Oscar®-Nominated Producers of “Barbie” to Shepherd Film Development
SANTA MONICA, Calif. April 10, 2024 – Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) and Hasbro announced today that they have signed a deal with LuckyChap, the award-winning production company headed by Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley, and Josey McNamara, to produce Monopoly, a motion picture in development based on the legendary classic board game.

Lionsgate extended its development rights to the beloved, multi-generational board game with its purchase of eOne, which was completed in December 2023.  Monopoly is the world’s most popular board game brand, with 99% global awareness, and is available in more than 100 countries across the globe, selling nearly half a billion copies going back to 1935.
LuckyChap most recently produced Barbie, the Oscar-winning hit that has taken in over $1.4 billion worldwide at the global box office, as well as Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn and the upcoming release My Old Ass, a hit at Sundance starring Aubrey Plaza and Maisy Stella. 
Adam Fogelson, chair, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said, “I could not imagine a better production team for this beloved and iconic brand than LuckyChap. They are exceptional producers who choose their projects with great thought and care, and join Monopoly with a clear point of view. We are tremendously excited to be working with the entire LuckyChap team on what we all believe can be their next blockbuster."
“Monopoly is a top property – pun fully intended,” said LuckyChap. “Like all of the best IP, this game has resonated worldwide for generations, and we are so excited to bring this game to life alongside the wonderful teams involved at Lionsgate and Hasbro.”
