A movie based on the Monopoly board game will be written by Andrew Niccol and produced by Lionsgate. Niccol has written The Truman Show, Gattaca, and The Terminal.

"Andrew Niccol is the ultimate world creator...He is an inspired choice to develop this timeless property into a big, crowd-pleasing event film that will appeal to kids, families and anyone who has ever played the Monopoly game," says Loinsgate co-president Erik Feig. The plot of Monopoly features a boy from Baltic Avenue who uses Community and Chance in his journey to make his fortune.
