Every once in a while, we briefly get moments where we do not have to remember that a movie based on the falling block game Tetris is in the works. This is not one of those moments.
The film is indeed coming thanks to Larry Kasanoff, who had some interesting things to say about the project in a talk with Empire Magazine. For starters, Tetris apparently has too much epic story to fit into just one film. Yep. The Tetris saga will have to be a trilogy:
“…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."
But never fear, he also claims the film won’t be about different shaped blocks shooting at each other in spaceships. Instead it’ll be about “creating order out of chaos”.
If you have any idea what that could possibly mean in the context of a narrative based on Tetris, by all means take a shot at explaining it in the comments.
Honestly, it’s easy to be cynical about a whole trilogy of films based on this property. In fact, it’s probably smart. But this guy has my curiosity. I am very eager to know what a Tetris trilogy would look like. That doesn’t mean I want to see the films, necessarily, but I would definitely hit play on a trailer, which is the most coveted goal of all movies.
