Director, producer and writer McG will be directing Ouija, a movie centering around the supernatural and evoking spirits from the dead.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Plot details are kept under wraps although it’s described as a four-quadrant supernatural adventure centering around a family, with influences from The Mummy and Indiana Jones.”
Director McG was vying for the gig against The Crazies director Breck Eisner and was chosen after the film’s tough search for a director. The film, based on the Hasbro board game, will be produced by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.
McG’s proposition to Universal to direct the movie included a script by Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
McG has directed movies We Are Marshall and Terminator Salvation. McG’s This Means War is in post-production starring Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine.
