Because Hollywood rarely comes up with original ideas, you may have heard that Monopoly, the board game, will be turned into a movie. The hysterical thing is that it will be directed by Ridley Scott, who’s helmed such well respected modern classics as Gladiator, Alien & American Gangster. Details are sketchy, but will apparently involve the modern day financial crisis, as well as the history of the game. This already sounds like a mess of an idea, but The Whore is a big fan of Ridley Scott, so we’ll wait until its 2012 release to pass judgement. The Whore will make no comments alluding to the fact that 2012 could also be the end of the world. What’s next? A board game based on a Ouija board? Oh wait….
