Making movies out of board games seems to be all the chatter again, with Monopoly and now Hungry Hungry Hippos being at the top of the list again.
You’d think they’d have learned something from Battleship, though.
So what board games do you think could be turned into an entertaining movie project?
And technically, Clue, Mouse Trap have already been made into films (and a stage play), but there could always be a remake lurking in someone’s mind…
Here’s a list to play with for now, and you can pick up to three games. Let us know, let Hollywood know, or just vent about why someone thinks a board game could make a good movie.
And yes, there are too many board games out there to list, even ones not owned by Hasbro (and it’s subsidiaries, Milton-Bradley and Parker Bros), and maybe there’s a game out there that could make it work.
So if there’s one that you really think could make a good movie, for Pete’s sake, don’t tell US — write the screenplay yourself, sell to Hollywood and maybe send Slice of SciFi a small finder’s fee when you get paid the big bucks!
