TAKEN Director Could Direct OUIJA
Pierre Morel director of Taken is in the running to direct the Platinum Dunes film OUIJA. The film is still in the VERY preliminary stages, and Morel is one of several directors that are being looked for the project.
We all know the premise of the “game” ouija: a group of friends sit around the ouija board and lightly rest their fingers on the planchette (for those of you that don’t speak occult that’s the plastic triangle looking thing that points to the letters). One person from the group asks the board questions, and the “mystifying oracle”, guided by the spirit world, will answer the questions for you.
The film Ouija could be translated into a traditional horror movie based on the purpose of a ouija board, but it looks like with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes producing, and several Lost writers behind the project, that it may take shape to be an action-adventure film much like National Treasure.
Morel is currently working on the Dune reboot, and like we said the discussions for Ouija are still preliminary, but with Universal Hasbro pushing Stretch Armstrong to 2013, Ouija may be into production sooner!
