About Max

Repped By: Paradigm Talent Agency | Artillery Creative | Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman

I came onto the scene after my action/biopic script SMOKE made the Tracking-Board Hit List and sold to Relativity Studios, with Andrew Panay attached to produce (WEDDING CRASHERS, CHiPs...).

Beyond Relativity Studios, I have written and developed projects with Josephson Entertainment, Millennium Films, Offspring Entertainment, Vinson Films, Cheyenne Enterprises, Aldamisa Entertainment, Parkes+MacDonald Image Nation, and Stuart M. Besser (Executive Producer of Molly's Game, Mile 22, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Need for Speed...).
