Margot Robbie's company to produce Monopoly film

But it was announced on Wednesday that Robbie’s production company LuckyChap will produce it.

Hasbro Entertainment, part of the American toy company, will also be a producer.

Robbie’s company most recently worked on Saltburn and last year’s hit Barbie, which the Australian actress also starred in.

Speaking to Variety in February, Robbie, 33, said: “We want to make more films that have the effect that Barbie has.

“I don’t know if it has to be Barbie 2. Why can’t it be another big, original, bold idea where we get an amazing filmmaker, a big budget to play with, and the trust of a huge conglomerate behind them to go and really play? I want to do that.”

Adam Fogelson, chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said they were “tremendously excited” about the project and believe it could be the next blockbuster.

Zev Foreman, head of film for Hasbro Entertainment, said: “As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities.”
