Big Beach, the production team behind Little Miss Sunshine, is developing a film about the creation of Monopoly.

Deadline reports that the film will be based on Mary Pilon's best-selling book, The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury and the Scandal Behind the World's Favourite Board Game.

Diane Nabatoff, a producer on board for the upcoming film, said: "No-one will ever look at the Monopoly Board in the same way again."

The book reveals 'the unknown story of how Monopoly came into existence, the reinvention of its history by Parker Brothers and multiple media outlets, the lost female originator of the game, and one man's lifelong obsession to tell the true story about the game's questionable origins.'
