Margot Robbie Has a Monopoly Movie in the Works

The 'Barbie' star announced the film during CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Margot Robbie is doubling (and tripling) down on adapting beloved games and toys into movies. 

On Wednesday, it was announced at CinemaCon that the 33-year-old Barbie star will produce a film version of Monopoly through her production company, LuckyChap, alongside Hasbro, the maker of the real-estate board game.

The multi-player game, where competitors vie to win the biggest share of property and bankrupt their fellow contestants, is one of the most prolific of its kind with roots going back to 1903. In its 100-year history, Monopoly has inspired TV and movie-themed editions, an interactive McDonald's game and several apps for addicted players.

More than half a billion copies of the game have been sold since 1935, Lionsgate studio execs said at CinemaCon. The film is made possible through Lionsgate's purchase of eOne entertainment company in December, which gave them producing rights for the Monopoly brand. 

It's currently unclear if Robbie -- who operates LuckyChap alongside her husband, Tom Ackerley, and partners Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr -- have found a director or writers for the Monopoly film. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chair Adam Fogelson told audience members at the film-centric event in Las Vegas that LuckyChap has "a clear point of view" when it comes to the story and direction of their Monopoly film.

Just last month, news broke that Robbie is also set to bring The Sims to the silver screen. That project will see a team-up between LuckyChap, Vertigo Entertainment and Electronic Arts, which published the original game.

The film will be helmed by Loki director Kate Herron, who is also slated to co-write the script alongside Briony Redman, an actor and writer who previously wrote for the long-running British drama, Doctor Who.

It appears that studios are lining up to work with LuckyChap -- who also produced I, Tonya and Emerald Fennell's Saltburn -- after Barbie, Robbie's collaboration with writer-director Greta Gerwig, brought in $1.4 billion at the box office and scored nine Academy Award nominations.

In January, ET spoke with Robbie and asked about what comes next for the actress and producer after making history with Barbie. She teased that while the film's press run was coming to an end, they may be open to giving the film the musical treatment with a Broadway show or movie-musical version.  

"Trust me, this isn't the first ... this is not the first time we've thought of it, yeah," she said. "It's so fun when you can turn everything into a big, crazy musical number. Everything is infinitely more fun."

"I'm deeply [in] love [with] musicals," added Gerwig. "I really love musicals. I mean, nothing would make me happier. So, I would love a musical."
