Imagining Russell Crowe in Monopoly the Movie

I've read a few places about Ridley's Scott recently expressed interest in making a film version of the game Monopoly.

The question is, will Russell Crowe get the role as Rich Uncle Pennybags?

Below is a graphic I made of what Russell might look like as Mr. Monopoly himself.



I have so many questions beyond that, but this one will suffice for now. Since Gladiator, Russell Crowe was involved with Ridley Scott in last year's A Good Year, this year's American Gangster, next year's Body of Lies, and 2009's robin hood flick Nottingham. Surely Crowe will be Uncle Pennybags.

On TFE, they're saying either Jim Broadbent o Brian Cox. Russell Crowe? Noooo. But I'd but him as the cop that takes you to jail. Charlize Theron should be cast as the sports car though.

That picture made me giggle! Thanks for the morning laugh!

I think they need to cast Jude Law as the top hat....

Oh god I hope this is a joke!

good photoshop efforts...

I never play Monopoly, so that's one movie I can miss without a qualm, Russell or no.

@ j.d. good call as the cop...it would be like LA Confidental-reduex.

@ mercurie - i remember playing the nintendo version of monopoly and you would choose characters (penelope, gertrude, oliver, etc.) and then choose "symbols" to represent them. I imagine there will be a character who HAS a scottie dog, or does laundry (with a thimble) or wears a top hat...what do you think?

@ becca, i don't think it's a joke...although it did make marina laugh :-)

They so need to cast Micky Rooney.

that would make my day.

also Sasha Baron Choen as the car, Tom Hanks as the shoe, and lily tomlin as the iron.

Monopoly: The Movie. What an utterly odd idea and one that could be so potentially awful.
