Default Re: Max Landis article on Deadline

Landis is basically a male Diablo Cody -- good looking, witty, uber-confident, great on camera. He's also a good writer. But the fame can only take you so far. Cody was a super-hot former stripper, but that alone didn't land her any huge paychecks after Juno.

Why is Landis getting the huge paycheck? Because he's shown he can write big-budget blockbusters, and that's where the money is.

The jury's still out on that.

I'll just point out again that Landis was approached to write CHRONICLE by the director (Trank) who was then able to get it greenlit. Without that connection, there's no CHRONICLE. Fairly safe to say how he had that connection in the first place.

Obviously, he then still had to write CHRONICLE in a way that lead to it being a roaring success.

But, I imagine most people looking to break in would increase their chances of success pretty drastically if a director capable of getting a movie made approached them with an idea and attached themselves to the project.

Max talks about his pitch for Ghostbusters and losing out on writing it.

I feel like Max is pretty harmless; I don't get the sense that he speaks out of spite or revenge. However, at some point he may be in a position to work with some of those cast members or execs -- why publicly criticize their movie and give them an obstacle in hiring him? He's got all these reps and not one of them can tell him to shut up?

He gets in his own way, this guy.
