JONATHAN LEVINE (Director and Screenwriter) is a
filmmaker on the rise in Hollywood. Most recently Levine directed
50/50, starring Joseph Gordon Levitt, Seth Rogen, Bryce Dallas

Lerner, played by Levitt,
who at age 25 is diagnosed with a rare type of cancer.
Levine is next attached to direct LITTLE GIRL LOST, for Universal

Born and raised in New York City, Levine has been an aspiring
filmmaker since the age of
12. Following his graduation from Brown University's art and semiotics
program, he worked as
personal assistant to renowned writer and director Paul Schrader. In
2002 Levine moved to Los
Angeles to attend the American Film Institute (AFI) Conservatory as a
director. There Levine met
the writer and producers of horror film ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE,
which he was soon hired
to direct. Upon graduation Levine premiered the film at the 2006
Toronto International Film
Festival and The Weinstein Company purchased it almost immediately.
In 2008 THE WACKNESS, Levine's second feature and his first as both
writer and director,
won the audience awards at the Sundance Film Festival and Los Angeles
Film Festival. Starring
Ben Kingsley and Josh Peck, the film also earned Levine an Independent
Spirit Award nomination
for Best First Screenplay.
