Threshold Entertainment’s film adaptation of Nintendo’s Tetris is full-steam ahead, and it’s apparently going to be part of a trilogy.

Larry Kasanoff, producer of such films as “True Lies” and “Lego: The Adventures of Clutch Powers,” has teamed up with Chinese producer Bruno Wu to create a joint venture called Threshold Global Studios to develop and finance the film.—CNBC

How on earth are they going to make three Tetris films?  I get fed up with the game after about 9 minutes.  The movie will be shot in China and will feature a Chinese cast…or so we thought:

Tetris movie
