According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peter Berg is currently talking to Universal about helming the big-screen version of the Hasbro board game, Battleship.

Currently, Jon and Erich Hoeber inked a deal to write the script.

The game follows two players who arrange multiple ships on a grid. The game then has various attacks as players do their best to "sink" the other side's ships by trying to guess where they are on the grid.

Universal hopes to turn the film into an epic naval action adventure.
