Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis is about to direct his first feature film project. He will direct a comedy called Me Him Her, which will focus on sexual identity.
Variety describes the movie as "Reality Bites on acid," and that the story is a "quarter-life-crisis tale set in Los Angeles that features three young leads, at least one of whom is struggling with their sexuality. Exploring sex, love and friendship in what Landis describes as 'the weirdest, most surreal way possible,' the story ultimately emphasizes that conceptions of self should be flexible." Landis gives some more details saying, "It's totally insane! The devil is in it." Not much more has been released on what the movie is about.
The director is currently casting the film which is being produced by Big Beach Film, which is the same company that brought us the great indie sci-fi romance film Safety Not Guaranteed. Apparently, Landis is using the logline from Return of the Jedi to throw people off.
The movie is scheduled to start production next spring or summer when Landis is finished wrapping up his prior commitments. He's also working on a remake of Frankenstein, a sequel to Chronicle, and an adventure film called Woogles with Timur Bekmambetov. Universal and Imagine are producing Landis' script Amnesty, and RCR Pictures is looking for a director for his action-comedy Good Time Gang. Landis is also writing a top-secret project for Disney. I'm sure some people will speculate that it's Star Wars Episode VII, but I don't think that is the case.
What do you think about Landis' new project? I'm curious to see where Landis' career goes. He's got a lot of stuff in the works, and it will be interesting to see how these other films he's working on turn out.
