Based on the popular board game, the film was originally set to be directed by McG, but was eventually scrapped in 2011 due to a ballooning $150 million budget. The cancellation forced Universal to pay a $5 million penalty to game maker Hasbro, who controls the movie rights. The new version will apparently go on without McG but will still have Michael Bay signed on as a producer.
While plot details for "Ouija" are scarce, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out the story. (For example: As a dare, a group of teenagers decides to play Ouija in a graveyard and accidentally raise the dead ... or something.)
"Ouija" will possess moviegoers sometime in 2013.
