McG will direct <strong><em>Ouija</em></strong> for Universal Pictures
McG has entered into negotiations to direct Ouija for Universal Pictures, just a few weeks after we reported the director pitched his own vision for the movie to the studio.

The Crazies director Breck Eisner was also in the running to direct, having presented his proposal for Ouija a week before McG. Tron: Legacy screenwriters Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis wrote the script, based off the popular Hasbro board game.

Little is known about the story line, although it was said to blend elements from The Mummy and Indiana Jones while centering on a family.

Michael Bay's production company Platinum Dunes is behind the project, although it isn't clear when Ouija will go into production. A November 9, 2012 release date has already been set by Universal.
