Jordan Kerner

On Friday we got to hear from Director Raja Gosnell on his sequel to 2011 movie The Smurfs and it’s now only a couple of days away that The Smurfs 2 hits UK cinemas. As well as Raja we got to sit down to chat one of the Producers on the sequel Jordan Kerner. Jordan’s filmography is rather extensive and includes the likes of The Three Musketeers, George of the Jungle, Inspector Gadget to name but a few and has a keen eye when it comes to making movies for this sort of demographic.

We speak to Jordan about the success of the first movie and taking him by surprise as well as the challenges of shooting in Paris, where the technology is going in these Smurf moviesĀ  and whether this technology continues to surprise him in the films that they make, especially using this advanced animation that is ever changing. He also talks about the love of The Smurfs in the French speaking region and how well they were received and how that opened doors that they may not have had access to otherwise.

Next up we have our junket interview with actor Hank Azaria who plays Gargamel and Neil Patrick Harris so keep your eyes peeled for those.
