The Ouija board movie will have action. I bet it's Michael Bay's fault.

04.26.2010

I found some new details on the Ouija movie!

Yes, they're still doing the Ouija movie. Are you surprised?

Back in 2008, we dispensed the news that a movie based on the popular "board game" would be coming and produced by the master of explosions, Michael Bay. It was also mentioned that it would not be like JUMANJI and David Berenbaum (ELF) would be writing the screenplay.

Brad Fueller, producer for the upcoming A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET gave an update on the untitled Ouija project to Bloody Disgusting, "‘Ouija’ isn’t really a horror movie per se, it’s definitely more of a big action-adventure movie along the lines of…I gotta be careful what I compare it to. But you know, it’s like a big action-adventure movie. And that script…I’ve read a couple pages of it, it seems good. I think we’re getting the full script in the next month. And that’s a very exciting project for it, cause it’s a much bigger movie, and it gives us an opportunity to try something we haven’t done before…There are definitely horror elements, because it’s about Ouija and what happens from an Ouija board, but it’s a much bigger film. I would call it an action-adventure with horror elements." I just want to point out that he said what he read of the script, "seemed good". When I read that it made me giggle a little. He could of just said, "Yeah, I couldn't continue reading the script. It's shit."

Awww, that was a little harsh. It could be good. ELF was fun...

Fueller also shared some info on two other remakes, MONSTER SQUAD and THE BIRDS, "We’re all systems go on ‘Monster Squad’. We’re meeting with writers every day on that, trying to pick a writer to write that…’The Birds’ we’re still trying to figure out."

Extra Tidbit: Since they feel the need to remake MONSTER SQUAD, who would you cast as the classic Monsters?

Wow they've stuck a goldmine here.

This movie is going to get all sorts (like Joblo readers) saying "Keep away from the Ouiji Boards. They be EVIL".

Great publicity. With any luck they'll get the Christian Fundies who hate Harry Potter raving too.

Sorry. Nope. It's rubbish.

Yes, I can back you up on that. I wouldn't touch a ouijia board with a 10 foot pole. If you don't know what you're doing, you're asking for trouble. And if you do know what you're doing, you're not using a ouijia board. I'm more of a tech guy with paranormal, but some of my closest friends are more into the spiritual end of things and ouijia boards are something they don't even want to be near. Just look up the story of the guy who invented them that I mentioned before. His life was fucked

Just look up the story of the guy who invented them that I mentioned before. His life was fucked after he created it. He lost everything; his family, his money (which is why he sold the rights to Parker bros.). I cringe when I see ouijia boards in the toy aisles of stores.

A Bad Idea

Damn, if this was a horror movie it would be a little more acceptable but I can't help but think that if the movie is geared towards children then we'll have more kids experimenting with Ouijia boards, which isn't a good idea, the handful of people I know who have messed with boards are completely fucked up now. Call me a crazy religious fanatic, but hopefully the Paranormal Investigator can back me up on this.

Eh. Being a paranormal investigator, I've heard a ton of things about ouija boards. What would have actually made a pretty damn interesting movie is something based on the life of the man who invented the ouija board back in the 1800s.

The line "script seemed good" gave me no hope to believe in this movie...at all. This movie is going to be so dumb and I am so amazed that there is actually going to be a movie about this.

I actually kind of liked Zathura. Anyways I always thought Witchboard was that, but it wouldnt be the first time they used old material. And if they remake The Birds I will will cry.
