Jonathan Levine has been signed up to direct comedy The Sitter, a story of a college student who takes in the task of baby-sitting for the crazy kids next door. The film is described in The Hollywood Reporter as a return to the style of 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting.
Levine was writer/director on the relatively good indie hit The Wackness. He is also in the midst of developing the self-penned romantic thriller Positive and recently worked on an adaptation of Echelon Vendetta, based on a novel by David Stone.
Levine certainly showed some nice touches for The Wackness and, given his debut with All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, he is obviously working to build a career outside of identifiable generic type.
