The story of Universal’s Ouija Board: The Movie has been quite an emotional roller coaster ride for all of us. When we first heard about it back in January of 2011, we were all on board. “Oh my goodness, a movie about the Ouija board? That sounds completely perfect and the best,” is what we all said. Then we got the terrible news that Universal had dropped the movie, and what were we even living for anyway at that point? And THEN we got the weird news that Hasboro was moving on with creating the movie themselves? And how were were supposed to feel about that But now our will to live is restored, because LOOOOK!!!!!!!! From The Wrap:
“Ouija,” a movie Universal ditched in August, has found a new incarnation at the studio, Universal said Monday.
The initial version of “Ouija” was to be a big-budget film. The new one will be a low-budget, high-concept suspense thriller with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions attached to produce.
The movie is slated for a 2013 release.
