Yes, a Tetris sci-fi movie is currently in production

No, really

Mega entertainment company Threshold Entertainment has the green light from The Tetris Company to create a live-action Tetris movie. That alone is crazy. But Larry Kasanoff and Jimmy Ienner are planning on turning the puzzle game into a “sci-fi epic.” Yeah.

“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.”

Dafuq.

“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.”

This is going to be good.
