Ouija, the supernatural board game that’s being turned into an action-adventure by McG (Terminator Salvation) and Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes, is getting a boost from Simon Kinberg, reports the LA Times.
The A-list Hollywood writer — he’s written scripts for Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Sherlock Holmes, among others — is coming on to do a polish of the script for the Universal film. (A previous version was written by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, veterans of “Lost” who also wrote Tron: Legacy.) Universal confirmed the hire.
The move does offer an interesting window into the direction of the film. Although some were quick to assume the movie would have a supernatural bent, Kinberg’s specialty is big, upscale — and sometimes comedic — action pieces.
