Hint |  Hasbro and Sony attempt a new adaptation of the board game – Filmstories

Better known as Cluedo in the UK, Clue could eventually be a TV series, as Hasbro and Sony announce their latest effort to adapt the board game.

Nowadays, movies based on toys and games attract audiences. People also seem to like murder mysteries, though Knives out there is something to do. All of this could explain why Hasbro is teaming up with Sony in another attempt at adapting the murder mystery board game. Hint (known in the UK as Cluedo) for the screen.

As Variety reports, Hasbro Entertainment and Sony have signed a deal to make a movie or TV series. At the time of writing, it is unclear which path the two companies will take.

In a statement shared by the outlet, Hasbro bosses described Clue as “culturally impactful”, which is a pretty funny thing to say about an old board game that came with a little piece of string and a miniature gun , but it’s the 21st century for you.

“Sony is the perfect partner to adapt a property as culturally impactful and mysterious as Clue,” reads Hasbro’s blurb. “Nicole Brown [TrisStar Pictures president]Katherine Pope [Sony Pictures TV studios]and their teams are wonderful creative collaborators and ideal partners in helping us determine after 75 years if that was Colonel Mustard in the veranda with the candlestick.

Hint was previously adapted in 1985, with that film (starring Tim Curry, pictured) given different endings that varied from theater to theater.

There have been several attempts to create a new Hint since, with the most recent announced in 2022 – Ryan Reynolds was supposed to play, The Muppets’ James Bobbin was going to direct, and the whole thing was financed by Universal. Then the studio dropped it and 20th Century Fox picked it up. The new agreement between Hasbro and Sony presumably concerns the entire Reynolds project, written by The lost cityOren Uziel of, was quietly killed – perhaps with a toy gun.

THE Hint this announcement follows the doll phenomenon barbiethe success of which saw its star and producer Margot Robbie embark on an adaptation of Monopoly – another old board game owned by Hasbro.
