Bates Motel's Olivia Cooke is Ready to Play Ouija

December 6, 2013


Fans of A&E's "Bates Motel" will recognize today's latest addition to the cast of director Stiles White's Ouija. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that actress Olivia Cooke has joined the cast opposite the previously-announced Douglas Smith and Daren Kagasoff.

Originally conceived as a big-budget adventure movie, Ouija, naturally, takes its cue from the Hasbro "game" of the same name. The project saw its beginnings at Universal, but it moved to Paramount where McG was attached to helm. Earlier this year, however, the movie reverted back to Universal with Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity), Platinum Dunes (Friday the 13th) and Hasbro (Transformers, Battleship) producing.

The script, written by White and Juliet Snowden, follows a group of high school students after the death of a girl at their school. Cookie will play the a friend, who discovers that the deceased had been playing with a Ouija board shortly before she died.

Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing the horror movie via their Platinum Dunes shingle along with Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro.
