After seven years of sitting in limbo waiting for a theatrical release, director Jonathan Levine’s debut film, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, is finally coming to theaters. Deadline is reporting that Radius-TWC has finalized a deal for the film and are working at setting a late-summer release in at least the top 50 markets while simultaneously being made available on video on-demand.
The film was originally bought by the Weinstein Company for their Dimension Films banner following a successful premier at the Sundance Film Festival in 2006, but they turned around and sold it to Senator Entertainment in the aftermath of the Robert Rodriquez-Quentin Tarantino double feature Grindhouse crashing and burning at the box office. Unfortunately, Senator itself soon folded, leaving the release of the film in limbo.
Radius co-president Tom Quinn stated that he originally saw the film while working in acquisitions at Magnolia Pictures and once TWC had established their multi-platform division, he contacted the film’s executive producer, Keith Calder, to obtain the rights.
The film centers on a “good girl” Mandy Lane (Amber Heard) who gets invited by her high school friends to a weekend long party at a secluded ranch. However, amidst the drinking and partying, the teens begin to disappear one by one. Here is the trailer from the film’s UK release.
