Mortal Kombat movie company making Tetris film

Hope everything falls into place.

Threshold Entertainment, the company behind the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie and its sequel, is making a film based on Tetris.

The production studio today announced its plan to bring the falling block puzzler to the big screen, in partnership with the official Tetris Company.

"Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world," Threshold boss Larry Kasanoff explained.

"What everyone doesn't know yet is this epic sci-fi story that we're going to tell. That's what's really exciting."

Exactly what the film's story will be isn't clear, and there's no word yet on actors, a writer or director.

There's no word either on when the film may enter production, although the Tetris Company hinted that we may hear more soon.

"We look forward to partnering with Threshold Entertainment to re-imagine that common experience and bring a spectacular new Tetris universe to the big screen for the first time," Tetris boss Henk Rogers concluded.

"In this new universe, as you'll soon find out, there's much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines."
