Several title-based or industry-based projects are in development and one of the most raising expectations is the Tetris movie that will be run by Apple. Few are the details that are known about this production, but apparently it is going very well, since one of the protagonists and the director would have already been defined.

According to a Deadline report, Apple has just secured actor Taron David Egerton (Rocketman, Kingsman) and director Jon S. Baird (Stan & Ollie) to direct the direction of Tetris: The Movie. The actor would be responsible for impersonating the Dutch designer and businessman Henk Rogers, who was one of the main in charge of securing the rights to Tetris to distribute titles of the franchise on consoles.
