‘Tetris The Movie’ Will Be A Sci-Fi Thriller?!

by Red Zeppelbon on May 17th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,


There’s another video game movie that’s been in the works since it was announced last year, but I’m not exactly sure how they’re going to make a movie out of this one. ‘Tetris The Movie‘ will be an $80 million co-production between China and the US under Threshold Global Studios, a shingle just formed by Bruno Wu and producer Larry Kasanoff and Tetris will be the first product of the partnership.¬†After a year of setting up shop, Threshold has financing completely secured for Tetris.

We’ve seen other game adaptations lately, ‘The Angry Birds Movie‘ and ‘Warcraft‘, but there a storyline is already established. Tetris didn’t exactly come with a character roster or story. The plan is to create a sci-fi thriller with a Chinese ensemble cast that will film next year. Another thing I didn’t expect for this is that this will be the opening salvo for a planned trilogy.


They couldn’t have picked a more popular game to pull into a movie module, the title is 32 years old and you couldn’t find a teenager in the 1980’s who didn’t kill hours on end with that game. Even today, it’s been downloaded more than 500 million times as a mobile game. I’m more than just a little curious to find out how they’re going to take Tetris and turn it into a sci-fi thriller!

Movie Quotes

Although an inferior race, the Persians control at least four fifths of the known world. But, is it possible that the source of Egypt's mighty river Nile could rise in these distant mountains of the outer Earth? If so, an experienced navigator could find his way here, by this river, east, down into the great plains of India, out into the eastern ocean and end of the world, and by this route, up the Nile, back to Egypt, into the Middle Sea and home to Greece.
