Scott To Pass Go For Monopoly Movie

Director Ridley Scott will helm the bizarre big screen adaptation of popular boardgame Monopoly.

The Gladiator moviemaker has been signed by studio giant Universal to bring the long-running game to life.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ridley will give the Monopoly movie a futuristic edge akin to his 1982 epic Blade Runner.

Corpse Bride screenwriter Pamela Pettler has also been drafted in to create a storyline for the film.

The unlikely subject matter is just one in a line of Hasbro games to get big screen makeovers as part of an exclusive pairing with Universal Studios.

Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay is producing a Ouija Board feature, while a film version of beloved classic Battleship is also in development.
