If you've ever played classic video game "Tetris" and thought, This would make a great movie!, you're in luck: The Gameboy staple will be getting the big screen treatment.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Tetris Company is partnering with Threshold Entertainment to turn the falling blocks game into a live-action film, which filmmakers are already touting as a win.
"It's a very big, epic sci-fi movie," Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff told WSJ. "This isn't a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We're not giving feet to the geometric shapes."
While a story is already in the works, no director or cast members have been selected yet. But Kasanoff and co. have big plans for the project, which the exec described as "location-based entertainment based on the epicness." Whatever that means.
"Brands are the new stars of Hollywood," Kasanoff added in his interview with WSJ. "We have a story behind 'Tetris' which makes it a much more imaginative thing."
Stay tuned to see if this project makes it to the next level.
