Sony’s TriStar Pictures and Sony Pictures Television have secured rights from Hasbro Entertainment to develop film and television adaptations of the classic board game Clue. Announced as part of a strategic move to leverage its iconic games, Hasbro is collaborating with Sony to translate Clue’s mystery-solving gameplay into compelling visual narratives.

Clue, also known as Cluedo outside the United States, involves players solving a murder mystery by identifying the murderer, the location of the crime and the weapon used. The game was first introduced in 1943 by British designer Anthony E. Pratt and has maintained popularity through various adaptations, including a notable 1985 comedy film starring Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, and Christopher Lloyd.

The adaptation will be overseen by Hasbro’s heads of film and television, Zev Foreman and Gabriel Marano, who expressed confidence in Sony’s ability to adapt the game into a culturally significant film and TV series. The development teams are led by Nicole Brown and Katherine Pope at Sony, who are tasked with reimagining the classic game’s narrative for today’s audience.

While specific release dates for the film and TV adaptations have not been announced, the projects are currently in the developmental stages. Hasbro and Sony are working to provide updates as production progresses. This move is part of Hasbro’s broader strategy to expand its games into various media formats, including another upcoming film adaptation of Monopoly.
