Choose Your Own Adventure Lands Director Rawson Marshall Thurber

Choose Your Own Adventure Lands Director Rawson Marshall Thurber

Image NEISfuuVNSQONK_2_zzb.jpgRawson Marshall Thurber has closed a deal to direct 20th Century Fox’s Choose Your Own Adventure adaptation, with writers Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant finalizing a deal to write the screenplay adaptation. However, it isn’t known which of the stories they plan on adapting from the 180-book catalog.We first reported on the project back in June, when 20th Century Fox and producers John Davis and John Fox acquired the massive library of titles, which spans all genres from mysteries (Who Killed Harlowe Thrombey?) to Westerns (Deadwood City) to espionage (Your Code Name Is Jonah) to outer space (Space and Beyond).The concept for the novels was created in 1975 by Edward Packard and R.A. Montgomery, which allowed the reader to select which path they wanted the story to take, with most decisions leading to the success or ultimate demise of the protagonist. The series took off in popularity when Bantam Books bought the series in the late 1970s. The books were published through the late 1990s, with over 250 million books sold worldwide.The task ahead of screenwriters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, who are best known for the Night at the Museum franchise and for creating Comedy Central’s Reno 911!, is a daunting one, since one would expect a Choose Your Own Adventure movie would allow viewers themselves to decide which way the story should go. However, how would that work in a theatrical environment, with hundreds of different patrons watching the same movie at once? Only time will tell.John Davis and John Fox are producing with Daniela Taplin Lundberg and Damien Saccani serving as executive producers. No shooting schedule was released at this time.Rawson Marshall Thurber made his directorial debut with the 2004 comedy Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, which he followed up with this year’s box office hit We’re the Millers. Choose Your Own Adventure comes to theaters in 2014. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber.

Cute! Aubrey Anderson-Emmons Wears Tea Collection to SAG Awards

Cute! Aubrey Anderson-Emmons Wears Tea Collection to SAG Awards

If it isn’t broke, then don’t fix it.

At least that seems to be the thinking behind Modern Family‘s Aubrey Anderson-Emmons‘s red carpet looks.

Just like at the 2012 Emmy Awards, the actress (who plays Lily on the hit show) chose a custom Tea Collection dress for this year’s SAG Awards.

Created by Emily Meyer, the company’s chief creative officer and co-founder, the ruffled modern shift was made with a two-tone iridescent satin in a rich orchid so Anderson-Emmons could make a mini fashion statement while looking age appropriate.

It also must be a lucky color for the sitcom’s cast. They won Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
