Lionsgate and Hasbro have entered into a deal with Barbie producer LuckyChap to shepherd development and produce Monopoly, a feature based on the classic board game. The project is currently in development and Hasbro Entertainment will also produce. The news landed during Lionsgate’s presentation at CinemaCon this morning in Las Vegas.

Lionsgate extended its development rights to the game with its purchase of eOne, which was completed in December 2023. With 99% global awareness, Monopoly is the world’s most popular board game brand and is available in more than 100 countries. It has sold nearly half a billion copies going back to 1935.

LuckyChap, the award-winning production company headed by Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara, said in a statement today, “Monopoly is a top property – pun fully intended. Like all of the best IP, this game has resonated worldwide for generations, and we are so excited to bring this game to life alongside the wonderful teams involved at Lionsgate and Hasbro.”

Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Adam Fogelson said, “I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap. They are exceptional producers who choose their projects with great thought and care, and join Monopoly with a clear point of view. We are tremendously excited to be working with the entire LuckyChap team on what we all believe can be their next blockbuster.”

Zev Foreman, Head of Film for Hasbro Entertainment, added, “As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities. We are thrilled to have the unique vision of LuckyChap and Lionsgate alongside us to bring this historic piece of popular culture to the big screen.”

LuckyChap most recently produced the worldwide phenomenon Barbie, as well as Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn and the upcoming release My Old Ass, a hit at Sundance starring Aubrey Plaza and Maisy Stella.

James Myers is overseeing Monopoly on behalf of Lionsgate. Robert Melnik led the studio’s dealmaking.
