There is a Tetris sci-fi movie in the works 2

With all the movie adaptations of video games that have popped up over the years, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to turn Tetris into a movie.
With all the movie adaptations of video games that have popped up over the years, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to turn Tetris into a movie. Movie studio Threshold Entertainment has grabbed the rights to create a Tetris live-action film, according to the Wall Street Journal, and plans to turn it into a sci-fi epic. Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff was the guy who made the Mortal Kombat movie happen, and he's hoping the Tetris brand will sell the movie. "This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page," he said. "We're not giving feet to the geometric shapes.... We have a story behind Tetris which makes it a much more imaginative thing." There isn't yet a director or a cast in place, but the story is apparently written up. "What you [will] see in Tetris is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance,” Kasanoff added.
