Tetris - The Movie Is Coming!
Producers promise a sci-fi epic as plans to take the hit video game to the big screen are announced...
Can you fit this one in?
As unbelievable as it sounds given the plot-less nature of the property, producers already have a story in mind, saying: "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."The adaptation of Tetris recalls Universal's mining of the 'Battleship' board game, which resulted in a devastating alien attack and disappointing box office results. A film version of Ouija is also in production.
The minds behind the Tetris movie promise that despite the inherent doubts, they'll deliver on a crowd-pleasing experience
"Brands are the new stars of Hollywood,” said producer Larry Kasanoff. "We have a story behind Tetris, which makes it a much more imaginative thing."
"What you (will) see in Tetris is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance," he added.
