Juliet Snowden and Stiles White were recently out promoting their latest scripted effort The Possession and they had time to discuss their upcoming directorial effort Ouija. Ouija is based on the popular Hasbro toy used for communicating with the dead. Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, Blumhouse Productions, and Hasbro are producing the low-budget film. Talking to Shock Till You Drop Snowden said:

It was originally a $100 million movie, now it’s a $5 million movie with us. Jason [Blum], Michael [Bay] and the Platinum Dunes guys, Universal and Hasbro – that’s a lot to answer to.

Back when the film was rumoured to have a budget of $100 million, there was talk of a heavy adventure aspect to the film. White was asked if the action elements were still in place.

For us, there was that version, but we’ve got Blum on board now, it’s going to be a smaller budget, a more contained idea. »
