(Release Date: April 14, 2017)

The movie is a total reboot most likely with female characters played by comedic actresses in the ghostbusting roles. The villain will be a convicted murderer, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by a supercharged electrical storm. This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history. Jillian Bell, Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer, Lizzy Kaplan and Cecily Strong mentioned for the ensemble.

The story follows a comedic, lovable loser who lives in Manhattan and works at a real estate company and he’s not very good at his job but he’s great at playing Monopoly. And the world record for playing is 70 straight days – over 1,600 hours – and he wanted to try to convince his friends to help him break that world record. They think he is crazy. They kid him about this girl and they're playing the game and there’s this big fight. And he’s holding a Chance card and after they’ve left he says, ‘Damn, I wanted to use that Chance card,’ and he throws it down. He falls asleep and then he wakes up in the morning and he’s holding the Chance card, and he thinks, ‘That’s odd.’ He’s all groggy and he goes down to buy some coffee and he reaches into his pocket and all he has is Monopoly money. All this Monopoly money pours out. He’s confused and embarrassed and the girl reaches across the counter and says, ‘That’s OK.’ And she gives him change in Monopoly money. He walks outside and he’s in this very vibrant place, Monopoly City, and he’s just come out of a Chance Shop. As it goes on, he takes on the evil Parker Brothers in the game of Monopoly. He has to defeat them. It tries to incorporate all the iconic imageries -- a sports car pulls up, there's someone on a horse, someone pushing a wheelbarrow -- and rich Uncle Pennybags, you're going to see him as the maĆ®tre d' at the restaurant and he's the buggy driver and the local eccentric and the doorman at the opera. There’s all these sight gags.

The new story is set against the backdrop of loggers cutting down a forest. Pete is a boy whose parents died in car crash, and has been subsequently raised by Elliot, the titular dragon in the threatened forest. Figuring into the proceedings are a forest ranger who finds the boy, the young daughter of the mill owner and the greedy brother of the mill owner. Filming will take place in Wellington, Wairarapa and Rotorua from January to April.
