Apple TV+ has reportedly signed a new movie based on the game Tetris, with Taron Egerton set to star. The movie will also be directed by Jon S. Baird, according to Deadline.
While Apple TV+ hasn't yet announced the endeavor, Deadline seems pretty confident in its reporting of this "exclusive."
There's no telling when the movie will be ready to go, but a filming start date of December is reportedly set. Filming will take place in Scotland, according to Deadline.
This comes as Apple TV+ continues to pick up content as it expands beyond its first year in service. As seemingly out of left field this news might be, it does follow Apple's form of picking up movies right now – something that was borne out with the arrival of Tom Hank's Greyhound earlier this year.
