Universal in negotiations with helmer on supernatural pic

McG is in talks to helm the supernatural action adventure “Ouija” for Universal Pictures.

Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are penning the script, with Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir producing along with Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.

Pic is based on the Hasbro game of the same name. Plot details are being kept under wraps; production will begin later this year with a release date set for Nov. 9, 2012.

“Ouija” will be the second pic go into production under U’s deal with Hasbro. “Battleship” was the first and is set to bow on May 18, 2012.
