    That would be a horror film. :csad: And I'm not even being funny...those things scare me. The urban legend about how they come to life at night and choke the **** out of you.

    I actually would love to see a Monopoly movie much in the same vein as Clue. Come on a tongue in cheek movie about capitalism especially in this climate, there so much potential there if they don't **** it up.

    There's a reason they bond their arms and legs in those packages.

    I thought Ridley Scott was already attached to make Monopoly.

    I never read that, that'd be cool though. Someone mentioned Rat Race, the problem with that is that it was a vehicle for a bunch of washed up actors/actresses. If they made a monopoly movie they really should go with a no-cast.

    We can turn that into a drama/thriller about domestic violence.

    :huh: Universal made that deal a little late didn't they? Sort of missed the big two toy brands from Hasbro. I guess they can use ummmmm Action Man. But really who wants an Action Man movie. Maybe they can do a Rom the Spacenight movie or something, maybe even micronauts if Hasbro has the rights to them?

    Don't shoot me, but I'd love to see a Scrabble Rom-Com.

    Monopoly sounds like it could be a great deal of fun as well.
    Jem and the Holograms could be awesome, but something tells me it'd get Hannah Montanaed into nothingness.
