Classic Eighties video game Tetris is being adapted into a big screen science fiction movie.

Threshold Entertainment has partnered with the Tetris Company to develop the live action film.

“It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie,” Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff told Speakeasy.

“This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.

“Brands are the new stars of Hollywood. We have a story behind Tetris which makes it a much more imaginative thing. We certainly have the canvas for location-based entertainment based on the epicness. What you [will] see in Tetris is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance."

Tetris has no confirmed director or release date at this early stage of the project.
