Ridley Scott to make Monopoly

06.19.2007
Wait a minute, what?

Apparently, legendary film-maker Ridley Scott believes it would be a great career move to make a feature film adaptation of the popular board game Monopoly.

Please, please, please do not take that as anything more than entertaining rumor. Because the idea of a Monopoly movie is one of the worst ideas ever, and not just in film. The article giving rise to this news further insults our intelligence by reporting that Scarlett Johansson and Kirsten Dunst are being considered for roles. Erm... As who exactly? If you ask me, the closest Monopoly should ever get to cinema, is when Ace Ventura thanks that guy for the free parking and then knocks him out in ACE VENTURA: WHEN NATURE CALLS. Finally, the article claims that Hasbro wants the film to feature "sexy young people" because it wants more teenagers to play Monopoly. I'm not really sure what to say about that, I'm pretty sure that no joke is necessary.

I'm going to look really stupid if this actually happens.
Extra Tidbit: Actually, I hope this film does get made. I'd love to see Scarlett Johansson play the 'Community Chest'... if you know what I mean.

..............

this is a fucking joke. Has to be. Why would that be true? I mean hollywood is considerably getting more and more shitty, but this is fuckin dumb! If this happens, wich is wont, and they get like Tom Hanks or someone else of a high caliber status, i would fuckiin molitov the fuck out of the set and actors until i got arrested and was revered as a modern day hero, like a saint of sorts. And nothing will make monopoly fun to play.

ridley should really sequel his best film ever, bladerunner. its begging to be done (and im begging for it too i guess) they should make clue, that way i can do it with scarlett in the bedroom. perhaps she'd let me "sink my battleship" or even get a little "kerplunk" in there. ooohh, and dont forget twister...

*scratches head*

This is an even worse idea than the "Burger King" movie, and yet, I still can't stop laughing about it. anyway, hopefully Sir Ridley will be too busy making good movies like Body of Lies, Nottingham, and Blood Meridian to even bother with this. I wouldn't be surprised if this is just Ridley having a bit of fun at our expense.

Maybe it's just about kids who use the game in a kind of real-world planning type thing, or a way of staying together.

Dunno. Either way, except for involved hotties, I predict suckage.

This could potentially be kinda fun. I wonder who would play the thimble, though? (I used the thimble quite often during my Monopoly days, lol)

Well making an adaptation doesnt mean it will be a film about the game. It'll simply take the concept and make it some sort of Wall Street film. Which is a movie about power and cash. Are you people dumb not to be able to think a little and figure things out ???

Everyone who posts here can be as pissed as they like, but I've just accepted that until the revolution happens, and people stop seeing shit like FF2, Wild Hogs and whatever else is being trotted out, we'll only keep finding new ground to break when we think the bottom has dropped out. Frankly, this really doesn't shock me given the current state of things. It's really just par for the course.

I imagine this movie being about the the death of Rich Uncle Penny Bags and his ghost helps his young apprentices make their way through the evil world of real estate and when then finally destroy the evil rich guys his soul finally gets a permanent get out of jail free card. Starring Scarlett Johansson as the shoe and Kirsten Dunst as the iron. Summer 2009.
