Max Adams works when time allows with screenwriters and filmmakers consulting on projects and scripts.
Max Adams has worked with Columbia Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Studios, and Tri-Star Pictures on myriad projects “in development.” And is now lobbying her congressman for a “return of fire” medal [something sparkley would be nice].
Max’s adaptation, The Ladykillers, was released in 2004 [and she lost the damn arbitration on that one]. One For The Money in 2012. [Another day, another arbitration.] She is the founder of two international online screenwriting groups, is a former AFI Alumni reader and WGA online mentor, is a recipient of the University of Utah College of Fine Arts Distinguished Alumni Award, and is the founder of The Academy of Film Writing.
Max’s non-filmic writing credits include journalism, short fiction, essays, theatre, humor, and radio. She is the author of The New Screenwriter’s Survival Guide – and has an almost criminal love of shoes.
Max is a member of WGAw and is represented by Harley Copen at ICM.
