Outrageous! by T_Emery_Lolsworth on 02-21-2008
Oh Jesus f#*k what is this dept: Universal Pictures have signed a four-picture deal with board game makers Hasbro
And we mean board games. Hasbro might own GI Joe, My Little Pony and Jem and the Holograms, but it's not those that are getting adapted
Nope - they're making a movie of Monopoly. Also of Candy Land, Ouija and f#*king Battleship. Movies. Presumably with seven or eight figure budgets. It almost shows contempt for the very concept of money.
Seriously, make a Jem and the Holograms film instead, at least that's a property that makes f#*king sense
And yes, I know that Disney did well with their "adapting theme park rides" thing, but only with Pirates and the Carribean and only because they got awesome people on every level.
Remember "Haunted Mansion" with Eddie Murphy? Of course not. Monopoly: the Movie will be A TENTH THAT SUCCESFUL. THIS IS INSANITY ON A GIGANTIC SCALE. Does "Jem" the cartoon series feel like a half-remembered fever dream to anyone else?
