Set Visit Preview: Jennifer's Body
I had the distinct pleasure of traveling to Vancouver to visit the set of JENNIFER'S BODY this week. Starring Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, and Adam Brody, this horror comedy is the brainchild of JUNO phenom Diablo Cody.On set Cody talked her love for bad horror movies saying "I feel like bad horror movies are edifying in their own way. Horror is sort of a inherently tacky. It's a garish genre and that's why I love it because I am a garish individual." Cody then goes on to use the following movies as the recipe to make JENNIFER'S BODY: THE VIRGIN SUICIDES, SUSPIRIA, JUST ONE OF THE GUYS, CREEPSHOW, CARRIE, and GINGER SNAPS. Cody definitely shared her thoughts on her first attempt at horror and also mentioned a possible future romantic comedy.
Also on set was producer Jason Reitman, who besides showing some serious love for JoBlo.com, supported his production partner Cody. He compared the script for JENNIFER'S BODY to JUNO this way: "[It] took teenagers seriously. There was a warmth to it... Recently, most horror films I see kind of fall in two categories: either kind of gore and decimation or this world of really cold horror films that have sprung from THE RING." Reitman went on to talk about his love for Diablo's genius as well as touch on some of his future projects. Stars Adam Brody and Amanda Seyfried, and director Karen Kusama also did some interviews, but that will have to wait until we get closer to the release date (that is still yet to be determined). While Megan Fox was on set she did not hit the interview tent for face time. I wonder why that might have been?
Stay tuned for a full report from the JENNIFER'S BODY set!
