Brett Ratner‘s company is set to produce an “untitled Tetris project” according to The Tracking Board. The film is rumoured to be a biopic of Tetris designer Russian Alexey Pajitnov. Pajitnov developed Tetris in 1984 in the communist-run USSR. The origin story of the globally successful game will be similar to the Facebook film The Social Network.
Ratner’s company RatPac has been involved in the production of Horrible Bosses 2 and Entourage amongst others. Last year there was an announcement of an epic sci-fi big screen take on Tetris by film company Threshold Entertainment. There has been no further announcement since and the untitled Ratner produced biopic is completely separate.
