Max Landis comes on board...
Max Landis (Chronicle) is set for rewrite work on Columbia Pictures' Harry Houdini film. Deadline reports that Landis has come on board the untitled film, which is said to have an influence from H.P. Lovecraft's works. It follows Houdini as he tries to expose a spiritualist as a fraud.
There are two separate Houdini films in the works right now; the other is a biopic by Summit Entertainment based on the book The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero.
