Hasbro Takes Its ‘Monopoly’ Movie to Lionsgate

Although you may have forgotten about plans for a “Monopoly” movie, Hasbro hasn’t. The toy giant is picking up the pieces of the adaptation, previously in development at Emmett/Furla Films, and taking them to Lionsgate.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Andrew Niccol (“The Truman Show,” “Gattaca”) will write the film, with Lionsgate and Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures producing.

“Monopoly” was originally part of an ambitious six-year deal signed in 2008 by Hasbro and Universal Pictures that resulted only in 2012’s “Battleship” and 2014’s “Ouija.” Ridley Scott was at one point attached to “Monopoly,” remaining even after Universal walked away from that project and others, including “Candy Land,” “Clue” and “Stretch Armstrong.”

In 2012, Hasbro struck an agreement with Emmett/Furla for movies based on “Monopoly,” “Hungry Hungry Hippos” and the action figure Action Man, but nothing came of that.
