I guess Hollywood ran out of video games to adapt and are now going retro. Hopefully someone will now read my screenplay “Boggle: Shake It Up!” (The role of “Qu” was written with Vin Diesel in mind.)

From the www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3ie9098baec9eb95cd0d7bac3726b6ce9eHollywood Reporter:

The Hasbro-Universal collaboration “Monopoly” is jumping a large number of spaces up the board.

The feature project has brought on Pamela Pettler to write the screenplay; She penned Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride,” Gil Kenan’s “Monster House” and the upcoming animated adventure “9,” produced by Burton and Timur Bekmambetov.

And Ridley Scott, who has been attached as a producer on “Monopoly” and has been mentioned as a possible director, is now officially attached to helm the project, with an eye toward giving it a futuristic sheen along the lines of his iconic “Blade Runner.”

(Bold mine – has Scott lost his marbles? Wait… marbles! That would make the perfect movie!)
