni has some vaginal scented bath bomb, Walt is self publishing his memoir. NONE of us will be joining Mr. Blanc in Greece. As the family spokesperson we wish the filmmakers all our best in their new venture.'

With very, very few exceptions, film adaptations of video games have primarily operated somewhere in the “disappointing” to “embarrassing failure” range. But nobody tell Hostel and Cabin Fever director Eli Roth about that, because he’s putting together a cast for his film version of the bestselling video game Borderlands that appears to be punching way above its weight class. Horror film icon Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, Knives Out) is the latest addition to this hyper-talented cast, which also includes Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart. What a trio!


The original Borderlands video game, which was released in 2009, followed a group of “Vault Hunters” looking for an alien vault on the planet of Pandora. (Despite debuting in the same year, there’s no relation to the Pandora depicted in James Cameron’s Avatar). Set in the distant future, when mega-corporations seek control of planets to colonize and mine for their natural resources, the players are sent in to battle the local wildlife and bandit population as they fight to stop the head of a private corporation army from reaching the alien vault before they do. The game spawned three sequels – Borderlands 2 in 2012, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in 2014, and Borderlands 3 in 2019.

According to a press release, “Curtis will play Tannis, an archeologist on Pandora who might have the key to finding the vault, but whose complicated history with Lilith (Blanchett) isn’t going to help.”

“Working with the iconic Jamie Lee Curtis has been a life long dream of mine, and I am so excited for her to bring her humor, warmth and brilliance to the role of Tannis,” Roth said in a statement.

Tannis is a non-playable character who is much younger in the games, which is an interesting change the film appears to be making. The Borderlands wiki describes her as autistic, with some of her traits being “lack of empathy, echolalia, unusual vocal inflection, difficulty with social cues, and hyperfixation on her research and special interests.” In the game storyline, she suffered several psychotic breaks after most of her colleagues died on Pandora and even after her employer left the planet, she stayed behind because she became obsessed with finding the alien vault. Her loneliness led her to develop emotional attachments to inanimate objects, so maybe this will be Curtis’s opportunity to pull a “Tom Hanks in Castaway” and put her own twist on the Wilson volleyball dynamic.
