The film industry’s still banking on audiences not being bored with board-game adaptations, sinking time and money into elaborate productions of Battleship, Risk and a rumored Monopoly movie. Now another Hasbro-by-way-of-Hollywood project is aligning its stars as it prepares for a future shoot.

Screenwriter Simon Kinberg, whose credits include X-Men: The Last Stand and Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, has been hired by Universal to “polish” the existing script for a Ouija Board film, the L.A. Times reports. Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, who helped pen Disney’s Tron: Legacy, wrote the initial draft, which at the time drew comparisons to an Indiana Jones-style adventure with big action set pieces.

Hiring Kinberg, then, makes sense, as he brought that kind of large-scale thinking to Holmes and Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. It’s worth noting, too, that the Ouija feature is being mounted by McG and Michael Bay's production company, which doesn’t suggest a quiet character study about reserved board-game players. We’ll see what Kinberg brings to the table once Ouija moves a few steps closer to becoming a reality.
