The cast of the upcoming Borderlands movie just got a tiny bit bigger: Avengers: Infinity War's Ariana Greenblatt is set to join as the character Tiny Tina, according to The Hollywood Reporter--and confirmed by Gearbox via Twitter. Already, director Eli Roth has enlisted an impressive stable of actors to fill out his Borderlands world, including Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland, Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis, and Jack Black lending his voice to Claptrap.

The actress played the role of Young Gamore in flashbacks of the MCU movie and has also appeared in Love and Monsters and will feature in the upcoming In The Heights. In a statement, Roth said, "Ariana is a spectacular new talent in cinema. She has already worked with many of my close collaborators and everyone raves about her. 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’s going to blow up on screen like one of Tina's grenades."

Tiny Tina first appeared in Borderlands 2 as an NPC and also popped up in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 3. In the games, she's voiced by Ashly Burch (Mythic Quest) and is a teenage demolitions expert, which should provide for some very entertaining on-screen moments.

While there is still no release date for the Borderlands movie, which has been in the works for years, the steady stream of casting announcements certainly points to the likelihood that production will begin sometime soon. Meanwhile, the Borderlands 3 video game is gearing up to launch its Designer's Cup update this month, which will include a new raid.
