You’d think that after Pixel’s dismal performance, movie companies would give a good, long, think before adapting some video games into movies. Yet in the same month, we’ve seen the reveal of not just one, but two movies based on video game properties that are almost guaranteed to fail.
Earlier this month, a Tetris movie with an $80 million dollar is apparently being produced by Threshold Global Studios, in partnership with American Mortal Kombat producer Larry Kasanoff. In what can only be an attempt to one-up Threshold Global, a movie based on the Fruit Ninja property is now underway. The movie is being produced by Vinson Films and written by J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani, who recently wrote How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack.
Sam White and Tara Farney are executive producers on the project. Currently there is no set release date for the new movie.
