20th Century Fox has decided who gets to pick what happens in Choose Your Own Adventure, giving the highest honor of 2nd grade reading time to Rawson Marshall Thurber. THR reports that the We're the Millers director has signed on to helm the adaptation of the beloved children's series that taught so many of us to prize novelty over narrative.
Fox also selected some writers and, like the book series itself so often did, they went with the two guys who do pretty much all this crap. The film will reportedly be written by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, the Night at the Museum and Herbie Fully Loaded writers whose in-development scripts include Baywatch and the Naked Gun remake. In retrospect, we probably should have seen that Choose Your Own Adventure ending coming. They are the painfully-inevitable "you fall down a hole and die" of screenwriters.
