Michael Bay, director of 'Transformers', has signed a deal with toy makers Hasbro to co-produce 'Ouija'. A new thriller/horror based on the popular board game. The project is set up at Universal, where Hasbro has a six-year strategic partnership.
Platinum Dunes' Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce Ouija along with Hasbro.
Although the specific log line for the film is being kept under wraps, the film will be a supernatural adventure with the Ouija board playing an integral part of the story. The movie is not taking a Jumanji-like approach, which involved a game coming to life.
Bay is currently producing 'Unborn' and 'Friday the 13th'.
