Threshold Entertainment has secured $80 million in funding for a planned live-action film adaptation of Tetris.
The team has been working with The Tetris Company for over a year. Larry Kasanoff, who produced the Mortal Kombat movie, will produce this project and is said to be in Cannes in search of international sales partners.
The sci-fi thriller, according to Kasanoff, is "not at all what you think; it will be a cool surprise." It’s said that this will be the first of a trilogy.
The Tetris movie will start filming next year in China and other locations, and will feature a Chinese cast.
