Ouija is the next board game movie in the making following right behind Peter Berg's May 18th, 2012 Battleship release. Universal has it's eyes on a few directors including Pierre Morel (Taken), Sylvain White (The Losers) and Scott Stewart (Priest). That's some big name candidates if you ask me!
Ouija is being produced by Hasbro's Brian Golldner and Bennett Schneir along with Platinum Dunes Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form with a projected budget of $80- $100 million. There is some sure power behind this film so it better be good! Ouija is written by Tron:Legacy scribes Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. Expect an announcement within the next two weeks on a director choice.
Production is set to start next summer for a Thanksgiving 2012 release.
The Universal Rob Letterman-directed, Taylor Lautner-attached Stretch Armstrong got pushed back and probably won't start until 2013.
