Interview: Karyn Kusama & Jason Reitman on Jennifer's Body

September 17, 2009
Two interviews with Jason Reitman in two days! Yes, indeed! But this time I decided to mix things up and bring in someone else. Jennifer's Body showed up here at the Toronto Film Festival a few days ago (read my review) and after seeing it, I caught up with director Karyn Kusama and producer Jason Reitman for a quick interview in their hotel. This is Kusama's third feature film following Girlfight and Aeon Flux. We talked about what it was shooting this (and her interest in the horror genre), whether it's a horror-comedy or comedy-horror, and her two beautiful lead actresses (Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried). Enjoy!
Watch my interview with director Karyn Kusama and producer Jason Reitman:
This interview was shot using my Flip Mino camera up in Toronto. What I love about these co-interviews is that the two of them usually end up in discussions on their own because they can feed off of each other, and therefore we usually get into so much more depth that otherwise wouldn't have been possible - especially with the producer on-board. It's a fun film and it was interesting to hear about all of the behind-the-scenes, how it came together, and so on. I hope you'll be checking it out this weekend, as Jennifer's Body officially arrives in theaters tomorrow, September 18th. It's not the best of the year, but it's still a great movie.
