After McG was announced as the director of Platinum Dunes’ Ouija, I’d wager just about everyone on the face of the planet let out a collective groan – Universal replaced Brett Ratner on The Wolfman after a huge online outcry, maybe we can pull it off again?
Word now comes that Evan Spiliotopoulos has been brought in to work on the script, which was written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (Tron: Legacy, Lost).
The curious thing about this is that aside from some trashy looking DTV and Made-For-TV films, Spiliotopoulos is known for working on high-profile DTV animated flicks, such as The Lion King 1 1/2, The Jungle Book 2, and Pooh’s Heffalump Movie. In his defense, he worked on scripts for Wanted 2 and Agnes Quill, though it remains to be seen how good those ended up being. Regardless, we’ll all see how it turns out next November.
