Background and Age

Max Landis was born on August 3, 1985, in Beverly Hills, California. He was born to father John Landis, a famous film director and mother Deborah Nadoolman Landis, an author, teacher, history specialist, outfit designer. He has an older sister named Rachel Landis. His grandma Shirley Levine Landis was an actress and grandfather Marshall Landis was an interior designer.

Career and Net Worth

His first start in the business was a piece he co-wrote with his father for a TV program called Masters of Horror. In the years that pursued, Landis completed a great deal of writing and built up his screenwriting portfolio. His detractors claimed that he's a lucky recipient of a nepotistic industry. They said that his last name has got him to where he is.

His huge break as a screen writer accompanied the unexpected 2012 hit, Chronicle. Directed by Josh Trank who was notorious for the 2015 Fantastic 4 reboot, the low budget movie profited with its new interpretation of the hero story. Landis had the option to springboard off this accomplishment with many film offers. Three movies composed by Landis were released in 2015. The films were called Me Him Her, American Ultra and Victor Frankenstein. None of these movies made much money at the box office, and surveys were mixed. Victor Frankenstein was attacked with negative reviews the most, it was a motion picture that departed fundamentally from Landis' unique content. Even though American Ultra did not make much money, it still got many positive reviews.

Marriage, Wife, and Kids

In June 2019, Max Landis confronted the toughest part of his life with multiple charges of sexual harassment and mental abuse from eight ladies who recounted their stories to the Daily Beast. Two of the ladies talked on the record, and another five were recognized off the record. An eighth lady confirmed that she documented a police report against Landis in 2008, in which she asserted that he had explicitly struck her while she was flushed and weakened. The case was later dropped.

Three of the ladies affirmed that Landis raped them. One lady claimed that Landis held her down and assaulted her, and would intentionally embarrass her in light of the fact that needed to have intercourse with her while she was crying. Landis has not yet reacted to demands for input on the reports.
