There’s not just a Tetris movie coming but rather a trilogy!

May 17th, 2016 by Shane Michael Comments


There’s going to be a Tetris movie??? You may be asking yourself this but the project was announced first last year and now today, Threshold Entertainment has said that their film adaptation of the classic puzzle game Tetris is moving forward, and will actually serve as the first installment in a planned trilogy.

Speaking to news site Deadline, the movie is “billed as a sci-fi thriller”. Producer Larry Kasanoff added that it is “not at all what you think,” but will instead “be a cool surprise.”

The film will be a collaboration between China and the US with United States raising $80 million for the project under Kasanoff and Bruno Wu’s new company Threshold Global Studios. Filming will commence next year in China, as well as other locations, and will feature a predominantly Chinese cast.

What would you like to see in a Tetris movie? Do you think it will be another videogame adaptation flop? Sound off in the comments!
