Lionsgate and Hasbro have announced they have signed a deal with LuckyChap, the award-winning production company headed by Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara, to produce “Monopoly,” a motion picture in development based on the legendary classic board game. Hasbro Entertainment will also produce. 

Lionsgate extended its development rights to the popular, multi-generational board game with its purchase of eOne, which was completed in December.  

LuckyChap most recently produced “Barbie,” the Oscar-winning hit that has taken in over $1.4 billion at the global box office, as well as Emerald Fennell’s “Saltburn” and the upcoming release “My Old Ass,” starring Aubrey Plaza and Maisy Stella.  

“I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap,” says Adam Fogelson, chair, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. “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.” 

“As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities,” says Zev Foreman, head, film, Hasbro Entertainment. “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.”
