Did you ever think you needed a movie about Tetris? Well, you’re getting it! According to Screen Rant, Taron Egerton has been brought in for a film about the “complicated history of Tetris”.
Tetris is a huge pop culture game, with more than 200 million copies sold. Having originally come out in 1984, during the boom of video games and computer technology; studies have shown how Tetris helps exercise the mind. Some of us may be too young to remember, but there was a real-life battle around Tetris – which will be explored in the film.
Egerton will play Dutch video game designer Henk Rogers. Rogers had secured the distribution rights for Tetris on video game consoles. He’s the founder of The Tetris Company. In the movie, the legal battles over the ownership for the game will be featured and explored. Jon S. Baird will direct and the movie plans on filming in September. With safety precautions, of course.
It’s a movie I never thought I needed. Then again, I’m not a fan of sports and some of the best movies, in my opinions; center around games I’d never sit down in person to spectate.
