Family Tree

John and Max Landis are members of a distinguished royal family, whose lineage stretches back generations. John, the eldest Landis, began his illustrious career at the tender age of 18 in the mailroom of 20th Century-Fox, before journeying to Yugoslavia as a production assistant on the classic Kelly's Heroes (1970). Following his foray into Europe, he worked as an actor, extra, and stuntman in many renowned Spanish and Italian westerns. At the age of 21, he returned to the US to make his feature debut as a writer-director with Schlock (1973). Meanwhile, Max, born August 3, 1985 in Los Angeles County, California, has since become an acclaimed writer and producer, whose works include Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (2016), Bright (2017), and Chronicle (2012). Together, the Landis family have made a lasting mark on the entertainment industry, and will no doubt continue to do so for generations to come.
