Gameboy
 - 

This is about a movie that is, as they say, coming soon to a theater near you.

If that music doesn't provoke a Pavlovian response that sends you running for your old Game Boy, let us get to the point: There will be a Tetris movie.

The head of the company making the movie, Threshold Entertainment, also made the "Mortal Kombat" series.

But in case you're wondering how a game that's all about bricks will translate to the big screen, Henk Rogers, managing director of The Tetris Companysays: "There's much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines." The Tetris Company owns the rights to the game that debuted three decades ago.

"We have a story behind Tetris," Threshold's Larry Kasanoff promises, adding it'll be "a very big, epic sci-fi movie."

About bricks.
