Ridley Scott to direct ‘Monopoly’

Writer Pettler to pen script

Ridley Scott has officially moved onto Park Avenue.

The helmer will direct Universal Pictures’ bigscreen version of Hasbro’s Monopoly board game from a script by Pamela Pettler.

Scribe’s written toons “Monster House,” “The Corpse Bride” and “9,” which Tim Burton and “Wanted”-helmer Timur Bekmambetov are producing.

Scott, who recently helmed Warner Bros.’ “Body of Lies” has long been attached to the project. He will produce, with Hasbro topper Brian Goldner, as well as direct.

“Monopoly” is set up at Universal Pictures, which has a first-look deal with Hasbro to develop movies based on the company’s line of toys. Those include “Ouija,” which Platinum Dunes is developing, and “Battleship.”

Hasbro jumped into the adaptation game after successfully turning its “Transformers” toys into a franchise at DreamWorks and Paramount. It has actioner “G.I. Joe” bowing next summer.
