According to Threshold’s CEO Larry Kasanoff a film adaptation of the classic ’80’s video game is in the works. Threshold Entertainment has teamed up with the Tetris Company to create a live-action film based on the game. While there is a story in place, no directors or cast are attached to the film yet.
According to Threshold’s CEO:
“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. Brands are the new stars of Hollywood. We have a story behind ‘Tetris’ which makes it a much more imaginative thing. We certainly have the canvas for location-based entertainment based on the epicness. What you [will] see in ‘Tetris’ is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance.”
I, for one, cannot phantom what a tetris movie cold possibly be about but I will be watching it out of sheer curiosity. What are your thoughts? Is this a poor attempt to milk an existing franchise?
