David Berenbaum and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes have been brought on deck to bring Hasbro’s supernatural game “Ouija” to the big screen, says The Hollywood Reporter. The project is set up at Universal, where Hasbro has a six-year strategic partnership.
Platinum Dunes’ Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce Ouija along with Hasbro.
The film will be a supernatural adventure with the Ouija board playing an integral part of the story. The movie is not taking a Jumanji-like approach, which involved a game coming to life.
The board has been produced by Hasbro’s Parker Brothers since 1966, with millions being sold worldwide.
Berenbaum’s credits include Elf, The Spiderwick Chronicles, Zoom and The Haunted Mansion.
