Director Sir Ridley Scott, a certifiable genius for his work on classics like Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, and Gladiator, has signed on to make a movie out of Monopoly. The board game.
There's no way this can be good. Clue pretty much nailed the "okay, fine, it's a board game, but we made it really funny" genre. How can this possibly turn out okay?
I am reminded of the moment in Idiocracy where Luke Wilson watches a movie called Ass, which consists of exactly that, and nothing else, for 90 minutes. One ass. It won the Academy Award.
Monopoly is the next step in that direction.
