Universal Banks On Boardgames


Posted February 20, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Universal announced today that it has acquired the film rights to a number of Hasbro toy lines, including Monopoly, Magic: The Gathering, Oujia, Stretch Armstrong, Battleship and Candyland.

Seriously. This is not just a parody post to highlight the creative bankruptcy of big Hollywood films. It's really true. Ridely Scott (director of Alien, American Gangster and Blade Runner) is hard at work on the big screen adaptation of Monopoly.

We really didn't make that up.

Can Famous Mortimer's Coupon: The Movie be far behind?
