The Monopoly movie will be like WHAT?!

January 24th, 2015 by Marc Comments


So there’s a Monopoly movie coming. And we’re still not sure what exactly that means.

But never fear, all shall become clear. Possibly.

Believe it our not, a Monopoly movie idea has been floating around for a while now – at one stage Ridley Scott was attached to direct the story of a guy who was magically transported into the board game, it was to be written by one of There’s Something About Mary’s scribes, Frank Beddor.

However, the newest idea behind it is something quite different.

It’s going to be like Goonies.

Hold on, what?

Talking to Collider, producer Randall Emmett says there’s a new Monopoly script and an announcement of a director will happen next month: he says the movie will be like The Goonies and will be about a bunch of kids trying ti escape an evil tycoon.

Em, right.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
