McG and Breck Eisner Circling Universal's 'Ouija' Adventure Film

Though we heard that Taken director Pierre Morel might venture into the supernatural with Universal's adaptation of the Ouija "board game," the filmmaker has since moved on to potentially take on the Sam Raimi produced Earth Defense Force. Now we have word that two frontrunners to direct the project with a script from Tron Legacy screenwriters that veers away from the expected horror treatment of the board and moves into action adventure territory akin to National Treasure. Heat Vision says McG (Terminator Salvation) and Breck Eisner (The Crazies) are the two names who are pitching their take on the Hasbro property to the studio.

Though the plot of the story itself is being kept underwraps, it apparently involves a family getting caught up in a supernatural adventure with flares of The Mummy and Indiana Jones. With a release date already set for November 9, 2012, the studio is eager to set a director as soon as possible, but the process has been an arduous one. Not only did Morel not make the cut, but directors like Sylvain White (The Losers), John Moore (Max Payne) and Scott Stewart (Legion) have already been passed over after their studio presentations didn't instill a lot of confidence. Personally, I'd rather see Breck Eisner tackle any project instead of McG any day. How about you?

what on Dec 20, 2010


This is really a bad idea! I actually bought a Ouija board game and then I had a string of really bad lucks in one week such as auto accident and had an electrical fire in my home but thankfully it was in one room. The next thing is I immediately threw away the Ouija board. And no more bad lucks. Remember, Paranormal Activity? They had a Ouija and bad things happen. It supposedly opens doors to some mysterious evil force. Don't call me crazy! OK? Maybe it was a coincedence, but..........
