We all love playing Tetris: The music, the the shapes, intense pressure! But could you imagine it ever giving way to a full blown motion picture? Well, you won’t have to imagine for much longer.according to Deadline, a full-length movie based on the classic Game Boy game Tetris will begin shooting in China next year. Believe it or not, the film is actually slated to be part of a trilogy and has an $80 million budget. Those are sure to be some really magnificent blocks.
Bruno Wu, a Chinese billionaire and media giant, and American producer Larry Kasanoff are spearheading the project. It will be a joint production of U.S. and Chinese studios which means it will feature both Chinese and Western actors. Can anyone else see Ryan Gosling in this?
Now even if the film ends up literally about putting blocks on top of each other at increasing rates, it will still probably be better than Pixels. And hey, if they can make a hit out of Angry Birds, they can do anything. After all, Tetris can entertain you for hours.
