Tetris set the bar for simple, addictive games
A movie based on the greatest time-suck of all time – Tetris – is in the works, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Threshold Entertainment – which is probably best known for its Lego-based animations – has struck an agreement with the Tetris Company to create a film that somehow incorporates the falling shapes first imagined by Alexey Pajitnov 30 years ago.
As strange a proposition as that may seem, the company’s CEO Larry Kasanoff does have some experience in the world of blockbuster films – he was an executive producer of True Lives and (sticking to the gaming theme) also produced the 1995 adaptation of Mortal Kombat.
A plot has been devised for the film, though no details are known at present – casting and release details are also still unknown.
