Monopoly Movie Takes Board Games to Big Screen

Ridley Scott, acclaimed director of classic films like “Blade Runner”, is taking on a decidedly different project: producing (and possibly directing) a movie based on the Monopoly board game.

Ridley Scott will direct “Monopoly,” based on the Parker Bros. board game, for Universal.

Screenwriter on the project is Pamela Pettler (“Corpse Bride,” “Monster House”).

From The Hollywood Reporter:

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.”

As Alex Balk asks, Do Top Hats Dream Of Electric Trains?

Imagine the finished film, replete with a penultimate impassioned monologue, as follows:

PENNYBAGS: [Slowly, deliberately] I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Boots mortgaging property to tiny dogs. Apartments torched on Baltic Avenue just for the insurance money. I watched someone roll triple sixes and land on Free Parking where a Get Out Of Jail Free card had been tossed into the kitty. All those moments will be lost in time, like a bank error in your favor. Time to die. [As the rain continues to fall, he drops his head and silently expires.]

    Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.
