Actress Margot Robbie will produce a live-action film based on the iconic board game Monopoly.

The 33-year-old celeb along with her husband, Tom Ackerley, and Josey McNamara will release the project under their LuckyChap banner, per IndieWire. The film will be distributed by Lionsgate and produced by Hasbro Entertainment. The announcement was made Wednesday morning during Lionsgate’s CinemaCon 2024 presentation.

“Monopoly is a top property — pun fully intended,” LuckyChap said in a statement. “Like all of the best IP, this game has resonated worldwide for generations, and we are so excited to bring this game to life alongside the wonderful teams involved at Lionsgate and Hasbro.”

“I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap,” Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Adam Fogelson said in a statement Wednesday, per the outlet. “They are exceptional producers who choose their projects with great thought and care, and join Monopoly with a clear point of view.”

“We are tremendously excited to be working with the entire LuckyChap team on what we all believe can be their next blockbuster,” he continued.

Zev Foreman, Hasbro Entertainment Head of Film, also had glowing things to say about the new partnership. “As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities,” he said. “We are thrilled to have the unique vision of LuckyChap and Lionsgate alongside us to bring this historic piece of popular culture to the big screen.”


Hasbro’s Monopoly is a multiplayer economics-themed board game that debuted in 1935. The popular game has hundreds of different editions and spinoffs and is sold in more than 100 countries and 75 different languages. It’s estimated that more than 275 million copies of Monopoly have been sold worldwide.

Hasbro Entertainment has more than 30 active projects in development, the outlet noted, including an animated “Transformers One” and a live-action “Dungeons & Dragons” series for Paramount+. 

LuckyChap is also working on a film adaptation of the popular life simulation video game, The Sims. 

Robbie played the titular star in the 2023 summer blockbuster “Barbie,” directed by Greta Gerwig, which brought in $1.4 billion at the box office and was nominated for eight Academy Awards.
