That's right, the Ouija Board movie is back on Universal's production slate after being dropped last August due to budgetary concerns!
Michael Bay is still producing through his Platinum Dunes banner (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Amityville Horror), but in order to scale down the massive
explosions and giant robot ghosts budget, the studio enlisted the help of the guy behind low-cost hits like Paranormal Activity and Insidious.
Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions has taken the cost from a whopping $100 million to a measly $5 million! Does that mean we're in store for another "found footage" film? Possibly about a couple curious kids playing the game and recording what happens…?
Sources say no, but we won't be surprised if that happens. We're just going to cross our fingers that this unnecessary adaptation becomes the Jumanji of horror movies when it hits theaters in 2013!
Are U happy that Universal decided to move ahead with this board-to-screen adaptation?
