The Tetris movie is now inexplicably a trilogy

New, 20 comments

Until we see some convincing evidence otherwise, one Tetris movie is likely to be one too many for most. Somewhat unbelievably, however, there are now going to be three. Why? "Purely because the story we conceived is so big," producer Larry Kasanoff tells Empire. "This isn't us splitting the last one of our eight movies in two to wring blood out of the stone. It's just a big story."

As for what that story might entail or why it requires three movies to be told, Kasanoff isn't saying, beyond the encouraging fact that there aren't going to be "blocks with feet running around the movie." "We want the story to be a surprise, but it's a big science fiction movie," Kasanoff says. "I came up with the idea as I was thinking about Tetris and the theme of creating order out of chaos."

Sounds great, but I can't help thinking a trilogy isn't the best fit for the Tetris series, numerologically speaking. Maybe it'd be best if an extremely long fourth script came along, slotted itself next to the existing movies, and made the entire project disappear.
