Monopoly could be soon coming to the big screen! During Lionsgate’s presentation at CinemaCon at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, they announced they have signed a deal with LuckyChap, the award-winning production company that is headed by Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley, and Josey McNamara, to produce “Monopoly”.

They will be developing a film based on the legendary classic board game that has kept families and friendships on edge for decades. Hasbro Entertainment will also produce. James Myers is overseeing the film on behalf of the studio. Lionsgate extended its development rights to Monopoly with its purchase of eOne.

Adam Fogelson, chair, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said, “I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap. They are exceptional producers who choose their projects with great thought and care, and join Monopoly with a clear point of view. We are tremendously excited to be working with the entire LuckyChap team on what we all believe can be their next blockbuster.”

Monopoly is the world’s most popular board game brand with 99% global awareness according to Lionsgate, and its available in over 100 countries. They have sold almost half a billion copies of the game going back to 1935.

LuckyChap is no slouch when producing hits as it recently produced “Barbie”, the award-winning critically acclaimed hit that made over $1.4 billion worldwide at the box office. As well as Emerald Fennell’s “Saltburn” and the upcoming release “My Old Ass”, starring Aubrey Plaza and Maisy Stella.

“Monopoly is a top property – pun fully intended,” said LuckyChap. “Like all of the best IP, this game has resonated worldwide for generations, and we are so excited to bring this game to life alongside the wonderful teams involved at Lionsgate and Hasbro.”
