A film adaptation of Tetris is stacking up at Threshold Entertainment.
The production company, which saw success in video game adaptation with Paul W.S. Anderson's Mortal Kombat film in 1995, is partnering with the Tetris Company to develop a film based on the classic game, in which players line up rows of interconnected blocks.
The film will adapt it into what the producers describe in a statement as an "epic sci-fi adventure."
"We look forward to partnering with Threshold Entertainment to reimagine that common experience [of playing Tetris] and bring a spectacular new Tetris universe to the big screen," Tetris Company managing director Henk Rogers said in the statement. "In this new universe, as you'll soon find out, there's much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines."
The Tetris movie is a nostalgic entry in a widening array of upcoming video game releases, including adaptations of Warcraft, with Duncan Jones directing, Splinter Cell from Doug Liman, Uncharted from Seth Gordon and Shadow of the Colossus from Andres Muschiett, all planned for release in the next two years.

I was a kid that blew all her laundry money on the Tetris machine in the dorm lobby back in college. It is one of only 3 games I have on my iPhone. I love me some Tetris. I will NEVER see a Tetris movie.
I don't care if Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jensen Ackles and Stephen Amell all co-star in it. Well, maybe then I would care - but the chances of that are pretty damned slim.
