According to New York Post, Scarlett Johansson and Kirsten Dunst have showed interest in starring in a film adaptation of Monopoly. The world’s best-selling game is being transferred into an improbable feature-length movie by director Ridley Scott. Scarlett has reportedly found the idea of a film version “funny, wacky, but interesting.”
Hasbro, the owners of Monopoly’s manufacturers, Parker Brothers, expects the movie to be a blockbuster with Ridley at the helm. Casting agency William Morris told the company that it would take sexy stars to make the unlikely film a worldwide hit.
“Everyone has played Monopoly in one version or another so, hopefully, they would be curious about how it translates to the screen,” a Hasbro consultant said.
