Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap Scores Big: Monopoly Movie Set to Hit Theaters

After a decade in the making, the highly anticipated Monopoly film is finally making strides in Hollywood. According to the latest report from the Hollywood Reporter, the wheels are in motion for what could be a blockbuster production.

The big news broke this Wednesday as it was officially announced that Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap, will take the reins in bringing this iconic board game to the silver screen. Adding to the excitement, Hasbro Entertainment, a key player in the American toy industry, will also join forces as a producer for the project.

This development comes hot on the heels of Robbie’s recent successes, including the critically acclaimed “Barbie” and “Saltburn.” Speaking passionately about her vision for the future of filmmaking, Robbie expressed her desire to create impactful cinema that resonates with audiences worldwide.

“I don’t know if it has to be Barbie 2. Why can’t it be another big, original, bold idea where we get an amazing filmmaker, a big budget to play with, and the trust of a huge conglomerate behind them to go and really play? I want to do that,” Robbie shared with Variety in February.

Industry insiders are equally enthusiastic about the Monopoly project. Adam Fogelson, chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, described their excitement as “tremendous,” believing that this could indeed be the next big blockbuster.

Zev Foreman, head of film for Hasbro Entertainment, highlighted the storytelling potential of Monopoly, emphasizing its status as one of the most iconic games in the world.

This significant move also marks Lionsgate’s continued investment in the board game realm, as they extended their development rights last December through the acquisition of Hasbro’s Entertainment One (eOne).

With Barbie reigning as the highest-grossing film last year, raking in $1.38 billion globally, all eyes are now on Monopoly to see if it can emulate—or even surpass—such success.

As the Monopoly film project gains momentum, audiences eagerly anticipate the unfolding of this classic game’s story on the silver screen.
