The studio behind the Saw and Hunger Games series, Lionsgate studios, have announced that they will be working with Hasbro to release a Monopoly movie. That is Monopoly as in the board game in which you keep losing money to your friends at every turn until eventually they sell the shirt off their backs to pay rent…

Or we play Monopoly a little bit different.

Either way, the studio has hired Andrew Niccol, who has earned an academy award for The Truman Show; to write the script for the upcoming movie which is “big, crowd-pleasing event film” that should appeal to everyone who has played Monopoly, and be “a film for all ages, visually sumptuous, heartwarming, and full of action and adventure.”

According to the official plotlines: “The story centers on a boy from Baltic Avenue who uses both Chance and Community in a quest to make his fortune, taking him on a fun, adventure-filled journey. It’s about making your own luck, what makes you truly rich and, of course, avoiding Jail time!”

No release date, actors or directors have been stated for the film as of yet.
