Do Not Pass Go: Ridley Scott's "Monopoly"

According to New York Mag's Vulture, Sir Ridley Scott, Master and Commander himself, thinks that his movie based on the board game Monopoly should be inspired by the laughs and times of Donald Trump.

Should Ridley Scott Take a Walk on the Boardwalk?

According to New York Mag's Vulture, Sir Ridley Scott, Master and Commander himself, thinks that his movie based on the board game Monopoly should be inspired by the laughs and times of Donald Trump. (Hasn't Celebrity Apprentice already filled that ecological niche)? If I were the casting director, I would hire Dan Aykroyd to play The Donald. But who gets to play the shoe?

Will the title be Go Directly to Jail or Do Not Pass Go? Should it be filmed in Atlantic City, the streets and avenues of which lent their names to those in the board game? Casting and plot suggestions?

For other board-game inspired movies  in the pipeline, consult Flickgrrl's prior blog post, From Board Game to Big Screen.
