‘Brewster’s Millions’ To Get Yet Another Movie Treatment
  |  @   |  

It’s being reported that Warner Brothers have hired Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan to write a script based on the 1902 George Barr McCutcheon novel, Brewster’s Millions.

The concept for Brewster’s Millions is simple and really brilliant, yet incredibly complicated at the same time. Basically, it tells the story of a man who finds out that his super wealthy relative has passed away and left him a challenge which could see him inherit a massive fortune.

The challenge varied from movie to movie (seven movies before this eighth, to be exact), but the best-known is from the 1985 version that starred late greats Richard Pryor and John Candy. In this version, Monty (Pryor) is offered the chance to receive $300 Million, if he is able to successfully spend $30 Million within 30 days. This sounds easy at first, but there are some catches: mainly, he can’t own one possession when the money is spent, and he can’t just buy insanely expensive objects and destroy them, along with some other rules.

Diliberti and Sullivan seem to have a comedy background, so we can expect that this new take will definitely be like the Pryor version; let’s just hope it’s not a hollow and stupid comedy. With just a little love and care, Brewster’s Millions is one of those concepts that can always work.
