Hasbro Studios is teaming with Universal, Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes for a Ouija sequel.

The first movie, based on Hasbro's Ouija board, marked a departure for the studio from family friendly ventures like Transformers, Battleship and G.I. Joe.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Oculus director Mike Flanagan will step behind the camera for Ouija 2, which will follow a young girl grieving the death of her father.

“Producing a thriller like Ouija provided us with the opportunity to broaden the brand’s image and appeal, and ultimately reach an older demographic,” Executive VP/chief content officer at Hasbro, Stephen Davis, told ToyNews earlier this year.

“It lends itself to telling a different kind of story from our other brands, and let us deliver on the current trend of more suspenseful themes and scary stories that tweens and teens really gravitate to.”
