Max Landis, the scriptwriter for "Chronicle," will make his feature directing debut with the sexual-identity comedy "Me Him Her,” a representative for Landis has told TheWrap.
The so-called "quarter-life-crisis" story takes place in Los Angeles and follows three youngsters hung up on their sexuality. It's expected to start production next spring or summer.
The film will be produced and fully financed by Big Beach Films ("Safety Not Guaranteed"), which has produced a number of directorial debuts with actors, including Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Jack Goes Boating") and Liev Schreiber ("Everything Is Illuminated").
Landis, who also directed the short "The Death and Return of Superman," is also developing a remake of "Frankenstein" with Paul McGuigan set to direct at Fox and is working on the adventure film "Woogles" with Timur Bekmambetov.
Founded in 2004 by Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf, Big Beach is a New York-based company that produces and finances independent films, documentaries and theater projects.
“Chronicle” made over $126 million at the worldwide box office.
