'We're the Millers' Director Will 'Choose Your Own Adventure' at Fox
After delivering last year's comedy hit We're the Millers, director Rawson Thurber Marshall is heading towards adventure for his next project. We already learned last June that 20th Century Fox was looking to bring the flare of Edward Packard and R.A. Montgomery's Choose Your Own Adventure series to the big screen with 180 titles to draw from for inspiration. Now THR has word that Thurber will direct the adaptation, and Fox's Night at the Museum writing duo Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant in final negotiations to write the film. But the question still remains, just how will a film will adapt the books?
Well, it's still not clear just how Lennon and Garant will adapt the material, but we hope it incorporates a variety of different settings. After all, the books catered to all different genres from adventures to mysteries in various locations from Earth to outer space, and time periods from the Wild West to the distant future. There's something for everyone. Garant and Lennon are skilled with making entertaining but family friendly action adventures, so hopefully they can do the same with this. And with a more adult comedy oriented director involved, maybe we'll have something as clever and fun as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
