Twentieth Century Fox on Thursday announced that it's partnering with interactive film company Kina Industries to
license an app that will allow movie audiences to control the storyline and characters in the upcoming film "Choose Your
Own Adventure ."
The studio is licensing Kina Industries' CtrlMovie technology, which will allow in-theater audiences to control the action
throughout a film , Fox said during a CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas. Audiences can use Kino's app on their
smartphones to vote on what the characters will do at pivotal points in the narrative. The same film can have a different
plot, ending, and running time depending on the audience preferences and is supposed to happen seamlessly with no
breaks in between scenes.
"Bringing game changing, innovative technology to audiences and enhancing the cinematic experience has always
been a cornerstone of the Twentieth Century Fox brand and our next venture is the outstanding CtrlMovie technology
we are utilizing for 'Choose Your Own Adventure,'" said Chris Aronson, 20th Centurv. Fox's president of domestic
distribution. "This interactive experience, and the passionate, creative team behind this project, allow the true spirit of
the beloved book series to fall into the hands of fans around the world."
The film is based on the 1980s book series that allowed readers to choose various endings. The movie is currently in
development with John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti
Productions, and Shannon Gilligan of Chooseco, the publisher of the "Choose Your Own Adventure " brand, attached to
Kino Industries principals Chady Eli Mattar, Scott C. Silver, and Tobias Weber will serve as executive producers. Mike
Ireland will oversee the project for the studio.
