McG will channel a “Ouija” movie for Universal


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The trend of remaking classic board games into bigger-budget Hollywood productions looks to continue in 2011 and beyond.

We’re already bracing ourselves for “Battleship,” directed by Peter Berg (“Hancock,” “Friday Night Lights”). Ridley Scott had been circling a “Monopoly” movie before he got pulled back into the “Alien” realm. “Clue” and “Candyland” are other games looking to make the leap to the big screen (or back to the big screen, in the case of “Clue”).

Beyond that? It seems like a “Ouija” movie in the near future. And this morning, it is being reported that “Charlie’s Angels” and “Terminator Salvation” helmer McG will direct the picture for Universal. THR reports that McG beat out Breck Eisner (“The Crazies”), and will direct from a script by “Tron: Legacy” co-screenwriters Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

This is interesting, though. Instead of being a straight-up horror, which is what a Ouija board movie would suggest, THR says this story would center around an adventurous family and have more in common with “The Mummy” or the “Indiana Jones” franchise than with “The Ring.”

More on “Ouija” as it develops.
