Ouija Points to Lots of Directing Talent
Who would have thought a little movie based upon a Parker Brothers board game that supposedly enables you to communicate with the dead could cause such a stir in Hollywood!
According to Deadline New York three candidates in the mix for the directing gig at the moment are front-runner and Taken helmer Pierre Morel, The Losers helmer Sylvain White, and even Scott Stewart (Legion Priest).
From a previous report ...
While the Ouija movie could be a traditional horror picture (think pretty young things haunted by strange occurrences on a creepy sleepover), it's actually being developed as an action-adventure in the vein of National Treasure. Michael Bay's production company, Platinum Dunes, and several "Lost" writers are behind it. The Morel discussions underscore the adventure scope of the film; the director's 2009 phenomenon had plenty of high-speed chases and action.
Look for more soon.
