We're the Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber is set to develop the big screen adaptation of the classic Choose Your Own Adventure book series. The script will come from Night at the Museum screenwriters Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon.
The books were known for their stacked storytelling, which allowed readers to choose the path of the characters every few pages. The choices the reader made lead the characters to different fates, good and bad. 180 books were written for the series.
There's no information on what the story for the film will be about, but there is a ton of material to choose from! The fun thing about the books was the whole aspect of letting the reader make decisions on the direction they wanted to take the story, but a film takes that gimmick out of the equation, so I'm not sure what will make this movie really different from anything else. The stories that the books told may have been mediocre, but they were still fun.
If they develop a solid first movie, the studio could have a successful franchise to work with.
