With Ridley Scott preparing his not-quite-an-Alien-prequel, Prometheus, and Alcon Entertainment hoping to bleed Blade Runner for all its worth, MTV News figured this would be a good time to ask Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner if Scott is still going to make that supposedly Blade Runner-esque Monopoly movie. The answer: he sure is! According to Goldner:

"'Monopoly' is still happening, and we're developing a great story. It's a very fun take. Ridley is still the perfect creative steward, because he creates these great, fictionalized worlds. It's going to be a very fun story to tell."

Just so long as the story is told, Brian. That story being the rich, oft-recounted tale of Monopoly having reasonably-marketable name recognition.
