|Rihanna will make her big screen|
debut in 2012's Battleship
The rights to several board games such as Battleship, Candy Land and Monopoly have recently been snatched up. Battleship is currently filming with stars Rihanna and Taylor Kitsch, and even the Ouija Board is being developed into a film. But the board game movie trend has definitely reached its strangest this week with the announcement that a Rubik's Cube movie is in the works.
At least most of the previous purchases have made some sort of sense: games like Candy Land have a mythology and plot behind them already, and even the Ouija Board can easily be made into your standard ghost flick. But Rubik's Cube? Might as well cook up Hopscotch: The Movie next.
