20th Century Fox has reportedly scored the rights to Hasbro’s “CLUE” game with plans for a new film adaptation of the property.
Josh Feldman is producing the new take on the murder mystery board game, this one expanding the playing field to a ‘worldwide mystery’ and introducing action-adventure elements that could kick off the start of franchise.
The remake was previously set up at Universal before the studio dropped the project in 2011. Director Gore Verbinski was previously attached to helm that earlier incarnation – it’s not clear if he is still involved in any capacity on the new version.
The property was previously adapted into the 1985 feature which has since become a comedy classic with a massive cult following thanks to the razor sharp script by John Landis (“Coming to America”) and Jonathan Lynn (“Nuns on the Run”) and its bevy of great performers including Tim Curry, Madeline Khan, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Lesley Ann Warren, Eileen Brennan and Martin Mull.
