Monopoly Alive With “1408” Writers

Though Universal Pictures dropped the film adaptation of the iconic real-estate board game “Monopoly”, producers Hasbro and Ridley Scott are continuing development on the project.

Now they’ve hired “1408,” “Ed Wood” and “The People vs Larry Flynt” writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski to pen the script says Heat Vision. Previously Pamela Pettler (“Corpse Bride,” “Monster House”) was attached to work on the script.

Scott remains attached to direct while Hasbro’s Bennett Schneir and Brian Goldner will produce.
