'The Wackness'

Jonathan Levine will follow up his Los Angeles Film Festival success with indie drama The Wackness by taking on a romantic thriller and a spy film, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Levine will write and direct love story Positive, set in Martha's Vineyard, for Occupant Films. He has also agreed to pen Echelon Vendetta, a spy thriller based on David Stone's novel, for Sony.

"I want to have a lot of the creative freedom that comes from [indie films], but I also don't want to be broke," he said.

The Wackness, a coming-of-age story set in mid-'90s New York, stars Ben Kingsley, Famke Janssen, Josh Peck and Mary-Kate Olsen.

It is released in the UK on August 29.
