  • Oscar-winning Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are reuniting for a movie about a McDonald's Monopoly scam

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck likely hope their next film will not only pass Go, but collect more than $200.

Deadpool screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are attached to pen the script about a man who won the million dollar McDonald's Monopoly grand prize with the help of a criminal support system, but who was found out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Lining up to bid were Universal for Kevin Hart, Warner Bros for John Requa and Glenn Ficarra and Steve Carell and producer Andrew Lazar, and Netflix, which bid for producing partners Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless, Robert Downey Jr and Susan Downey, and Todd Phillips.

Sources said that bidding was ferocious for Maysh's "How An Ex-Cop Rigged McDonald's Monopoly Game And Stole Millions". The auction was handled by IPG's Joel Gotler, who repped Maysh. David Klawans is exec producing.

The true story follows the actions of ex-cop Jerome Jacobson between 1987-2001, where he scammed the fast-food chain after they introduced the game. The article tells the story of a Rhode Islander who received a check for one million dollars after collecting all of the Monopoly pieces in the long-running game that boasts odds of 1 in 250 million. The two men behind the camera were not from McDonald's. Jacobson worked as a security guard at the printing business responsible for providing the game to McDonald's and thus took advantage of his access to the rare winning pieces. He distributed them between 1995 and 2000 to a sprawling network of associates that included friends, in-laws, mobsters, psychics, strip club owners, and a family of Mormons.

Affleck and Damon of course came on the Hollywood scene together after starring in and writing Good Will Hunting, which earned the pair Oscars for Best Original Screenplay.
