Director Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) will reunite with scribe Will Reiser on the vacation-based comedy entitled Jamaica. Per their own press release, Mandate Pictures will fast-track the development of Jamaica with Levine attached to direct, Reiser writing/executive producing, and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-producing the pic through their Point Grey Pictures moniker. According to the release, Jamaica is based loosely on a trip Reiser took with his grandmother at the age of 14.
All four of the previously mentioned gentlemen participated in identical capacities for the upcoming dramedy 50/50 which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anjelica Huston, and Rogen. The film is based on Reiser’s own battle with a rare form of cancer and is set to hit theaters later this year on September 30th. Click here to check out the trailer for 50/50.
