‘Clue’ To Get New Film And TV Adaptations

Clue, the classic murder-mystery board game, will get new film and TV adaptations in a new deal between Hasbro Entertainment and Sony’s TriStar Pictures. A previous adaptation in 1985 attempted to bring the game to the big screen 39 years prior, but failed to break even.

The party game sees players assume the role of six suspects in a mansion attempting to find the cause of the victim’s death and the killer, with one player eventually revealed to be the true murderer. But who is the true murderer in Clue? Hasbro seems to imply that we’ll finally find out, saying that the film could “figure out after 75 years if it was Colonel Mustard in the conservatory with the candlestick.”

A remake was previously announced in 2011 with 20th Century Fox and had periodic updates up to 2022, but it seems like Clue is going back to the drawing board and reinventing the murder-mystery. While the 1985 film failed to achieve the success it intended, it later became a cult classic, and various shows go on to reference it.

Will we finally figure out who the killer is in the new Clue film and TV adaptations? The clues are hidden, for now.
