Jason: I was in the middle of writing a new screenplay, which I'll probably make as my third movie, and I read Juno and just fell in love with it, and knew I needed to make this. It came together very quickly; I came on board, we cast it, we were shooting it a few months later, it's happened very fast. It's a beautiful movie, and I'm thrilled by it.
Jason: Being the son of a filmmaker, you are aware of a career as a director. You don't think of it as just movies, but as a life. I couldn't help but wonder how my life was going to go ... One film does not make a career.
