Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner caught up with the Hollywood Reporter to talk about their many toy-to-film franchises, one of which was an update to Universal Pictures’ Ouija that was to be directed by McG.
On Ouija, he drew a comparison to Walt Disney’s recent decision to restructure the budget for The Lone Ranger. That is “the same process we have gone through on the Ouija brand,” although at a lower level of spending, he said. Goldner added that the script is in good shape and is being polished now, meaning that the film could be back with a studio shortly.
Simon Kinberg, Evan Spiliotopoulos and Edward Kitsis has previously been working on the screenplay with a November 2012 release planned. That will change. Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes produces the action-adventure horror story in which a group of twenty-somethings violate all the mythic “don’ts” of the Ouija board and unleash a Pandora’s Box type of evil spirit bent on revenge.
