Max Landis is the latest scribe to put his stamp on the long gestating (since 1991!) HOUDINI. His take will reportedly bring over a H.P. Lovecraft influence to the project. Whether this means Houdini versus tentacle monsters or some serious cerebral horror or maybe he was just pals with Lovecraft remains to be seen.
The great (and sometimes underrated) Scott Frank was the last scribe to give it a shot, so Landis had better bring his A-game. Jimmy Miller will produce.
Landis recently shot “Me Him Her”, his directorial debut, and his “Frankenstein” script is currently shooting now.
He is repped by WME.
