Is Blumhouse partnering with the toy-maker Mattel to make a feature film out of the company’s Magic 8-Ball product? Signs point to yes, according to Deadline! Jeff Wadlow, who spun up a whole movie for Blumhouse out of the game Truth or Dare last year, will direct and write the script with Jillian Jacobs and Chris Roach, whom he collaborated with on the screenplay for his last game-based Blumhouse picture. Wadlow is coming off a winner for the studio, with Truth or Dare bringing in almost $100 million worldwide after being produced for a lean budget, in accordance with the Blumhouse way. So, better throw your 8-Ball on the trash pile with your Ouija boards now.
