Monopoly, Candy Land Head to Hollywood
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
For our last word in business, we go back to the world of games - not video games but old-fashioned board games, which will become video soon. Last week, toy company Hasbro signed a deal with Universal Pictures. The movie studio plans to bring games like Monopoly and Candy Land to the silver screen. The first of these movies should be out in 2010. It's unclear what the plots will be, or if movies will still pretend to have plots in 2010.
And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
