Ridley Scott presents: Monopoly: The Game: The Movie

BLADE RUNNER MONOPOLY!
The Hasbro-Universal collaboration "Monopoly" is jumping a large number of spaces up the board.

The feature project has brought on Pamela Pettler to write the screenplay; She penned Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride," Gil Kenan's "Monster House" and the upcoming animated adventure "9," produced by Burton and Timur Bekmambetov.

And 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."

In addition to Scott, Giannina Facio and Hasbro's Brian Goldner are also producing the movie, which will shape a narrative out of the iconic real-estate game. Lawrence Grey will oversee for Universal and Bennett Schneir will oversee for Hasbro.

"Monopoly" marks the latest Hasbro property to look to pass go and head to the big screen. Board games and branded properties have become more attractive as studios look to mitigate risk by finding built-in audiences.

Universal is working with Hasbro on several projects as part of a long-term development deal. Platinum Dunes is producing its feature adaptation of "Ouija Board," while the maritime classic "Battleship" is also in development. Elsewhere at Hasbro, Paramount this summer is set to release Stephen Sommers' feature based on its "G.I. Joe" character. And "Trivial Pursuit: America Plays" is now airing as a syndicated television program.

    The last Hasbro-Universal collaboration was Transformers, and I think we all know how that turned out.

    EDIT: Nevermind, that was Paramount. My mistake.

    I'm trying to think of how a Monopoly movie would work

    I mean a Clue movie makes sense, since it has a general storyline to it

    But Monopoly? Is it just going to be some old dude in a top hat and tuxedo dicking people over?

    Actually, that'd be pretty awesome.

    He'd probably like me more if he didn't taste so good with butter and cheese.

    Knights stopped being cool when they stopped being able to impale people on lances.
