Apple Boards Taron Egerton-Starring ‘Tetris’ From ‘Stan & Ollie’ Director Jon S. Baird, ‘Rocketman’ Producer Matthew Vaughn

deadline.com – “Tetris: The Movie,” a film starring Taron Egerton about the making of the iconic block video game, has slotted in perfectly at Apple TV+, the studio announced Thursday.

Jon S. Baird (“Stan & Ollie”) is directing “Tetris: The Movie” about how the game found its popularity on consoles and the legal battles that a Dutch game entrepreneur, Henk Rogers as portrayed by Egerton, had to navigate to help the game find a foothold. Noah Pink (“Genius”) wrote the screenplay.

The film is being produced and financed by Matthew Vaughn’s Marv Films, with Leonard Blavatnik’s AI Film. Producers also include Gregor Cameron via his banner Unigram, which has tied up with AI Film (this is the first project from that pact), and Gillian Berrie. Screen Scotland helped bring the production to the country.

Marv, which recently hired former Lionsgate exec Zygi Kamasa as CEO, was behind Rocketman, landing Egerton a Golden Globe.
