TETRIS Movie In Development

TETRIS Movie In Development

According to The Wall Street Journal, the classic 1980s video game Tetris in getting the feature film treatment. Wait.. what? how will this be a movie! what will be the story?

The film is being produced by Threshold Entertainment and the Tetris Company, but as of this moment there are no directors or cast attached to the film. There is a story in place though! Threshold’s CEO Larry Kasanoff had this to say in a statement:

“It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie. This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes… Brands are the new stars of Hollywood. We have a story behind Tetris which makes it a much more imaginative thing.”

To give you an idea of what we can expect, Kasanoff is the same guy who adapted the Mortal Kombat movies for the big screen. He goes on to explain that they aren’t looking to limit the world of Tetris just to the big screen:

“We certainly have the canvas for location-based entertainment based on the epicness.”

There are no other details on what he means by that, but I imagine it will be expended into several other forms of entertainment content. He concludes by saying:

“What you [will] see in Tetris is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance.”

My curiosity is definitely sparked for this movie. I figured the story would just end up being about two moving guys trying to figure out the best way to fill up a moving van with the stuff in a house they are packing up.
