Adapting video games into feature films has been a tricky thing for many film makers over the past few years but making a film about Tetris is head scratching; just how can a movie with falling blocks work. Apparently provides enough material to make a movie trilogy out of.
Larry Kasanoff, who’s working to bring Tetris to theaters, spoke about the decision to create three movies with Empire. He stated that it was needed “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 is famously known for such ‘masterpieces’ like Foodfight but he did make the enjoyable Mortal Kombat movies in the 90’s. He also said some more comments about this big project his team is working on.
“We want the story to be a surprise, but it’s a big science-fiction movie. I came up with the idea as I was thinking about Tetris and the theme of creating order out of chaos.
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!
I guarantee you it’s not what you think. No-one has come remotely close to figuring out what we’re doing.”
