Risk is one of the most classical board games, and given all what has been adapted in the past years, why would Risk also get a movie?
According to Deadline, Sony Picture has set John Hlavin to write Risk, for a project being produced by Will Smith collaborators Overbrook Entertainment.
This is not the first board game changed to movie. Hasbro board game adaptations– like Battleship and Candyland have been set up at Universal. We can start and speculate a possible involvement of Smith in the movie.
Battleship opens on May 18 next year, and if it does well, Risk will make sure to be next in line.
