Tetris Movie Falls Into Place

Announced last year, it seems the film adaptation of the classic early video game “Tetris” is coming together quite smoothly at the newly formed Threshold Global Studios.

The project, now an $80 million China-U.S. co-production, has secured financing with plans to film the movie in China and other locations next year. The sci-fi thriller will boast a Chinese cast and is seen as the first part of a trilogy.

The 32-year-old game, about aligning falling bricks, has been downloaded over 500 million times as a mobile game. Bruno Wu and Larry Kasanoff will produce.
