Hasbro has already announced production on movies based on The Ouija Board, Candyland, Stretch Armstrong, and Monopoly.  Now they’re threatening to make the Pirates of the Carribean of Clue remakes.

Universal has attached Gore Verbinski to develop “Clue,” a live-action murder mystery based on the Hasbro board game that he would direct.

Despite a totally metal first name, Verbinski is the director responsible for Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and there’s no excuse for that.

A previous film version was released in 1985.  “Clue” will be turned into a mystery that Blind Wink senior veep Jonathan Krauss called “A global thriller and transmedia event that uses deductive reasoning as its storytelling engine.” [Variety]

Well that sounds great, Jonathan, but on the other hand I hope you die.  In the shed by Admiral Pink with the rape stick.
