Warner Bros. Pictures is in negotiations to use The Guinness Book Of World Records as the basis for an action adventure feature film says Deadline.
Danny Chun (“The Office”) has been hired to write the script for the Warners-based production company Thunder Road. Basil Iwanyk, Sean Sorensen and Mathew Cullen will produce the feature.
The question of course is how in the hell to get a story narrative out of a book which is essentially a collection of extreme facts. The project is already drawing comparisons to the scrapped Tim Burton-directed, Jim Carrey-led “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” project that was set up at Paramount.
