A lot of people wondered whether Max Landis was getting work in Hollywood more because he was the son of John Landis than his own talent, but the moment Chronicle opened, the critics were silenced. He’s now hugely in demand, but Deadline says he’ll find the time to write a follow-up to Chronicle.
He’s a busy boy though, as the writer is also hard at work writing Amnesty, an untitled movie that Ron Howard is set to direct, and an adventure pic for Disney. Goodness knows when he’ll fit in Chronicle 2, but he’s now signed on to pen the screenplay so he obviously thinks he can slot it in to his schedule.
Chronicle stars Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan as high school friends who gain superpowers but find their lives going out of control and their friendships tested. The low-budget movie has grossed more than $100 million at the box office worldwide since Fox released it in February.
