    That's right... the board game Battleship is being made into a movie.

    2012 release date. Rhianna, Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch are among the stars with Peter Berg in the director's seat.

    More board game/toy movies are in the works, including Monopoly, CandyLand, Ouija, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, and a remake of Clue...

    Seems kind of weird. You want to make a naval war movie - make one. Maybe even get MB to pay you to tie in to the movie.

    One question though - Does the US even have any active battleships anymore?

    Col. Mustard: Steve Martin
    Miss Scarlett: Scarlett Johansson
    Mrs. White: Catherine O'Hara
    Mrs. Peacock: Tina Fey
    Professor Plum: John Cleese
    Mr. Green: Jim Carrey
    Mr. Body: Robert Downey, Jr.

    The Clue movie that was already made wasn't bad. The alternate endings made too many people feel like they didn't see the best ending though.

    I wouldn't even mess with Clue. Better idea would have Ricky Gervais draft a takeoff of one of those Agatha Christie drawing room mysteries. Or even get the Coen Brothers to do a mashup of a Christie murder weekend/wedding weekend romcom.

    They have some battleships sitting in harbors as museum ships. A couple actually served in the first Persian Gulf War though.

    My god, that's almost perfect. I hate Jim Carrey, so I vote against him, but I don't really have a better suggestion.

    You can't remake Clue. They caught lightning in a bottle the first time (shut up!) and no one could come close to being as good as Madeline Kahn as Mrs. White. She absolutely made that movie.
