It’s been awhile since we heard any news regarding the Tetris movie, but now Deadline is reporting that the film “is eyed as an $80 million China-U.S. co-production under Threshold Global Studios, a new banner formed by Bruno Wu and producer Larry Kasanoff.”
The report goes on to say that Threshold Global Studios has been in communication over the last year with The Tetris Company and plans to begin filming in next year in China with a Chinese cast.
And Just in case a Tetris movie was not odd enough, the report states that the film is going to be the first in a trilogy. Speaking with Deadline’s Nancy Tartaglione, Kasanoff said “it’s not at all what you think; it will be a cool surprise.”
The fact that the Tetris movie is actually moving forward is a pretty cool surprise in and of itself.
