Ouija Board, Michael Bay

Michael Bay sees dead people.

The Armageddon director is planning to summon up a feature film based on Hasbro's supernatural Ouija board game.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Bay and scribe David Berenbaum (Elf) have set up the movie at Universal as part of the studio's whopping six-year megadeal with the toy giant.

No word yet on the Ouija, but we're asking the spirits to make sure the flick won't take its cues from Tawny Kitaen's 1986 campy thriller Witchboard.

Hasbro conjured up its take on the legendary divination method in 1966 and has since sold millions of the board game.

Bay's production company, Platinum Dunes, has become a big player in the horror genre, with recent remakes of The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hitcher. Bay's redo of Friday the 13th is currently shooting for a 2009 release.

Additional projects in the pipeline include a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and an updated version of Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street.
