Love, Simon director to spearhead Choose Your Own Adventure Movie

20th Century Fox has stepped up its development for a Choose Your Own Adventure movie. 

Choose Your Own Adventure books created by Edward Packard and assisted by RA Montgomery arrived in the 1980s, the books allowed readers to determine the main character's actions and the plot's outcome. They have sold over 250 million copies over the years. 

The studio has been trying to develop the movie since 2013, trying to discover how they could include viewers to make the decision about where the story will go.

Now, they have agreed a deal with interactive film company Kino Industries to develop an app that should bring the essential element of the books to life. The idea being that audiences download the Kino app and vote to dictate where the story goes. 

Greg Berlanti, currently in cinemas with Love, Simon, has been put in charge of the development process alongside Sarah Schechter, John Davis and John Fox.
