Max Landis Has A Winning Strategy

Say what you will about him but he's showing how screenwriters can position themselves for more power in the industry. Yes, many of us won't have the background that Landis does. But we can't dismiss all he's done because of who his father is. These recent deals (Bright and now Deeper) show that he has a mind and a vision for what he wants to do. It's thinking about what can be done, not what has been. And taking advantage of the opportunity. Take some notes: https://deadline.com/2016/04/mgm-bradley-cooper-max-landis-deeper-hbo-fa...

Hollywood is nepotism. max landis is very talented but it also helps when your dad is a Hollywood legend. Father to sons. passing of the torch. it is what it is. Most writers here (myself) dont have access to Agents, producers, or Actors. money people hang out with money people.

Max Landis is a brilliant writer and thinker. If you ever heard him speak or if you ever read any articles on him, it would be pretty clear to grok how talented he is. He has also written over 50 scripts, if I recall correctly - not too shabby for a 30-year old.

LOLOL Max Landis will discover the cure for cancer. I will say one thing. Landis is a great seller of BS

Bill Costantini

Dan...you're a thoroughly misguided character - but an interesting character nonetheless.
