Millionaire the movie

04.23.2003

Three people were recently convicted in Britain for conspiring (and succeeding) to win the top prize on the hit show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and now Hollywood may turn that scandal into a feature film. Like the Oscar-nominated film QUIZ SHOW, which also deals with scamming a popular game show, the "Millionaire" scandal could make its way to the big screen with Hugh Grant and Catherine Zeta-Jones starring. Unfortunately the producers wouldn't have to recast US host Regis Philbin because the scandal, where a player and audience member used a series of orchestrated coughs to relay answers, took place on the show's British version (on which the US version was based). A recent BBC documentary on the subject scored record high-ratings and will soon air on ABC News (the same network that aired "Millionaire" in the States). The project is very early in the possibility stages so don't hold your breath just yet. Another game show scheme movie, PRESS YOUR LUCK, starring Bill Murray has languished in development hell for years.
