Talk about ripped from the headlines. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are planning a new movie based on the McDonalds Monopoly scam that was revealed just last week.
A retired cop figured out how to scam himself $24 million from McDonald’s Monopoly game over a dozen years back in the 90s.
According to Deadline, 20th Century Fox is getting the rights and reuniting Affleck and Damon to star and produce, which they last did for Affleck’s Jersey Girl in 2004.
Reportedly Universal Pictures was also bidding for the film and would have put Kevin Hart in the lead, while Warner Bros. had been looking to use Steve Carell.
Have you won anything bigger than a free sandwich from the McDonalds Monopoly game? How about from the lottery or other games? Was it strategy or luck?
