Universal Picture has yet to choose a director to develop their new Quija movie, based on the classic board game from hell. It looks like it's down to two individuals... McG (Terminator Salvation) and Breck Eisner (The Crazies). Both directors recently made their pitch to the studio from a script written by Tron: Legacy scribes Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
Personally, I'd like to see the film project go to Eisner. I think McG is a terrible director, and I loved what Eisner did with The Crazies remake, he seems like a more talented storyteller. McG is a good pitch guy though, and he has the power to get people excited. If you recall he got a lot of us excited for Terminator Salvation, as it turned out he got us all excited for a piece of crap. I'll never fall for McG's fake trickery again.
We have no idea what Ouija will be about, but the last we heard it wasn't going to be a scary horror film, which is what I think most of us accepted. This will be more on an Indiana Jones type adventure story.
I'm sure the studio will reveal their decision sometime after the holidays. Maybe the studio executives should ask the Ouija Board who should direct the film?
Who would you like to see direct this Quija Board film? McG or Eisner?
