The L.A. Times
While we’re still of the mindset that nothing made by Parker Brothers can actually contact the dead on the other side, we’re still really interested in seeing just where the hell a movie based upon a board game is going to go.
According to the L.A. Times Ouija, the supernatural board game that’s being turned into an action-adventure by McG (Terminator Salvation) and Michael Bay’s production company, is getting a boost from Simon Kinberg, the A-list Hollywood writer — he’s written scripts for Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Sherlock Holmes, among others.
Kinberg is coming on to do a polish of the script for the Universal film, according to two sources with knowledge of the project who asked not to be identified. (A previous version was written by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, veterans of “Lost” who also wrote Tron: Legacy). Universal confirmed the hire.
Ouija is slated to be in theatres on November 9, 2012.
