Sony Pictures acquires motion picture rights for RISK from Hasbro
The film will be produced and developed by Hasbro's Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir and Overbrook Entertainment's James Lassiter.
Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, said: “The strategic thinking and the tactical gambles that players must take in the game are what make RISK a classic, thoroughly engaging game. Those elements translated into an action-packed, thrilling story are what will make this a uniquely exciting movie.”
Brian Goldner, president and CEO of Hasbro, said: “We are thrilled to be working with tremendous partners like Sony Pictures and Overbrook Entertainment on RISK. Like so many of Hasbro's brands, RISK resonates with consumers of multiple generations around the world. We can't wait to re-imagine this brand into a motion picture.”
