Director Gore Verbinski might soon earn himself the title of adaptation master. After successfully bringing a Disneyland ride to the bigscreen with three Pirates of the Caribbean films, the director is currently working on other adaptations such as Heavy Metal and the vidgame Bioshock. So Disneyland ride, animated series and a popular first person shooter. How about a board game too?
Gore Verbinski to Direct Clue
Universal Pictures has attached Gore Verbinski to direct Clue, a live-action murder mystery based on the Hasbro board game that he would direct.
Released in 1948 by Anthony Pratt, the popular board game went on to earn more that $1 billion worldwide. The game was later turned into a film in 1985 and featured a cast that included Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd.
Considering that Clue is from Hasbro, I guess it was only a matter of time before it became a film once again. The game company has enjoyed a constant stream of film revenue thanks to properties such as Transformers and G.I. Joe; to name only a few.
