Michael Bay Set To Adapt Ouija Board
I hate Michael Bay just as much as I hate the dead, those space consuming do-nothings. So what happens when you mix the two together? You get one pretty agitated guy sitting right here.
As part of Hasbro and Parker Brothers’ big plans for adapting a half dozen board games into movies (yes, you read that correctly) Ouija is up to bat for its big screen debut. One might ask, what kind of movie could you make about a piece of wood that sits on the floor and gets boring after about 30 seconds of arguing, “who is pushing it? Stop pushing it!” Lucky for you I have both answers, or maybe that’s unlucky for you.
Michael Bay’s “Platinum Dunes” movie label is set to adapt everyone’s
favorite only game for contacting the dead while David Berenbaum has signed on to write the screenplay. Berenbaum wrote “Elf” which wasn’t bad but wasn’t great either, so that’s not giving me a lot of confidence so far. And the plot?
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.
I’m wondering if they’ll backtrack on this one and make it exactly like Jumanji. I mean, how else can you really make a movie about a board game?
