Ridley Scott's "Monopoly" Hires Writer

Posted: November 12th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ridley ScottSubmit Comment
The Hasbro/Universal "Monopoly" project has brought on Pamela Pettler to write the screenplay; She penned Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride," Gil Kenan's "Monster House" and the upcoming animated adventure "9."

Ridley Scott, who has been attached as a producer on "Monopoly" and has been mentioned as a possible director, is now officially attached to helm the project, with an eye toward giving it a futuristic sheen along the lines of his iconic "Blade Runner."

"Monopoly" marks the latest Hasbro property to head to the big screen. Board games and branded properties have become more attractive as studios look to mitigate risk by finding built-in audiences.

Universal is working with Hasbro on several projects as part of a long-term development deal. Platinum Dunes is producing its feature adaptation of "Ouija Board," while the maritime classic "Battleship" is also in development. Elsewhere at Hasbro, Paramount this summer is set to release Stephen Sommers' feature based on its "G.I. Joe" character. And "Trivial Pursuit: America Plays" is now airing as a syndicated television program.

Any ideas for what the story could be about?

An epic story of redemption following a man who goes to jail. He does not pass "Go". He does not collect $200.

So like the game- will it go on forever and have no ending due to the fact it's main characters get tired, go home, and fall asleep feeling like they wasted their entire evening?

I know Ridley Scott is a good director but, how can anyone make this work? I just don't see this. Clue was funny as hell, and if they try doing something like that, then yes perhaps it could be decent. But when has Ridley Scott made a comedy?
