After seven years of sitting on the shelf collecting dust Jonathan Levine's debut film, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, is actually going to get released. Since this movie has been made Levine has directed The Wackness, 50/50, and Warm Bodies. I saw this movie one year at Comic-Con and I'll be honest, I wasn't a big fan. He's a solid filmmaker now, but I wasn't impressed with this one at all, particularly Amber Heard's performance. The movie will finally be released sometime this year, but there's still no solid release date. Here's the synopsis for the film...
Starring Amber Heard and Anson Mount, ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY is about a group of high-schoolers who invite Mandy Lane, 'a good girl' who becomes the object of everyone’s affection after returning from summer break, to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to mysteriously drop one at a time.
Levine had this to say in a statement,
I am thrilled that MANDY LANE has been rescued and is back where it belongs with Harvey and Bob. Hard to believe it’s been seven years, but then again I’ve always perceived myself as a misunderstood artist who was light years ahead of his time, so I am thrilled the world has finally caught up. Seriously, I am incredibly proud of the film and of the hard work that my cast and collaborators put into it, and I am so happy the world will finally get a chance to see it.
Executive producer Keith Calder had this to say,
It’s finally time for me to come clean… During the production of MANDY LANE, I broke a mirror and doomed the film to seven years of bad luck. Thankfully, the team at RADiUS-TWC has shown up to rescue our film and clear my guilty conscience. I’m ecstatic that our first film with RADiUS-TWC is also the first film we produced, and I’m looking forward to working with Harvey, Bob, Jason, and Tom on the release.
