Monopoly is the world’s most popular board game, with 99% global awareness. It is available in more than 100 countries and has sold nearly half a billion copies since 1935.

LuckyChap most recently produced Barbie, the Oscar-winning hit that has taken in over $1.4 billion worldwide at the global box office, as well as Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn and the upcoming release My Old Ass, a hit at Sundance starring Aubrey Plaza and Maisy Stella.

Adam Fogelson, chair of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said, “I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap. They are exceptional producers who choose their projects with great thought and care and join Monopoly with a clear point of view.

“We are tremendously excited to be working with the entire LuckyChap team on what we all believe can be their next blockbuster.”

“Monopoly is a top property – pun fully intended,” said LuckyChap. “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.”

Zev Foreman, Head of Film for Hasbro Entertainment, said, “As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities. 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.”

James Myers is overseeing Monopoly on behalf of the studio. Robert Melnik led the studio’s dealmaking.
