The toy / game company "Hasbro" continues to try to make inroads into the film world. It's being reported that the company has just signed a production deal with with independent production and finance company Emmett/Furla Films t o bring 3 more of their properties to the big screen. Those properties include "Monopoly", "Hungry Hungry Hippo" and "Action Man".

Hasbro recently had a deal with Universal pictures to produce "Battleship" which came out earlier this year to disappointing results. "Quija" was being produced by Michael Bay and was to be directed by McG, but that film has since been canceled as well as several other projects. Universal was also going to produce "Stretch Armstrong" and at one point even had "Twilight's" Taylor Lautner attached to star.

"Monopoly" was one of the films that was originally going to be done over at Universal with famed director Ridley Scott, fresh from his return to the science-fiction genre: "Prometheus". No word yet if Scott will rejoin the project now that it has a new home.

So what do you think? Are you looking forward to a "Monoploly" movie? How about "Hungry Hungry Hippo" or "Action Man"? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
