Ridley Scott Talks "Monopoly" Movie

Posted: March 2nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ridley Scott Talks "Monopoly" MovieSubmit Comment
Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner an director Ridley Scott (Gladiator) spoke to MTV News about the upcoming "Monopoly" movie, based on the popular board game.

"The whole world is about the financial markets," said Goldner. "You can't turn on the news today without understanding the financial markets and what's going on out there."

But even though the film will deal with the drama behind money and houses, there will still be a "personal story" that attracted Scott. "He's built these great big worlds of imagination," said Goldner about the director. "Combine that with Pamela Pettler who's writing this great script about real people kind of playing a real-life game of 'Monopoly,' not the board game, although they're icons of the game. And then you really get the idea why this story could make sense right now."

At this point Scott is hesitant to reveal specifics. "I have to direct it," he said. "We're in progress right now. We're having it written. We have identified a pretty good story and it is fundamentally a movie, not a game, probably describing in a way the characters in the film, the passion of the game, and how the game came about."

Is the industry really that desperate for new movie ideas? How about they make a movie about the rape of films when they're remade.

This...will...suck. The sad part will be when you go to the movie and there's no way to get frustrated and throw the board and pieces all over the room after 3 hours and your friend Rob has bought up all of Park Place...

Ooh I wonder who they'll cast as the dog and the top hat? I'm thinking Ian McKellen as the iron.
