RADiUS-TWC RESURRECTS ‘ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE’

 

FIRST FILM FROM ‘WARM BODIES’ DIRECTOR JONATHAN LEVINE

RELEASE DATE SET FOR LATE SUMMER

 

 

New York, NY:  March 8, 2013 –  RADiUS-TWC is proud to announce that it has acquired U.S. rights to ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE, the long anticipated feature directorial debut from director Jonathan Levine (WARM BODIES, 50/50) that has been rescued by the Weinstein Company’s boutique label.

 

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.

 

ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE will be released in late summer – seven years after its Toronto Film Festival Midnight premiere.

 

RADiUS Co-President Tom Quinn says:  “I’ve been chasing this film since I first saw it in Toronto. [Executive producer] Keith Calder and I have kept in touch over the years and he’s finally been able to wrangle the film from a deal at Senator.  Originally, Harvey and Bob beat us to it in Toronto and now we get to work together to finally bring MANDY LANE to U.S. audiences. This is one of the few horror films that has remained relevant and in the zeitgeist for years – – no easy feat – – and it still surpasses so much of what is being produced today.“

 

According to Harvey and Bob Weinstein, “We’ve always loved MANDY LANE and are thrilled that RADiUS shares our passion for the film and will get in front of the widest possible audience.”

Levine goes on to say:  “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.”

“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,” echoes Calder.

 

Quinn and RADiUS Co-President Jason Janego negotiated the deal with Calder.
