Hasbro has signed a 6-year deal that gives Universal Pictures exclusive film rights to its brands, including a number of popular board and card games.  Universal plans to release at least 4 films based on Hasbro licenses, including the previously-announced Monopoly movie.  No word on how many of these movies will be based on games, but it would be interesting to watch them try to fit Risk into an hour and a half. Still, based on the way Hasbro treats its lower-tier properties, it’s probably safe to say that we won’t be seeing RoboRally 2: Electronic Bugaloo any time soon.
