The first and only proper response to this is right here.

This literally proves that people will make movies out of anything for money.

Hasbro is a partner with incredible global reach, one of the most compelling brand portfolios in the world, and a signature brand in Monopoly that has multigenerational appeal. Andrew Niccol is the ultimate world creator responsible for such disparate and imaginative films as The Truman Show, Gattaca, and The Terminal. He is an inspired choice to develop this timeless property into a big, crowd-pleasing event film that will appeal to kids, families and anyone who has ever played the Monopoly game.” – Erik Feig Picture Group Co-President of Lionsgate

This was coupled by a statement from Stephen Davis, Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer of Hasbro.

As we’ve seen with our other movies and television series, Hasbro’s brands are terrific for creating engaging stories and appealing characters that speak to audiences of all ages, and together with Lionsgate we will bring Monopoly to life on the big screen. Monopoly is one of the most popular games of all time, and it will translate into a film with tremendous global appeal and marketability based on a script being deftly written by the remarkable Andrew Niccol.”

Translation for all of that malarkey? They want to make money because they have seen other films like it make money.

Who knows though? This could become an amazing movie. Let’s see what will happen to a boy from Baltic Avenue who uses Chance and Community on his journey.

Never mind…My first statement still applies.
