Polygon reveals why the Monkey Island movie was cancelled
It is quite well known that at some point in time there were plans for a Monkey Island movie called The Curse of Monkey Island. Several concept art images were even reveled and added as a bonus feature to the Monkey Island 2 Special Edition.
The website Polygon has published an article where it reveals how it all happened and why this movie was cancelled.
"[We] flew down to Amblin with Patty Blau and we met with Steven [Spielberg],” says Carson. “The first thing he said to me was, ‘I told George [Lucas] years ago that he should make Monkey Island into a film,’ so I knew I had a pretty easy pitch ahead of me."
The article is really worth reading as it contains important details never disclosed about a movie that never saw the light of day.
