Jason Reitman's Quotes

  • 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.
  • Do you know how many times I get asked if I want to do Ghostbusters 3? Looking at my career so far, I mean if you just looked at my two films, I would make the most boring Ghostbusters movie. It would just be people talking about ghosts, there wouldn't be any ghost-busting in it.
  • I don't want to make films that give you the answer. If there is a message to my films - and I hope there isn't - it's to be open-minded.
  • I always refer to a piece of advice my father gave me the night before I started shooting Thank You for Smoking (2005). He said, 'Always remember: it's not your job to be funny. Your barometer for comedy is nowhere as good as your barometer for truth'.
  • I like to tell original stories, and the most simplistic argument would be that if you want to tell original stories, tell stories about women.
