While there may be some truth to the old adage that in Hollywood no one knows anything, people in Hollywood do know a few things, namely that the animated feature Foodfight! is an epic work of genius and the film’s director Larry Kasanoff is a hot commodity.
Yesterday Kasanoff’s company Threshold Animation Studios announced that he’s partnered with the Tetris Company (did you even know there was a Tetris Company?) to develop a movie based on Tetris. Now you might ask, isn’t that just a bunch of falling squares? Not to cinematic visionary Kasanoff. “Brands are the new stars of Hollywood,” Kasanoff told the Wall Street Journal. No director or cast has been announced, but Kasanoff announced that he already has a story “which makes it a much more imaginative thing.”
