Mega entertainment company Threshold Entertainment has the green light from The Tetris Company to create a live-action Tetris movie. That alone is crazy. But Larry Kasanoff and Jimmy Ienner are planning on turning the puzzle game into a “sci-fi epic.” Yeah.
“Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world,” said Kasanoff. “What everyone doesn’t know yet isthis 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 andbackgrounds 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 newTetris 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 simplyclearing lines.”
This is going to be good.
