Risk, the Classic Board Game, being Adapted for Film

Risk (game)

Risk, the classic game of global domination from Parker Brothers, is being adapted into a theatrical film. Columbia Pictures is developing an action thriller based on the game and has hired John Hlavin to write the screenplay.

Risk was originally released as a board game in 1957 as La Conquête du Monde ("The Conquest of the World") in France by Albert Lamorisse -- ironically, a filmmaker himself -- reaching the US two years later. Since then multiple variations have been released, including several electronic, the most recent probably being an app for the iPad.

We've spent many an hour playing Risk in days gone by, and are most interested in how a film adaption would play out (as it were).
