What are The 39 Clues? The 39 Clues are a series of books, games and collectable cards from Scholastic about the secrets of the powerful Cahill family– *Gunshots*

I may have said too much. Anyway, Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks partner Stacey Snider set-up the project in 2008 at DreamWorks (naturally), as a directing vehicle for Spielberg. However, Spielberg is too busy directing Lincoln and Executive Producing a whole bunch o’ stuff, which means they needed a new director. So, they called up Brett Ratner and asked if he had any more Rush Hour movies in the pipeline or X-Men movie projects he wanted to ruin. When Ratner said “no,” he got the job.

Screenwriter Jeff Nathanson wrote the adaptation for 39 Clues. Ratner and Nathanson also teamed up for the upcoming action-comedy Tower Heist, starring Ben Stiller. (Deadline)
