Terminator Salvation’s McG set to direct Universal Picture’s Ouija board film

06 January 2011

Universal Pictures is officially in talks with McG to direct Ouija, an adventure movie based on the Hasbro toy.

The director of Terminator Salvation and Charlie's Angels was on the shortlist of names vying for the big-budget film alongside Breck Eisner (The Crazies), Sylvian White (The Losers), Scott Stewart (Priest), and, briefly, Pierre Morel (Taken).

Ouija will not take the expect supernatural horror angle - strange consider Michael Bay's horror house Platinum Dunes is producing - but will follow a more Indiana Jones type journey to discovery.

McG recently completed work on the comedy This Means War with Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy, and Chris Pine, which we're looking forward to hitting UK cinemas later this year.
