Polygon reveals why the Monkey Island movie was cancelled

Why was the Monkey Island movie 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.
