Choose Your Own Adventure Books To Become Movies. HOW???

| Filed under: Film FlickersWacky, Tacky & TrueTech Talk

choose your own adventure books to become movies

Sure, we all grew up on these or the Goosebumps ones but are we going to ruin the nostalgia by bringing these to theaters?

Red Crown Productions has made a deal with Choose Your Own Adventure series publisher Chooseco to make the series into films.

These books were awesome because they were interactive. How would they pull that off on-screen though?

We suppose there are some approaches they COULD take, such as:

-Show multiple outcomes of on-screen courses of action, like how they did it in Run Lola Run

-Use self-referential humor as a technique to move the story along

-Allow audiences to vote on key scenes BEFORE the movie is even made

-Avoid AT ALL COSTS any techniques used in 1995's interactive Mr. Payback, where audiences used joysticks to vote on the action

Guess we'll see what approach they end up taking. This could be cool if they're smart about it, or it could be REALLY, REALLY bad.

Would U like to re-live your childhood with Choose Your Own Adventure movies?

    Actually, your last option is the only true one that can work successfully for this. They already did a Choose your own Adventure style movie a couple years ago I think. (Frankie Muniz did the voice or something for one of the characters… too lazy myself to check this out at the moment.
    Anyhow, as a direct to video movie this would work great, and allow individual users the ability to chose the flow of the movie.

    Or you could, you know, actually READ A BOOK.

    They should do it like they the movie "CLUE" shoot the whole movie and then for the endings, shoot 2 or 3 of them and then edit them and have a different ending in each theatre. that way everyone is surprised and you never know what ending you're going to get. it worked for "CLUE."

    It'll likely be a direct to DVD movie so people at home can just use the remote to pick what they want.

    Well if the hero dies because he took a wrong turn in a cave and got eaten by a bear, we can just flip back to the last page (well, scene) and continue from there. Oh come on, everyone cheated these books ;)

    they did this with dvds and laser discs before, furthermore something similar was tried out in theaters like this about 10 years ago
