Screenwriter Marti Noxon (Fright Night, I Am Number Four) has signed on to write Ouija for Hasbro.
Screenwriter Marti Noxon says yes to Ouija
We reported in August that Universal Pictures had dropped the project, but Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner revealed last month that the toy company is still actively developing Ouija. Hasbro made a similar move in September, hiring Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski to write Monopoly, another project which Universal dropped.
Brian Goldner said last month he expects to find a new studio home for Ouija fairly soon. The story centers on a family trying deal with a chaotic supernatural event which is unleashed through the board game.
