It looks like Max Landis (Chronicle) will transition from writer to director with Me Him Her, a sexual identity comedy funded by Big Beach Films (the banner behind Safety Not Guaranteed).  The film is set in Los Angeles where three young leads, at least one of whom struggles with sexual identity, who are all going through a quarter-life crisis.  Me Him Her explores the themes of friendship, love and sex, while ultimately concluding that conceptions of ourselves should be more flexible.  Hit the jump for more on Me Him Her, including comments from Landis himself.

Variety reports that chronicle-2-sequel-max-landisLandis’ directorial debut is “Reality Bites on acid,” and explores the above-mentioned themes in “the weirdest, most surreal way possible.”  As Landis describes:

“It’s totally insane! The devil is in it.”

Casting on the indie comedy is currently underway and production is planned to kick off next spring or summer, dependent on Landis’ prior commitments.

Among those other commitments are Landis’ sequel to Chronicle (though Fox is reportedly none-too-thrilled with his treatment so far); Vigilant, a superhero cop drama series on TV; a remake of Frankenstein at Fox with Paul McGuigan to direct; and a co-production of the adventure pic Woogles with Timur Bekmambetov.

Universal and Imagine are also producing Landis’ Amnesty script, RCR Pictures is actively seeking a director for his Good Time Gang and Landis still has a top-secret project in the works at Disney.

Big Beach Films boasts a successful track record of backing first-time directors, including Colin Trevorrow’s Safety Not Guaranteed, Little Miss Sunshine and Sherrybaby, as well as the debut directorial efforts for acting veterans Philip Seymour Hoffman and Liev Schreiber.

    You’re just jealous ’cause he was able to make it in this business with absolutely no family connections or Hollywood nepotism. Your viewpoint is ill-befitting of the so-called “Boss.”

    No nepotism?! You’re joking, right? This douche canoe, Max Landis, is the annoying son of John Landis (Animal House). The only reason he got a shot in the business is because of this connection. Max Landis sucks.
