Universal has put its adaptation of the Hasbro board game OUIJA into turnaround, reports Vulture. The project has McG attached as director and Michael Bay as producer. Simon Kinberg (SHERLOCK HOLMES) penned the most recent version of the script. Bay and McG will start talking to other studios next week.

Three weeks ago the studio dropped the CLUE adaptation. Universal signed a big licensing deal with Hasbro in 2008. As part of that deal, Universal will have to pay Hasbro $5 million for dropping OUIJA project. Universal still has CANDY LAND and STRETCH ARMSTRONG in development and BATTLESHIP will hit theaters next summer.
