Yeah, we already had a little chat about the upcoming mysterious Universal’s adaptation titled Ouija.
That means you’re familiar with the fact that director Breck Eisner (The Crazies) was also in contention for directing the movie that has been described as “a four-quadrant supernatural adventure centering around a family…”
Let us remind you that Ouija made its debut in 1966, selling over 12 million copies for Parker Brothers. Hasbro acquired the game in 1991:
“A Ouija board, also known as a spirit board or talking board, is a flat board marked with letters, numbers, and other symbols, supposedly used to communicate with spirits. It uses a planchette (small heart-shaped piece of wood) or movable indicator to indicate the spirit’s message by spelling it out on the board during a séance.
The fingers of the séance participants are placed on the planchette, which then moves about the board to spell out messages.”
Ouija is penned by Tron: Legacy writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis and follows Peter Berg’s Battleship as the next Hasbro branded property to move into production.
Directors for the big-scale movie have been circling it since October and production will begin by the summer to meet a November 12, 2012 release.
