Florian Monteneau, the actor who will bring Craig to life in Borderlands, has spoken about how his version of the character would be different from what fans know from video games.
Munteanu spoke as a splash screen On his approach to Krieg, he revealed that fans shouldn’t expect an image quite like video games, although I think they’ll enjoy his interpretation.
“I mean Craig is one of the fan favorites and I feel like what the fans saw in the game, or what they used to see in the game, they couldn’t expect exactly the same,” Monteneau explained. “I’m going to bring my fighting style to the table as well as a humorous way of playing the character. I think people will love it. But we’ll have to wait until next year for that.”
Krieg is one of six playable characters from Borderlands 2, and his story has been explored in depth in the DLC released for the third game. Craig is the son of a family of bandits, who was abused during his childhood for being weaker than the rest of the family. This encourages him to get stronger, but it wasn’t until Dr. Benedict captured him and went through a series of trials that he became the mad character in Borderlands 2.
The experiences he underwent led to him entering into psychosis, becoming a sort of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. His rational and rational personality is trapped inside his mind, while Psycho’s crazy and mad personality has taken over his body. In games, Krieg is known for his barrage of nonsense and nonsensical insults. Roth admitted that Craig was the biggest challenge when it came to choosing:
“Florian brings true humanity and multiple layers to a character that on the surface seems totally crazy and brutal. Krieg was by far the toughest role to cast, and Florian brought it to life and realism in a way I thought possible. Krieg would be brilliant and would fit right in with our amazing cast.” “
Munteanu is just one of the stars of Borderlands: The Movie, set to premiere in 2022, alongside Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jack Black, Gina Gershon and Janina Gavankar, Kevin Hart Ariana Greenblatt.
