    Margot Robbie Set To Produce Live-Action Film Based On Monopoly After Success Of ‘Barbie’

    Margot Robbie is not stopping at the massive success her first project as a producer gave her. After setting a benchmark in Hollywood with ‘Barbie‘, the actress is set to take on another interesting project with her production company LuckyChap.

    As if ‘Barbie‘ wasn’t already a challenging project, Robbie is now taking on the challenge of bringing the classic board game Monopoly to the big screen. The 33-year-old actress and producer will work with partners Josey McNamara and Tom Ackerley, Robbie’s own husband, to produce the Monopoly movie under their banner.

    Distributed by Lionsgate and produced in collaboration with Hasbro Entertainment, the Monopoly movie project comes as an exciting prospect for fans as well as all the parties involved in the project. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Adam Fogelson said he is quite confident about the project, especially because of the exceptional production team assembled for the iconic brand

    I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap,” Fogelson said in a statement on Wednesday. “They are exceptional producers who choose their projects with great thought and care, and join Monopoly with a clear point of view,” he added.

    LuckyChap also issued a statement, underscoring the universal appeal of Monopoly and how it is, therefore, a brilliant idea to turn into a film.

    Calling the board game a timeless classic that has captivated audiences worldwide for generations, the company said in its statement, “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.”

    Hasbro Entertainment Head of Film Zev Foreman also spoke about the immense storytelling potential inherent in the Monopoly concept. “As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities,” he said.

    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,” Foreman added.

    With Barbie already proving to be a major success at the global box office, earning over $1.4 billion and critical acclaim, LuckyChap is taking on other ambitious projects as well. Other than the Monopoly film, the production company is also looking to venture into video game adaptations as well as ‘The Sims’ movie.
