It was revealed last summer that there were plans to adapt the Choose Your Own Adventure series of books into a movie. It wasn't clear which of the many books in the series - there ended up being over 150 of them - would be centred on, nor how the adventure choosing gimmick would translate to the big screen. Yet we might just be finding out soon: it turns out that this is very much an active project.

Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon - who penned the Night At The Museum movies and are also working on the new Naked Gun film - have been hired to oversee the script (and have been involved for a while). And now it's been revealed that Rawson Marshall Thurber - he of Dodgeball and We're The Millers fame - is set to direct.

Now if some enterprising British studio fancies taking a stab at the Fighting Fantasy books too, that'll make for a very satisfactory Wednesday, thank you very much...
