”Bright“ screenwriter has been accused by multiple women of abuse in Daily Beast article published Tuesday

Max Landis’s former manager, Britton Rizzio at Writ Large Management, no longer represents the “Bright” screenwriter, Rizzio told TheWrap.

“I do not represent Max Landis,” Rizzio said in an email. Further, a representative for the company told TheWrap in a phone call that Landis is no longer represented by Write Large Management as a client.

In a Daily Beast article published Tuesday, Landis, who is the son of director John Landis, was accused by several women of of sexual assault, abuse and on-set harassment.

A woman identified as Julie told The Daily Beast that Landis repeatedly raped her during their two-year personal relationship. Further, three of Landis’s ex-girlfriends — Ani Baker, Dani Manning, and a woman identified by the pseudonym Kerry — said Landis had physically and emotionally abused them, including choking them. And a woman identified as Veronica said Landis touched her in an unwanted sexual manner repeatedly during an overnight trip to Disneyland. Another woman said she witnessed Landis raping her disoriented friend.

Landis’s lawyer, Howard Abramson, but did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Landis also did not reply to The Daily Beast.

Landis is also the screenwriter of “Chronicle” and “Victor Frankenstein.” On Tuesday, “Chronicle” director Josh Trank said he has not spoken with Landis since 2012 but fully believes the Daily Beast’s reporting.

“I 100% believe every word of this article about Max. I banned him from visiting principal photography of ‘Chronicle,’ and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012,” Trank tweeted on Tuesday. “To read about the terror he’s inflicted on so many women since then makes me sick to my stomach. Heartbroken beyond measure.”
