After its initial announcement last year, Tetris The Movie is finally beginning to take shape.
The project is shaping up as an $80 million co-production between Chin and the U.S under Threshold Global Studios.
The result of a joint venture between Larry Kasanoff’s Threshold Entertainment Group and Bruno Wu’s Seven Star Works, Threshold Global Studios will develop and finance film projects for the global market with the Chinese release of Tetris The Movie as its first undertaking.
The team has been working with The Tetris Company for over a year and with the formation of Threshold Global Studios, financing is, reportedly, secured.
The company plans to begin filming in China, among other locations, in 2017, with a Chinese ensemble cast.
The film is billed as a sci-fi thriller and Kasanoff, speaking to Deadline, described the film as a “cool surprise”.
Wu and Kasanoff will co-produce, with Threshold’s Jimmy Ienner executive producing in partnership with The Tetris Company and Seven Stars.
