When the Tetris movie was announced two years ago, gamers weren’t sure what to think. How could a puzzle game about falling blocks possibly be adapted into film — let alone a compelling one? Well, things just got a lot weirder: producer Larry Kasanoff revealed to Empire that the film is to be the first of a trilogy.
A trilogy of Tetris movies? How is that possible? Kasanoff wouldn’t let any plot details slip, as he wants the movie to be a surprise. But the reason why is surprisingly simple: the story the filmmakers conceived is so big that it can’t fit into one film.
How that’ll apply to Tetris is anyone’s guess, but Kasanoff did confirm one thing: it won’t revolve around walking Tetris blocks. In one of his Empire comments, he stated:
“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!”
Aside from a sci-fi focus, the rest of the film’s story remains a mystery, as does everything else about it. While casting is currently underway, filming is set to start next year, and a release date hasn’t yet been decided.
