According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, the Gladiator director is officially at the helm of the project and is considering giving it a futuristic sheen along the lines of his iconic film, Blade Runner.

Pamela Pettler will write the screenplay and Scott has been mentioned as a possible director.

In addition, Giannina Facio and Hasbro’s Brian Goldner will also be involved with producing the movie, which will shape a narrative out of the real-estate game.

Lawrence Grey will oversee for Universal and Bennett Schneir will supervise for Hasbro in one of a number of projects the two companies are working on as part of a long-term development deal.

Platinum Dunes will produce a feature adaptation of Ouija Board and the maritime classic, Battleship is also in development.

Elsewhere at Hasbro, Paramount is set to release a feature based on its GI Joe character and Trivial Pursuit: America Plays is now now airing as a syndicated television programme.
