Another nostalgic game is going to hit the theaters pretty soon as “Monopoly,” a devised family adventure film, is set to go into production this summer with its cast and its crew about to be announced in the earliest possible time. Read on to know more about the details of this scoop.
The Monopoly movie has long been planned to be one of the Hasbro properties to be adapted into a main movie medium. The success of “Transformers” shed a light on such prospect but it seemed that that’s the only toy franchise that reached an apex of success in the Box Office scene. “Battleship” made an attempt, but it didn’t really pick up with the people. However, “Ouija” managed to at least garner about $84 million in the box office with its $5 million production budget. Now, things are moving forward for another toy that will get its own story, and that will be on the real estate market side in “Monopoly.”
According to Collider, they’ve managed to get a sit-down interview with Randall Emmett, a producer of the independent production Emett/Furla films that acquired the film rights of “Monopoly” from Hasbro, and he’s giving the update in the coming production for the real-estate-based board game. Their production has been working in the script for quite some time now, and they feel like they’ve reached the part where things have finally fallen into place and that production should start at the earliest available time.
“We’ve worked on the script for about nine months; we now have a script that we’re going to go make this summer,” said the producer.
Moreover, the producing head didn’t divulge extra information regarding the creative minds who worked behind the screenplay as well as the film’s main plot. He did, however, reveal that the movie is a family-adventure film that has “The Goonies” kind of feels into it with the presence of a treasure map into the storyline. They also have a shortlist on who would helm the film as well as the prospective actors who would play as the leads.
As per Screen Rant’s take on the coming of this popular board game into the big screen, the future of this promising movie rests on how the people behind it would create it as a fixed, comprehensive narrative that would either spring close to the success that the “Transformers” has created or fallback as a disappointment that the “Battleship” turned out to be.
