Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I guess we've gotten to that point. Universal has made a deal with Hasbro to make a shit-ton of their board games into movies. Apparently Hasbro only gives their toy lines to Paramount/Dreamworks (Transformers and GI Joe) and now Universal has a monopoly (zing!) on the board games.
The deal promises at least 4 feature films. It could be anything from CANDY LAND, BATTLESHIP, MAGIC THE GATHERING, MONOPOLY, OUIJA and CLUE... wait... Didn't they already do that one? So, would it be a remake or something more true to the original... umm... source... uh... material? As long as they get Tim Curry back!
And there have been at least two OUIJA horror movies I can remember... Witchboard, anyone?
What the hell... it's Universal's money. And who would have thought adapting a Disneyland ride would have worked out so well?
And, I have to say, CANDY LAND would make one fucked up scary kid's horror/adventure movie. Give it to Gilliam!
