“Real Steel” director Shawn Levy has come on board to direct a brand new family film. This time it's one based on the popular series of young adult novels.

Levy is attached to direct “The 39 Clues” based on the popular novels where each book comes with trading cards and an online game where kids can hunt for treasures and win cash prizes.

The movie will focus on two children who discover they're part of a famous family with relatives that range from Napoleon to Harry Houdini. The kids will travel the globe looking for clues to make a potion that will create the most powerful person in the world.

No word on when shooting will begin. Levy is still attached to direct “Interns” with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, “Fantastic Voyage” and a “Pinocchio” prequel.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
