MAX BORENSTEIN (Screenwriter) is currently adapting the Swedish cyberpunk novel Mona for New Regency and writing “Art of the Steal” for New Line Cinema, with Seth Gordon set to direct. Additionally, the screenwriter is developing two new projects for his “Godzilla” partners at Legendary Pictures.

Borenstein wrote, edited, and directed his first feature film, “Swordswallowers and Thin Men,” while a senior at Yale University.

His screenplays “What is Life Worth?” based on Kenneth Feinberg's memoir of the same name, and “Jimi,” based on the life of guitarist Jimi Hendrix, were both honored on The Black List.
