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 Howard and Anna Kendrick. The dramedy follows the story of Adam 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 Pictures; Jamaica, for Mandate Pictures; and LEGEND, for CBS Films.

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.
