'Bright' Writer Max Landis Fears for His Life After Receiving Online Death Threats

By TheBlast Staff

Max Landis has been receiving death threats from a woman he met once six years ago and now he's gotten a restraining order to keep her from carrying it out.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Landis — the son of legendary director John Landis and the writer of films like "Bright," "Chronicle" and "American Ultra" — says he met a woman named Agnes Barrios Laffitte at a bar in Hollywood in 2012.

Landis claims she has threatened to shoot him and has claimed to know where he lives. He says that earlier this week, she messaged him saying, "you have two more weeks landis. i will kill you. i have nothing to live for. i will sacrifice myself and go to jail for life."

He says he is "afraid to interact with her test with her lest I provoke some kind of action."

"I am afraid for my safety," he writes at one point.

Max Landis went to the LAPD earlier this week and filled out a police report as well.

Landis was granted a temporary restraining order and a civil harassment restraining order barring Laffitte from coming with 100 yards of him.

She was also ordered not to contact Landis via social media or mentioning his name publicly in any fashion. Laffitte must also delete all posts about Landis and "never contact him again."
