With a script from from "Air Force One" screenwriter and "Castle" executive producer Andrew Marlowe, the project drew the attention of Warner Bros. who entered negotiations for the rights and later, Pierre Morel, leaving the stalled "Dune" project, circled the director's chair.

Pierre Morel can't seem to catch a break lately. This month alone he's left two major projects, the running-out-of-time "Dune" currently set up at Paramount (where they are considering putting the albatross into turnaround) and Universal's big screen adaptation of the drunken Halloween board game thingy "Ouija." But in his back pocket has always been another project and it looks like it's picking up some momentum.

Morel Could Also Direct The Sam Raimi-Produced 'Earth Defense Force' Sci-Fi FilmLate last month it was reported three directors were circling Hasbro's "Ouija Board: The Movie” (or just "Ouija," but we find it funnier the other way), "Legion" FX guy Scott Stewart, Sylvain White (“Stomp The Yard," “The Losers”) and French B-thriller filmmaker Pierre Morel ("Taken"), who recently bailed on the long-gestating adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi book, "Dune."
