Monopoly Movie

As a big fan of the board game Monopoly, I don't know how I feel about the upcoming Monopoly Movie. If you haven't heard yet, Ridley Scott has been slated to direct a motion picture based on the game Monopoly.

If you're like me, you're probably asking, "How can they make a movie out of a board game?" Well at this point details are scarce but it seems that it's going to somehow be related to our struggling economy. I guess I can see how mortgaging New York Avenue might somehow be like all the foreclosures that are taking place around the country. But really is that enough to fill the big screen for about two hours?

Ridley Scott has directed Gladiator and Blade Runner so I think he should stick to the action format. How about the stars of the movie racing around Atlantic City in a race car, trying to avoid going to jail all the while a mega tycoon type is buying up the strip to try to stop them. Hmmm, sounds pretty weak actually.

Well good luck to this movie but I'm not sold on the idea yet.
