Director McG, of Charlie’s Angels and Terminator Salvation fame, beat out The Crazies director Breck Eisner to lead Universal’s new project Ouija, based on the Hasbro board game.
McG’s vision features Tron:Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes had already signed to produce the flick. Although few plot details have been released, McG’s Ouija will be centered around a family. At least we know he learned something from supernatural adventure board game comes-to-life movie Jumanji.
Techland was right: all the board games you never expected to turn into movies are bound to do just that. What’s next, Mall Madness, directed by Steven Spielberg? (via The Hollywood Reporter)
