‘Ouija’ Board Not Happy McG Will Direct

My Ouija board just spelled out the word “lame” after reading that McG (Terminator Salvation) is in early negotiations to direct the live-action adaptation of Hasbro’s popular board game (that never works). Scripted by Tron: Legacy writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis (another bad sign), the film is being produced by Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir along with Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Production will begin by the summer, for release November 12, 2012 from Universal Pictures. Ouija, launched by Parker Brothers in 1966, has sold over 12 million copies. Hasbro acquired it in 1991. I really would have liked to see Breck Eisner (The Crazies) direct.
