It’s official! We’re getting an ‘epic sci-fi’ Tetris movie

Here is a game that doesn’t need an introduction. Tetris, a very classic video game, is finally getting turned into a movie. Larry Kasanoff, who produced the Mortal Kombat films, is spearheading the film project with the Tetris Company. You’re probably thinking, how can they turn a game about blocks trying to fit in with each other into a feature length film? Well, by turning it into a sci-fi epic.

“Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world,” said Kasanoff. “What everyone doesn’t know yet is this epic sci-­‐fi story that we’re going to tell. That’s what’s really exciting.”

“What started as a simple, computer puzzle game 30 years ago, today is part of our global consciousness, connecting people of all ages and backgrounds and feeding our innate desire to create order out of chaos,” says Henk Rogers, Managing Director of The Tetris Company. “We look forward to partnering with Threshold Entertainment to re-imagine that common experience and bring a spectacular new Tetris universe to the big screen for the first time. In this new universe, as you’ll soon find out, there’s much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines.”

Some of you may think Hollywood is running out of ideas…maybe they are. This isn’t the first time we saw a film about a property that’s very basic. We’ve already had a Battleship film, and we’ll also be getting the upcoming Ouija film based on the spooky board game.

The film will be produced by Threshold Chairman Larry Kasanoff and executive produced by Threshold’s Jimmy Ienner and The Tetris Company.

Tetris is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
