Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

In July 2020, it was reported that a biopic was being made about the making of Tetris, which will delve into the legal battles that took place during the Cold War over ownership of the game, with Jon S. Baird directing and Taron Egerton cast to portray the game publisher Henk Rogers.[1] Egerton confirmed this report in an August interview, explaining that the film would mirror a tone similar to The Social Network.[2] In November, Apple TV+ acquired the film.[3]

Filming began in Glasgow in December 2020, including Glasgow Prestwick Airport on the Ayrshire coast.[4] In February 2021, filming took place in Aberdeen at locations including the University of Aberdeen's Zoology Building, which was used as the headquarters of Soviet firm Elorg.[5] Production then returned to Glasgow for a few days, before wrapping in early March 2021.[6][7] Reshoots took place in 2022, and said the film's release was planned for later in the year.[8] Baird has confirmed the film's release for March 2023.[9]
