Tetris never gets old as far as I’m concerned. Stacking the blocks of the ’80s game is satisfying and fun – so much so that it’s apparently headed to the big screen. Wait, what? The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports that Threshold Entertainment has joined forces with the Tetris Company to make a film based on the game. You’d assume they’re going animated, right? Nope, it’s live-action.
Threshold’s Larry Kasanoff told WSJ the following:
“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 has worked on the Mortal Kombat screen adaptation, so we’ll see what he can cook up. Pardon me if I don’t get terribly excited.
