Interview: Director Jonathan Levine on the Long, Long Wait for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

October 11, 2013


It's not at all unusual, especially in the horror genre, to have a significant window between a film's acqusition and its theatrical release. It's just a bit more extreme in the the case of Jonathan Levine's directorial debut, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, which heads to theaters today, more than seven full year after its debut at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival.

Amber Heard and Anson Mount headline the indie thriller, which features a screenplay by Jacob Forman. Heard is the titular Lane, a sweet, good-natured high school student who has become everyone's dream girl. As if she doesn't already have enough trouble dodging the constant attention, Mandy Lane heads away for a weekend getaway, only to find that her peers are being picked off by a mysterious killer one by one.

ShockTillYouDrop.com caught up with Mandy Lane helmer Jonathan Levine who, in the time since the film was finished, has directed dramatic fare in both The Wackness and 50/50 before returning to horror for this year's Warm Bodies. In the interview, Levine discusses injecting his aesthetic into the story, his thoughts on the horror genre, and the long, long wait for Mandy Lane.
