Michael Bay conjures 'Ouija' movie
Platinum Dunes working on film based on Hasbro game
David Berenbaum and Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes have been brought on deck to bring Hasbro's supernatural game "Ouija Board" to the big screen. The project is set up at Universal, where Hasbro has a six-year strategic partnership.
Platinum Dunes' Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce "Ouija" along with Hasbro.
Although the specific log line for the film is being kept under wraps, the film will be a supernatural adventure with the Ouija board playing an integral part of the story. The movie is not taking a "Jumanji"-like approach, which involved a game coming to life.

[Movies] Jumper Sequel Being Discussed
Posted by Ashish on 06.10.2008
Hayden is on board...
Hayden Christensen told The Toronto Star this week that discussions are ongoing about a sequel to Jumper.
"We're talking about it. I know that they're having those conversations, I hear about them."
Hayden also said that director Doug Liman always envisioned the film to be the first part of a trilogy.
Taosman;1181367; said:The first sucked!
Muck;1181596; said:It's a reboot rather than a sequel (think Batman Begins vs Batman & Robin).
Marvel has been unhappy with some of the earlier films based on their characters so they pulled back the rights so they could more directly control the direction of the films.
Hulk is being rebooted because Marvel wants to push it back in line with some of their other story lines. The goal is to create a number of solo supers films and then have the lines culminate with The Avengers movie a couple of years down the line.
That's why a certain character made a cameo after the credits in Iron Man (and why you see Captain America's shield on Stark's workbench) and why Stark/Iron Man is making a cameo in The Hulk...they want to tie it all together.
