McG (Terminator Salvation) has won the contest to direct Ouija for Universal and is now in negotiations.

McG beat rival director Breck Eisner (The Crazies) who was also in contention.

Plot details on Universal’s planned adaptation of the classic Hasbro board game about conjuring up spirits of the dead are being kept under wraps, although it’s been described as a four-quadrant supernatural adventure centering around a family.

McG’s latest film, This Means War, starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy will be released later this year.

THR reported this story.
