Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap Is Producing the ‘Monopoly’ Movie With Lionsgate

Margot Robbie is embarking on a new journey and off to a new project since the record-breaking success of Greta Gerwig‘s Barbie.

Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap, including co-founders Josey McNamara and Tom Ackerley, alongside Hasbro Entertainment, will give life to the board game Monopoly for Lionsgate in conjunction with toymaker Hasbro.

Lionsgate will distribute the forthcoming movie. Adam Fogelson, the chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, made the film announcement at CinemaCon 2024 in Las Vegas on April 10. “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,” Adam said of LuckyChap’s involvement. James Myers and Robert Melnik will be part of the project on behalf of Lionsgate.

“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.”

The head of film at Hasbro Entertainment, Zev Foreman, said, “As one of the most iconic games in the world, Monopoly provides an incredible platform for storytelling opportunities. We are thrilled to have the unique vision of LuckyChap and Lionsgate alongside us to bring this historic piece of popular culture to the big screen.”

Margot Robbie and LuckyChap have a wide array of successful movies, including the most recent, Barbie, which garnered over $1.4 billion at the global box office. Moving on, they are working with Vertigo Entertainment to create a live-action adaptation of Digital Dollhouse‘s The Sims.

In 2014, Margot Robbie, Josey McNamara, Tom Ackerley, and Sophia Kerr founded LuckyChap. It has produced movies and shows like I, Tonya (2017), Birds of Prey (2020), Maid (2021), Barbie (2023), and Saltburn (2023).
