Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes and Blumhouse Productions are looking for actors to play the lead roles in a film based on Hasbro’s Ouija board game, reports Acting Auditions.
The thriller, from Universal Pictures, will follow a group of teens who attempt to make contact with a recently deceased classmate.
Ouija was initially a big budget family adventure but Universal Pictures put the project in turnaround back in August 2011 due to budget concerns.
But the project is now back in production with a streamlined budget and new screenplay.
Stiles White, the screenwriter behind Knowing and The Possession, is attached to direct with Insidious, Paranormal Activity and The Purge producer Jason Blum on producing duties.
