A Reuters/Hollywood Reporter item reveals the puzzling news that Ridley Scott will likely be directing a movie based on the Parker Brothers game Monopoly. How? Well:

Scott is officially attached to direct the Hasbro-Universal collaboration, with an eye toward giving it a futuristic sheen along the lines of his iconic "Blade Runner." Screenwriter Pamela Pettler ("Corpse Bride," "Monster House") will shape a narrative out of the iconic real estate game.



Yeah, that didn't answer the question for us either.
