'Corpse Bride' Writer for 'Monopoly', Ridley Scott Confirmed as Director


Pamela Pettler, the writer of Tim Burton's 'Corpse Bride', will join Ridley Scott in developing 'Monopoly', a movie based on the popular board game.

A movie based on the popular board game by Parker Brothers, "Monopoly", is moving forward. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie has now found its screenwriter in Pamela Pettler. The scribbler who has worked on the script of Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" and Gil Kenan's "Monster House" has come aboard to pen the film's screenplay.

Beside picking up its writer, the movie has also put Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Ridley Scott on the director chair. Previously, the man behind "American Gangster" has been attached to the project as the producer. As the producer, he will collaborate with Giannina Facio and Hasbro's Brian Goldner.

Though the film's crew is starting to shape up, there is no words yet on the cast ensemble. Back in 2007, many speculated that the front runners for the cast included Scarlett Johansson and Kirsten Dunst. However, to date, the possible casting of the two actresses remain in the dark.
