I’ve always been fascinated by Tetris. The people who are good at it, are amazing at it. Fingers moving at lightning fast speeds to make bricks fall exactly where they want them, and clearing those lines. It’s a very thrilling game, especially as you get the bricks right towards the top. But a thrilling movie? Apparently someone thinks so, as the film version of Tetris is moving forward with production beginning in 2017 in China for a 2018 release.
