A Live-Action Sci-Fi Tetris Movie Is In The Works


Threshold Entertainment are collaborating with the Tetris Company to produce a live-action sci-fi Tetris movie, the two announced today.


Threshold, as you may recall, produced the 1995 Mortal Kombat live-action film, as well as its sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and prequel, the Mortal Kombat: Conquest TV series.


The Tetris film will be produced by Threshold Chairman Larry Kasanoff, with Threshold’s Jimmy Ienner and the Tetris Company acting as executive producers.


“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,” said 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.”
