    Plot for the Monopoly movie revealed

    Not too long ago (at least it seems as such) it was announced that a Monopoly movie was going to be made by director Ridley Scott. And yesterday an article from the LA Times surfaced with an interview with Frank Beddor who will be writing the movie.

Eleanor Peacock and Diane White are the last two characters. The characters now have special powers that assist them with finding out who the real culprit is. The weapons list has increased to include: candlestick, knife,rope, dumbbell, trophy or poison and others. We say goodbye
