I wonder if anyone predicted this? 'Ouija,' an adaptation of the Hasbro board game that was to be produced by Michael Bay and directed by McG, has been put in turnaround by Universal.
This is the fourth Hasbro film that the studio has cut loose recently -- and the second in a month. 'Monopoly,' 'Magic the Gathering' and most recently 'Clue' all got pink slips.
As you'll recall, Universal went game crazy in 2008, signing a deal with Hasbro to adapt such family play staples as 'Candy Land,' 'Stretch Armstrong,' 'Battleship' and the aforementioned 'Monopoly' and 'Clue' (which has already had a previous, God-awful incarnation in 1985).
