"Monopoly" Movie Hires "The Truman Show" Writer

"Monopoly" Movie Hires "The Truman Show" WriterSubmit Comment
A while ago, Ridley Scott was developing a big screen version of the "Monopoly" board game. Apparently that project fell apart, but now comes word that Lionsgate has teamed with Hasbro to give the property another shot.

Lionsgate will finance the film and has hired Andrew Niccol (The Truman Show, Gattaca, The Terminal) to write the script. "Monopoly" is being envisioned as a family-friendly tentpole. The story centers on a boy from Baltic Avenue who uses both Chance and Community in a quest to make his fortune, taking him on an adventure-filled journey. It's about making your own luck, what makes you truly rich and avoiding jail time.

Monopoly has been played by more than 1 billion people in 114 countries and has been translated into 47 different languages, according to Hasbro.

Just love this place. Such great content, such great comments. Bestest movie news site on the entire Internet.

So basically make a move that's only tangentially related to the game, license the name, and collect $200 million.

God, I so need to get into this racket.

Well, if anyone can do something proper with this property, it would be the guy who wrote The Truman Show. Not a bad choice if you want a respectable movie made from a timeless classic board game....

So basically this will be just as good as Battleship right? Because we all know such titles were better as games, NOT films. But let them go ahead with it, not like I'd ever watch it
