Monopoly Movie Still a Go


There hasn’t been much of an update on Ridley Scott’s proposed adaptation of the popular board game Monopoly since spoke to Scott last year. With Scott currently involved in making Prometheus, it was suspected that the family-friendly film may have fallen by the wayside.

Not so, says an update today from MTV News today wherein Hasbro ECO Brian Goldner indicates that Scott still has every intent on getting Monopoly past Go.

“[It’s] still happening,” says Goldner, “and we’re developing a great story. It’s a very fun take. Ridley is still the perfect creative steward, because he creates these great, fictionalized worlds…Suffice it to say, it’s a story about a family with a history, and we’re projecting that into current times. But it’s not ‘Wall Street’. It’s more about property ownership and of the play-pattern of the game.”

Whether or not the film becomes Scott’s first post-Prometheus project remains to be seen, but Monopoly is still definitely on the horizon.
