Christopher Landon, one of Michael's sons, is a film writer known for the "Paranormal Activity" movies. As an openly gay man, he has been living his life next to husband Cody Morris and their son, Beau Landon Morris. Since Christopher and Cody chose to keep their own last names, they decided that their son should have both.
As a filmmaker, Christopher has been very successful in the entertainment industry, just as his late father. He made his directorial debut with "Burning Palms," a satirical thriller that premiered in 2010.
