America's favorite not-Oscar host, Kevin Hart, is still getting a ton of job offers. It would seem he is set to star in "Monopoly" the big screen adaptation of the famous board game. Why is this a thing? I don't know. But...let's talk about it.
CLICK HERE for the details on the new project. To summarize, it will be directed by Tim Story who directed Ride Along with Kevin Hart. Story also directed the first Barbershop movie. Those are all fine movies. He also directed the 2005 version of Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel. Not as great.
This movie has gone through several different attempts. None of which resulted in an actual movie being made. For about a decade now, Hasbro has been trying to get Monopoly in to the multiplex. This looks a thing that is actually happening. So, hop on the Short Line Railroad and enjoy the ride.
