Tetris story is so big it needs three movies, says producer
The story of Tetris is so complex that it will require three movies, producer Larry Kasanoff has explained.
Asked by Empire if earlier talk about a planned trilogy was accurate, Kasanoff said "that's correct", noting that it's "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".
Exactly what the story is remains to be seen, but don't expect to see blocks coming to life.
"We're not going to have blocks with feet running around the movie," said Kasanoff, "but it's great that people think so. It sets the bar rather low!"
"We want the story to be a surprise, but it's a big science-fiction movie," he confirmed. "I came up with the idea as I was thinking about Tetris and the theme of creating order out of chaos."
"No-one has come remotely close to figuring out what we're doing," he added.
Shooting is set to begin with a Chinese cast next year, with an $80 million production budget reported.
