Tetris, one of the most popular videogame franchises since the late 1980s created by Soviet game designer Alexey Pajitnov, will be coming to the big screen.
The Tetris Company and Threshold Entertainment will work together to produce a live-action film based on the videogame. According to Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy, said: “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.”
Threshold Entertainment is no stranger at making films based on videogames. The company brought the Mortal Kombat franchise to the cinemas in the mid 1990s.
