Threshold Entertainment, a leading producer of live action and animated films, is partnering with The Tetris Company to develop a feature film inspired by the legendary video game, Tetris. The film will be produced by Threshold Chairman Larry Kasanoff and executive produced by Threshold’s Jimmy Lenner and The Tetris Company.
With a proven track record in game-‐to-‐movie adaptations, Threshold plans to turn the mega-‐hit Tetris franchise, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, into a science-‐fiction film. With two number-‐one Mortal Kombat films and a slew of related media, Threshold was the first company to produce a hit movie based on a video game.
“Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world,” said Kasanoff. “What everyone doesn’t know yet is this epic sci-‐fi story that we’re going to tell. That’s what’s really exciting.”
“What started as a simple, computer puzzle game 30 years ago, today is part of our global consciousness, connecting people of all ages and backgrounds and feeding our innate desire to create order out of chaos,” says Henk Rogers, Managing Director of The Tetris Company. “We look forward to partnering with Threshold Entertainment to re-imagine that common experience and bring a spectacular new Tetris universe to the big screen for the first time. In this new universe, as you’ll soon find out, there’s much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines.”
