Three more Hasbro properties are headed to the big screen as The LA Times reports that Emmett/Furla Films has signed a deal that will give them the film rights to Action Man, Hungry Hungry Hippos and the long-gestating Monopoly.

Monopoly, which already has a screenplay by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, hopes to shoot sometime next year with Ridley Scott, who was formerly attached as a director, producing.

Hungry Hungry Hippos is planning to go the animated route while plans for Action Man remain unspecified.

The family-friendly nature of all three properties will expand the focus of Emmett/Furla's output which, recently, has been on action thrillers like End of Watch and upcoming projects like Motor City and The Tomb.
