“Tetris” Movie Gets $80 Million In Funding, Will Start Shooting In 2017

A film based on the classic Game Boy game Tetris will begin shooting in China next year, according to Deadline. A co-production between China and the U.S., the film will star both Chinese and Western actors.

Funding and a script are already in place for the film, which is reportedly planned as the first of a trilogy. Yes, a tetris trilogy. Not a tetralogy. That would mean four films about the blocky video game, even though that name sounds better.

The Tetris tetralogy!

The film is budgeted at $80 million, Deadline said, and will be the debut project from Threshold Global Studios.

Heading up the production are Bruno Wu, a Chinese billionaire and media giant, and American producer Larry Kasanoff. Kasanoff’s credits include a variety of Lego and Mortal Kombat projects for film and TV, like 1995’s Mortal Kombat movie.

In November, Wu that he had a project based on Tetris in pre-production, while Kasanoff announced plans to turn Tetris into an “epic sci-fi thriller” back in 2014.

Tetris first launched in Russia on Elektronica 60 in 1984. The game attained popularity when it was packed in with the Game Boy in 1989. The worldwide phenomenon is decidedly not sci-fi, but instead a simple (and addictive) puzzle game.
