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

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.

our society is f*cked lol. sickening porn is accessed by teen boys (and younger) daily yet they're not allowed to see a movie because somebody swears in it? i hope this movie does well. it's sad that women can't have careers like men can.

I'm pretty sure this film will not win the weekend. It is being marketed purely off of Megan Fox's sex appeal and I am pretty sure the rest of this film will lack in everything else besides Megan Fox's looks. I do not think Megan Fox has the star power to carry her own film right now. People want to see Transformers for the robots. This will be her first test. I don't think it will turn out as well as "Juno" did for Diablo Cody.
