Bates Motel's Olivia Cooke is the latest addition to the cast of Ouija set up with Platinum Dunes, Blumhouse Productions, and Hasbro. The film's been in the works for years with Universal dropping it from their slate of films set to go into production back in 2011 which prompted Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes to look elsewhere for a studio home. After a stint at Paramount with McG on board to direct, Ouija's back in the Universal Pictures fold with Stiles White (writer of The Possession, Knowing) attached to direct. White also co-wrote the script with Juliet Snowden.
Olivia Cooke's joining the cast which is led by Douglas Smith and includes Daren Kagasoff.
The film will follow a group of teens who try to make contact with one of their friends who died. Shooting will begin next week in LA.
