'Monopoly': board-game turns board-movie
If Stateside gossip-mongering is true, the planet’s most popular board game ‘Monopoly’, and the catalyst of many family feuds is to be made into a movie.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the keys to the property tycoon game are to be given to Brit flicker Ridley Scott, the man behind Gladiator, Alien and Blade Runner, while Pamela Pettler the scriptwriter behind Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride is also said to be onboard (game).
The buxom Scarlett Johansson and Kirsten Dunst are rumoured to star. Presumably as Community Chests. Boom boom.
