OUIJA Goes To McG!
After pitching their ideas for the film just a week apart from each other, OUIJA has selected McG over Breck Eisner (The Crazies) to direct the new picture for Universal!
Based around the Hasbro board game that allows participants to communicate with spirits of the dead, Ouija had a difficult time finding a suitable person to take control over the project. Before the holiday’s, McG presented his idea to the powers that be at Universal complete with a script written by Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, and production by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.
Universal said yes to McG and he is now in negotiations for Ouija. The details of the plot are being hidden, but Ouija has been described as a supernatural adventure along the lines of The Mummy and Indiana Jones.
I was surprised to find that they weren’t going to move towards the horror genre based on the Ouija board’s purpose, but none the less I’m excited to see what McG comes up with!
