‘Tetris’ Movie Will Be a Sci-Fi Trilogy

All good things come in threes, right? That’s certainly what producer Larry Kasanoff is banking on with his latest video game adaptation, “Tetris.”

Kasanoff told Empire Magazine that the film will be a trilogy.

“That’s correct,” he responded when asked if rumors of the adaption receiving three installments were true. But, he said, that’s “purely because the story we conceived is so big.”

“This isn’t us splitting the last one of our eight movies in two to wring blood out of the stone. It’s just a big story,” Kasanoff said.

Kasanoff first announced the movie almost two years ago. The film — a China-U.S. co-production — secured $80 million in funding last month.

“We want the story to be a surprise, but it’s a big science-fiction movie,” Kasanoff said of the untitled film. “I came up with the idea as I was thinking about ‘Tetris’ and the theme of creating order out of chaos.”

He also added “we’re not going to have blocks with feet running around the movie, but it’s great that people think so. It sets the bar rather low!”

“Tetris” is set to begin shooting in China next year. It will be one of the first pics from Threshold Global Studios, a new company involving Kasanoff’s Threshold Entertainment and Chinese businessman Bruno Wu’s Seven Stars Entertainment.
