Peter Berg Sank My “Battleship”

Peter Berg (“The Rundown,” “Hancock”) is in talks to direct a big-screen version of classic Hasbro board game “Battleship” for Universal Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jon and Erich Hoeber (“Whiteout,” “Red”) will pen the script for “an epic naval action adventure” though plot details are being kept underwraps.

Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir are producing. The film joins the likes of “Monopoly,” “Candy Land” and “Ouija Board” as other classic board games becoming films.
