Monopoly: the movie
Posted November 12th, 2009 by debritz
A film from a board game? Yes, apparently Alien and Gladiator director Ridley Scott is preparing to add Monopoly to his CV. The LA Times notes that it's not so crazy. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was, after all, inspired by a theme-park ride. One character in the movie will be the top-hatted little capitalist known as Rich Uncle Pennybags or Mr Monopoly. I hope his recent nemesis, The Simpsons' Monty Burns, will also make an appearance.
