Tetris, the classic video game that involves slotting shaped blocks together, is to be turned into a movie.
Tetris was created by Alexey Pajitnov in 1984 and is now played online more than a billion times a year.
The game will provide the inspiration for an “epic sci-fi story”, according to film company Threshold Entertainment.
The company adapted the game Mortal Kombat into a movie in 1995.
The simple but addictive Tetris is not an obvious choice for the big screen treatment – though that did not stop Lego making a movie this year.
