LOS ANGELES, June 23 (UPI) -- Tim Robbins is reportedly in final talks to star in Columbia Pictures' adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg's books "Zathura.'
"Zathura" -- like Allsburg's book "Jumanji" -- centers around a family whose life is turned chaotic by the discovery of a mysterious board game. In "Jumanji" the game released fantasy creatures into the house and neighborhood. In "Zathura" the board game sends kids into an intergalactic new world.
Robbins -- who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar last February for "Mystic River" -- reportedly would play the kids' dad.
