‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ Movie Nabs a Director and Writing Duo

Bantam

We’ve known about the ‘Choose Your Own Adventure‘ movie for a while now, but we still have no idea what the heck this movie is going to be about. How do you adapt a series of completely unconnected interactive kids’ books for the big screen? That’s the big question, and, as of this moment, it remains unanswered. However, the film has hired writers and a director, whose past works give us a glimpse of the tone we can expect from the project.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rawson Marshall Thurber has signed on to direct the film, and the team of Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are in final talks to write the screenplay. Thurber directed last year’s smash hit ‘We’re the Millers‘ and 2004′s ‘Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story,’ while Lennon and Garant are the ever-busy duo behind the ‘Night at the Museum’ movies and other various family-friendly fair (and, once upon a time, ‘The State’ and ‘Reno 911′). In other words, ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ is undoubtedly going to be a comedy, but since everyone involved has leapt between kid-appropriate and truly raunchy material, the exact nature of the comedy is yet to be determined.

Considering the younger audience that the books were aimed at and their high-concept, genre-oriented stories, we imagine that ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ will probably be lighthearted and PG-rated, but with just enough of an edge to have the appearance of hipness. In other words, they hired the ‘Night at the Museum’ guys for a reason. Kids will love it, and parents will probably endure it with only a few bruises.
