The pair said: ‘Borderland is a vengeance fueled chase movie, fusing some pulse ticking action with a powerful message for our times. 

‘We’re thrilled that the script, driven as much by character as it is by plot, has attracted such a first rate cast.’

Producer Chris Coen added: ‘It’s been a pleasure working with Rocket Science putting the film together and I couldn’t be more excited to get this prodigious project into production later this year. The Guard Brothers make for a terrific team who are assembling a formidable cast and crew.’
