The adaptation of the worldwide popular Tetris game, about which nothing has been known since mid-2014, has again come to the attention of the specialized media. According to ComicBook, the American studio Threshold Entertainment, which acquired the rights to shoot a movie based on the game, entered into a partnership agreement with Chinese partners.
The production budget is estimated at $ 80 million and will involve both Chinese and Western actors. The creators themselves describe their project exclusively as a "fantastic movie of epic proportions."
"Our team has been working with The Tetris Company for a year and after forming a joint studio Threshold Global Studios, received all the necessary funding, completed work on the script and is ready to start movieing," the partners said in a joint statement. Producer Larry Kasanoff is confident that Tetris is the perfect project for the studio's debut.
Filming is expected to start in early 2017 and will take place primarily in China. The plot of the picture at the time of this writing was not specified, it is also unknown when it will be presented to the audience. Recall that "Tetris" was created by the Soviet programmer Alexei Pajitnov in 1984.
