Coming to Theaters This Fall: "Othello"...But Not the Shakespeare One
From The New York Times Lede Blog:
Universal Pictures has announced a six-year partnership with Hasbro to produce at least four feature films based on branded properties.
The properties include “Monopoly,” “Candy Land,” “Clue,” “Ouija,” “Battleship,” “Magic, The Gathering” and “Stretch Armstrong.”
Ignoring the fact that Clue was already made into a movie over 12 years ago, the question remains--will people really want to sit through Monopoly: The Movie, which no doubt will run eight hours only to end in a big fight?
On the other hand, Stretch Armstrong: The Trilogy can't make it to theaters fast enough.
