Despite facing numerous allegations of sexual assault, Landis - infamous as the son of notable director, John (best known for Animal House and Twilight Zone: The Movie) - has announced two more greenlit screenwriting projects:
-Shadow in the Cloud, a feminist action thriller starring Chloe Grace Moretz as "a captain carrying top secret documents aboard a B-17 Flying Fortress who must contend with an evil presence, an oncoming Japanese ambush and a leery, all-male crew". Roseanne Liang will direct.
-Deeper, a sci-fi thriller (Idris Elba is in talks to star).
In 2017, Landis was publicly accused of sexual assault by numerous sources. He responded to these allegations by disappearing from social media.
