20th Century Fox to Make "Choose Your Own Adventure" Movie

Posted: June 11th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
20th Century Fox to Make "Choose Your Own Adventure" MovieSubmit Comment
20th Century Fox and producer John Davis (Predator, I Robot) are nearing a deal to acquire the rights to a series of book, called "Choose Your Own Adventure," which allowed readers to choose the path of the characters every few pages, with the decision leading to different fates.

The concept came from Edward Packard, who tried and failed several times to get a book off the ground. In 1975, he partnered with RA Montgomery, then an aspiring author and publisher. The initial books had modest sales, and it wasn't until Montgomery made a deal with Bantam Books in the late 1970s that the series became a huge hit, inciting spin-offs and imitators.

The books lasted until the late 1990s, with over 180 titles and 250 million units sold worldwide.

Fox will have all screen rights to the property and will be able to adapt it for multiple platforms. It's not clear how a film based on the concept would work, but there's definite potential for home entertainment. Stay tuned.

They should adapt The Three Investigators instead.

If it has Emma Roberts being cute in it, I'll watch it. She was absolutely adorable in a non-sexual way as Nancy Drew.

I remember reading these things. I also remember them not being very good. The covers, titles and concept were neat though.
