Taron Egerton is going to be a very different role from the one he had in the franchise Kingsman. He will be Henk Rogers, a designer at the heart of the saga Tetris.
The actor Taron Egerton has revealed to the public eye with his role in the saga Kingsman. The young british actor embodies the character of Garry “Eggsy” Unwin, a protégé of Colin Firth. A role has opened the doors of several other films such as Memories of Youth and Billionnaire Boys Club. If the third episode of Kingsman would be already written, it should participate and take the opportunity to turn this page of his career. He seems to want to expand his repertoire, as allows to understand its new role in the film Tetris.
Taron Egerton takes the leap
It is a role that falls a little in his work on the biopic Rocketman, which earned him a Golden Globe for his incarnation of the artist Elton John. This time, it’s another biopic, but very far from the musical universe. In fact, he has been chosen to play in Tetris, a film that will examine the troubled history of the popular video game, its developers and personalities that are connected to it.
His role will be that of Henk Rogers, an entrepreneur and video game developer in the netherlands who has notably produced the first japanese RPG, The Black Onyx. It is also him who has acquired the rights to Tetris for Nintendo. He then co-founded the Tetris Company, which holds even today, the license. The film is directed by Jon S. Baird (director of Stan & Ollie) will focus on the issues of intellectual property in an atmosphere of the cold war.
If the game Tetris is now one of the great classics of the video game, its story begins in the USSR, but it poses some challenges, including addiction and pace of work. Its recovery by Henk Rogers and his adaptation to the Game Boy in will then become a worldwide success. The filming is expected to begin in September.
