Michael Bay is working on a film based on the supernatural Hasbro game
By CHARLENE CHENG, Contributing Writer
THE SKINNY: In a throwback to my 7th grade slumber parties, equal opportunity film-adapter Michael Bay is planning to dust off the old OUIJA BOARD and base a feature film on it. Michael Bay and David Berenbaum's Platinum Dunes is on board to produce, along with Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and OUIJA maker Hasbro. The project is set up at Universal, where Hasbro has a six-year strategic partnership. The film will be a supernatural adventure centering around the popular game. Having been around for centuries, OUIJA-type boards have been sold since the late 1800s. In the game, players' fingers are placed on a small piece that mysteriously moves to letters and numbers in order to spell out answers to questions asked by the participants. The board has been produced by Hasbro's Parker Brothers since 1966, scaring millions worldwide ever since.
