With the failure of the film version of Battleship, it seems that Hasbro may not end up going through with their plans for movies based on such prized franchises as Monopoly, Candy Land, etc. But I say don't give up, Hasbro! There are many games just waiting to be translated onto film. Here are some possible pitches.

Please feel free to pitch your own ideas.

If anyone in Hollywood ends up using these ideas, please give credit to BGG.

The pitch: a reboot of the Sherlock Holmes franchise!

... What is that you say? There's already a movie series? And a TV series? No two TV series?

Ok, well, This will be different, because it will involve a bunch of people sitting around a table PRETENDING to be Sherlock Holmes; solving crimes! That's a completely novel idea for a movie!

The pitch: Yes, it's already been made into a movie, but that was back in the Eighties! And unnecessary remakes of Eighties movies are so hot right now.

Can we get Miley Cyrus's agent on the phone?

The pitch: An epic struggle between two factions, one trying to keep the tower erected, the other trying to knock it down.

Plays out over 3 acts. Brad Pit and Angelina Jolie to produce.

The pitch: Evil zookeeper quits feeding hippos; they inexplicably resort to feeding on coconuts for sustenance.

In the end, hippos eat evil zookeeper and live happily ever after feasting on fallen coconuts.
