Actor Taron Egerton will be the video game designer Henk Rogers, the creator of Tetris, in the upcoming video game movie.
Taron Egerton seems to have taken a liking to this from biopics. After wiping out his fantastic performance and letting his vocal cords play Elton John in the remarkable biopic ‘Rocketman,’ the Brit will return to the fray in a new live-action feature film titled ‘Tetris. ‘
Taron Egerton will be the protagonist of the Tetris movie. During his career, Egerton has played other real-life characters such as Elton John in Rocketman and Michael Edwards in Eddie the Eagle, and now, he will play Henk Rogers.
In ‘Tetris,’ Egerton will play Henk Rogers, the Dutch-based, Hawaii-based video game industry entrepreneur who ended up winning the rights to the software for himself and for Pajitnov after several fights with Robert and Kevin Maxwell of the Mirrorsoft company.
The film will not narrate the game or its world, but the legal battle that took place in the late eighties for their rights. It makes sense, and it really is very interesting and can result in something similar to The Social Network, the fantastic movie by David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin.
The film, which will be directed by Jon S. Baird – ‘The Fat and the Skinny’ – is currently in pre-production and should start shooting throughout the month of September if the coronavirus pandemic does not prevent it. Of course, there is not yet an estimated release date, but there is no doubt that I will closely follow the project because it looks very interesting.
