Variety reports that Walt Disney have bought a space adventure pitch from screenwriter Max Landis — one which, as a film, will be produced by Andrew Panay under his Panay Films banner. There are no details about the movie other than a really bland and broad outline of “brother and sister go on epic adventure,” but there’s a 98% chance that there’s more to it. Okay, 97%.
Landis, the son of legendary genre director John Landis, has been quite busy in the world of screenwriting. In addition to next month’s found footage movie, Chronicle, Landis is also working on a Frankenstein screenplay that has Shawn Levy attached, and a fantasy thriller based on the classic children’s story The Pied Piper (surprised he wrangled that away from Tim Burton) for 20th Century Fox. Meanwhile, another of his scripts, Amnesty, is being directed by Ron Howard for Universal. In short, he’s doing way more with his life than we are. Let’s get mad at him to make up for our feelings of inadequacy.
Are you interested in seeing Landis rise in the screenwriting ranks?
