Even though Ridley Scott's new film is based off a classic board game, it seems it will also deal with current economic hardships as well. MTV Movies Blog recently spoke with Monopoly producer and Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner, who said that the film will be driven by the current state of the economy.
"The whole world is about the financial markets," Goldner said. "You can't turn on the news today without understanding the financial markets and what's going on out there." He also added that this new twist on the game is well worthy of director Ridley Scott's abilities.
"He's built these great big worlds of imagination," Goldner said of the director. "Combine that with Pamela Pettler who's writing this great script about real people kind of playing a real-life game of Monopoly, not the board game, although they're icons of the game. And then you really get the idea why this story could make sense right now."
