Universal Is Back On Board With The Creepiest Board Game Ever!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Ouija board

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…?

Filed under: Film Flickers

Is anybody really surprised?

After reports that the Universal film Ouija needed major work on its script, it looks the studio has decided to just drop the film entirely.

The movie had some major players behind it, as it was to be produced by Michael Bay and directed by McG. It was heading in the direction of a big budget film, but something went awry as it's now been scrapped.

The Teaser For Battleship Has Arrived!

ASkars and RiRi and aliens, oh my!

Check out the just-released teaser trailer for the latest movie based on a children's game, Battleship, which stars the aforementioned seksi actor and singer, alongside Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Josh Pence, and Brooklyn Decker (above)!

Seems like pretty standard-looking action movie, until an EFFING ALIEN SPACESHIP shows up to eff shiz up!

Can we get a WTF?! Seriously?

But hey - with a cast like this and the already evident pretty superb special effects, we'll most likely be tuning in!

What do U think?? Are U going to check out Battleship?

Shocker! Ouija Board Movie Needs Script Work

ouija board game movie needs a rewrite

Back in October, it looked like Universal's Ouija board movie was finally gaining some steam, but then once again nothing much happened with it.

Now, it looks like the movie is gaining steam once again needs some script work.

Universal has brought on Sherlock Holmes writer Simon Kinberg to polish the script, which had a previous draft written by Lost's Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.

Come on, Lost guys! You told us a six season epic tale that took us on a journey through time and alternate universes…yet you can't figure out an effective way to take on Ouija???

Ah well! Hopefully Simon can impress Universal with his new draft, so we can finally get to see the Ouija movie that we've been SO SO SO SO excited about for SUCH a long time!

…And then let's get going on Mouse Trap: The Movie next. LOLz.

What board game movie are U looking forward to seeing?

iPhone Game Angry Birds To Become An Animated Series. Why???

Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!Tech Talk

angry birds series in the works

Just think…in the near future, somebody will get paid thousands upon thousands of dollars to write shows based on an iPhone app. Don't we live in wonderful times?

According to Mikael Hed, the CEO of the company that created the Angry Birds iPhone app (Rovio Mobile), an animated series of the popular game is in the works.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"We have been looking at that for quite a while, and that is definitely one of my personal big focus areas right now — to work on broadcast content for 'Angry Birds."

Given the fact that the iPhone app has already been spun off into another game, an upcoming board game by Mattel, plush toys, and iPhone covers, we're thinking that an animated Angry Birds series is very likely to happen.

Personally, we've been seeing enough birds on TV lately, with all the bizarre reports of recent bird deaths.

…We're thinking we'll skip this one.

Would U watch an Angry Birds show? Or will U stick to the iPhone game?
