Writer Max Landis No Longer Attached to ‘Chronicle 2’

In http://movieweb.com/max-landis-says-chronicle-2-is-moving-along/April, Chronicle writer/creator Max Landis shot down rumors that 20th Century Fox was unhappy with his script ideas for the sequel Chronicle 2, which was originally on the fast track after Chronicle proved to be a success at the box office. Apparently, the studio wanted something that was identical to the first movie, while Landis wanted to take the material in a new, different direction.

Now, Max Landis is admitting that his father was right, for the most part. In a candid series of Tweets, the writer revealed that Fox did want to go in a different direction after all, and that original director Josh Trank was never part of the process, nor was he planning on coming back."As of right now, neither Josh or I are on Chronicle 2, so... I've been off Chronicle 2 for months now. Fox had a different direction they wanted to take the series, Josh was never attached. Ultimately, I'm just very grateful to Fox for making a film as close to my original script as Chronicle was. For making the film at all. So yeah it's sad that as of right now I'm not involved in the sequel, and don't know what it's about even, but ultimately I can't complain.

EXCLUSIVE: Two ‘Chronicle’ Blu-ray Photos

Coming to Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, May 15th, is the critically acclaimed found-footage superhero thriller Chronicle. We have two exclusive photos from this Josh Trank directed movie. Check them out, along with our full photo gallery featuring Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell, and Michael B. Jordan.

Clear your thoughts for a "mesmerizing mind-bender" (Rolling Stone) that'll blow you away! Seen through the lens of a troubled teen's video camera, yet filled with eye-popping action and jaw-dropping special effects, Chronicle is as real as it gets. When three ordinary high school friends make an extraordinary discovery, they acquire amazing abilities beyond their understanding. But as their powers develop, so do their darker sides. Fun, harmless pranks soon lead too much riskier activities as the boys' "gifts" - and their lives - spin dangerously out of control!

EXCLUSIVE: Josh Trank Talks ‘Chronicle’ Blu-ray

Director Josh Trank discusses his found footage movie Chronicle, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD May 15

Josh Trank is a filmmaker who certainly has a bright future ahead of him, after his impressive directorial debut Chronicle. The 27-year-old cut his teeth as a co-producer of Big Fan, and he wrote and directed several episodes of The Kill Point before his big break with Chronicle, a movie that manages to look and feel like it cost a lot more than it actually did. Chronicle arrives on Blu-ray and DVD May 15, and I recently had the chance to speak with Josh Trank over the phone.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Chronicle’ Cast and Crew Interviews

The found footage genre has had its ups and downs since The Blair Witch Project became a national phenomena back in 1999. While most of these films are planted within the horror world, 20th Century Fox's Chronicle throws the whole genre for a loop by putting a supernatural spin on things. The story centers on three Seattle teenagers (Alex Russell, Dane DeHaan, and Michael B. Jordan), who make an incredible discovery outside a party, and emerge with amazing new abilites. I was able to speak with Alex Russell, Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan, and director Josh Trank about Chronicle, which debuts in theaters nationwide February 3.
