Hancock helmer Peter Berg attached to helm Battleship
Hancock helmer Peter Berg is attached to direct Battleship, a live-action adaptation of Hasbro’s board game.
The deal is part of a two-picture pact Berg has made with the Universeal, where he’ll follow Battleship with the Afghan war drama Lone Survivor.
Berg called the film “a contemporary story of an international five-ship fleet engaged in a very dynamic, violent and intense battle.”
Other Hasbro adaptations in the works include Stretch Armstrong with Steve Oedekerk, Clue with Gore Verbinski, Monopoly with Ridley Scott, Candy Land with Kevin Lima and Ouija with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.
