Here's a new mash-up of movies-meeting-marketing: Hasbro has announced plans to bring Monopoly to the big screen!

The toy-making giant has partnered with Lionsgate Entertainment and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Andrew Niccol, whose credits include The Truman Show.

The plot centers on a boy from Baltic Avenue, one of the cheapest properties in the classic board game, who uses both Chance and Community cards to make his fortune.

Will this be a kids movie or maybe a tween?  (Reuters)
