Tetris movie coming to big screen from Mortal Kombat movie studio


Threshold Entertainment and the Tetris Company move to make a movie based off the classic puzzle game.

It's Tetris' 30th anniversary this year, and what better way to celebrate than by creating a movie of the game. Threshold Entertainment will be working with the Tetris Company to create a live-action movie that's based on the game.

The Wall Street Journal reports that whilst there's no cast or directors associated with the movie just yet, there is a story.

Threshold's CEO Larry Kasanoff told the WSJ '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.'

Kasanoff is probably best known for working on the Mortal Kombat movie from 1995, and it's sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997, both of which hold a very special place in my heart.

How they'll transport the blocks and lines of Tetris to the big screen is anyone's guess, but Kasanoff did say 'what you [will] see in ‘Tetris’ is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance.'
