Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff describes the adaptation as a "very big, epic sci-fi movie".
"This isn't a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page" he continues. "We're not giving feet to the geometric shapes."
Kasanoff, who previously brought Mortal Kombat to cinemas, said that a successful movie could lead to other ventures.
"Brands are the new stars of Hollywood. We have a story behind Tetris which makes it a much more imaginative thing."
"What you [will] see in Tetris is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance," Kasanoff teased.
Packaged with the original Game Boy, Tetris celebrated its 30th anniversary in June.
