Hart, along with John Cheng and Carli Haney, will produce the movie under Hart’s HartBeat Productions. Co-producers of the board game-inspired movie include Story and Sharla Sumpter Bridgett from The Story Co. as well as Brian Goldner, Stephen Davis, and Greg Mooradian from Allspark Pictures, a film division of Hasbro. The producers have not released an official summary, a screenwriter, or the shoot date.
Hasbro was trying to pass “Go” on the project for almost 10 years. Original versions of the synopsis tell the story of a young man from the game’s Baltic Avenue looking to strike it rich as a property tycoon, NME reported.
Monopoly will be the most recent project from Hart and Story. They previously collaborated on Ride Along franchise, three film versions of Hart’s stand-up shows, and Night School.
