A Clue Remake Is Coming From Fox Because It's 2016 and Everything Is a Remake

Clue, the shining example that all board game movies (if they have to exist at all) should strive to emulate, is getting a remake.


The news comes from Tracking Board, with no official word, so take this news with whatever amount of salt that means for you. According to the article, Hasbro and Fox are working together to get the movie made.

The last time we heard of this, it was when Universal gave up on making a Clue movie in 2011, with Pirates of the Caribbean’s Gore Verbinski attached to direct. It’s more than believable that Hasbro went looking for another partner, since they’ve made Monopoly and Risk deals and managed to get Battleship made.

While it’s unlikely a remake will match the highs of the original Clue, at least we can all bet it’ll be better than Ouija.
