Ridley Scott To Direct ‘Monopoly’ Movie
The Movie God   |  @   |  

MonopolyIn one very interesting bit o’ news, it has been officially announced that Ridley Scott will direct a movie for Universal Pictures based on the board game Monopoly.

The script is written by Pamela Pettler, who also wrote Monster House and Corpse Bride. Along with Ridley Scott, Hasbro’s Brian Goldner will produce.

No word yet on the plot or who, if anyone, will play the iconic white-mustached man. My guess is that it won’t really look like Monopoly at all, which is why this project is hard to imagine. Best bet is that you’ll have a created story based in the world of real estate investments, maybe with mention of Park Place once or twice. Either that, or the city of Monopoly will be attacked by a gigantic metal doggy. Cloverfield style.

This is one of multiple games being turned into movies by Universal in their deal with Hasbro. Also on the list is Ouija and Battleship.

Should be very interesting to see how this one plays out.

  • Uh, this is a joke, right? Either that or it’s one helluva McDonald’s merchandising tie-in.

  • JoJo

    They made a “clue” movie a long time ago. LoL I like the giant metal dog idea.

  • Okay, I’m dying laughing here. This is the most retarded thing I’ve heard of in a long time. Clue I get. It was a decent movie, and it actually had room for a plot. Monopoly, Ouija, and Battleship though? Um.. that’s pretty out there. :P
