And Here Comes the Remake

Gore Verbinski to Direct Clue - "Universal Pictures has attached Gore Verbinski ('Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise) to develop Clue, a live-action murder mystery based on the Hasbro board game that he would direct, reports Variety.

Verbinski will produce through his Universal-based Blind Wink company, along with Hasbro's Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir, who also have an overall deal at the studio."

Verbinski's really stretching here...a film based on a board game, rather than on a videogame.

I can't get used to Hasbro having bought up Parker Bros, Milton Bradley, S&R, etc. Where was the bailout money when monopoly was overtaking MONOPOLY, to say nothing of LIFE generally. A SORRY thing. It's a hard SCRABBLE existence, finding room for any other boards...

Sounds like it will be way better than the last one!
