Risk Board Game

Sony Pictures Entertainment has acquired movie rights to the board game Risk from Hasbro. Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s CEO, and executive Bennett Schneir will produce the action/military film with Overbrook Entertainment. According to Variety, the deal with Sony Pictures allows Hasbro to produce two large-scale films.

Earlier this week, it was reported that a Ouija board movie will be made as part of the six-year agreement between Hasbro and Universal. The deal gives Universal the rights to produce at least four movies based on Hasbro’s toys and games. So far, Hasbro’s Stretch Armstrong, Candyland, Monopoly, Battleship, and Ouija board are being developed as movies by Universal.
