A 'Monopoly' movie is actually happening
The "Monopoly" movie is apparently real, and imminent.
Oscar-nominated screenwriter and director Andrew Niccol ("Gattaca," "The Truman Show," "The Host") is on board to write the script for the Lionsgate-backed board-game adaptation, Hasbro announced on Wednesday. Here's the logline:
The story will center on a boy from Baltic Avenue who uses both Chance and Community in a quest to make his fortune, taking him on a fun, adventure-filled journey. Along the way he will have to make his own luck, while hoping to avoid going directly to jail.
Monopoly has been played by an estimated one billion people in 114 countries and has been translated into 47 languages.
