Well, that's for screenwriter Etan Cohen to worry about, as the Hollywood Reporter has just announced that he will pen the upcoming project. Earlier this month, DreamWorks bought the film rights to the blog Musunahi.com, aka the Museum of SuperNatural History. Now we know what you're thinking: How can a movie be based on a website that features occasional posts like 'Giant Jelly Fish Sinks Japanese Fishing Trawler'?
Well, that's for screenwriter Etan Cohen to worry about, as the Hollywood Reporter has just announced that he will pen the upcoming project.
According to the report, Cohen already has an idea for the plot. Get this: The film may revolve around the curator of a secret society (called the Museum of SuperNatural History, of course) who aims to protect the world's biggest mysteries, like Stonehenge, the Sphinx and odd scientific discoveries. We're thinking it could be the next 'Indiana Jones' meets 'The Da Vinci Code' meets, well, 'Night at the Museum'; however, it also sounds like the opposite of the website's reported intent, which is to expose mysteries, not hide them.
Still, Cohen is one of the hottest screenwriters in Hollywood today, having already co-written 'Tropic Thunder,' 'Idiocracy' and 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.' Currently, he's working on the film adaptation of 'Candy Land,' the sequel 'Men in Black 3,' 'Project A' and Judd Apatow's 'Untitled Sherlock Holmes Comedy' starring Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen.
