Max Landis

Max Landis

Max Landis is a screenwriter, and now a director and a producer too, which is neat. He wrote Chronicle and that was pretty cool, and it looks like other stuff he wrote will be movies also, which he describes as “exciting.” Max loves movies and comics and arbitrary weirdness that doesn’t namedrop itself or try too hard to be cool.
