Chinese and U.S. producers have announced an $80 million sci-fi thriller based on the block-busting computer game Tetris

 

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese and U.S. producers say they plan to make an $80 million live-action sci-fi thriller based on the popular 1980s building block computer game Tetris.

 

The movie will begin shooting next year.

 

It is the first project from the newly formed Threshold Global Studios, a joint venture between Chinese entertainment investor Bruno Wu's Seven Star Works and producer Larry Kasanoff's California-based Threshold Entertainment Group.

 

The pair said in a statement Tuesday that the joint venture "will make cross-cultural movies for the global market." Kasanoff added that the 32-year-old video game Tetris "is a perfect first project for this strategy."

 

The announcement said financing for the co-production is complete. There are plans to film the movie in China and it will feature Chinese actors.
