Universal execs have some homework over the holidays: picking a director for Ouija, the studio’s planned film adaptation of the classic Hasbro board game about conjuring up spirits of the dead, reports Heat Vision. Director McG (Terminator Salvation) on Friday afternoon presented to Universal execs his vision for the project, which has a script by Tron Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and is being produced by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. McG, who is back in town after wrapping Fox’s This Means War in Vancouver, is vying for the gig against The Crazies director Breck Eisner (a much better decision), who pitched his take on the material the previous week. Not much is known about the plot of Ouija, although it’s described as a four-quadrant supernatural adventure centering around a family, with influences from The Mummy and Indiana Jones. The site adds that Sylvain White (The Losers), Pierre Morel (Taken), Scott Stewart (Legion) and John Moore (Max Payne) all lost out on the gig.
