Yes, you read the headline correctly. They are indeed working on a movie based around the Choose Your Own Adventure books that some of you may remember from your childhood. And while the details are as of yet unknown, the project does have a scriptwriting team and a director almost ready to go. For all the details, scroll to page 2. To ignore this news, close browser.
So far, the only person to put pen to paper is Rawson Marshall Thurber, director of the recent Jennifer Aniston’s boobs-starring movie, We’re the Millers. As far as an actual script goes, they’re looking to Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, writers perhaps best known for Night at the Museum and Reno 911.
How the crap they’re going to take a set of mediocre stories and a gimmick and turn them into actual film material remains to be seen. Needless to say, I’ll be avoiding this one like the plague.
Thanks to Topless Robot for the warning.
