Interview: Writer-Directors Jon Hurwitz And Hayden Schlossberg Talk American Reunion

Not only do Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have the pleasure of seeing Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle turn into a very successful three-film franchise, but now they get to have a hand in a different series of films, something that had a great impact on them when they were first kicking off their career, American Pie.

After a nine-year hiatus, the whole gang is back to celebrate their high school reunion and Hurwitz and Schlossberg are behind the wheel dictating the action. Similarly to what they just did with A Very Harold & Kumar 3D ChristmasAmerican Reunion finds its roots in the idea of seeing where these high school stereotypes wind up when they’re in their 30s.

While celebrating the release of Harold & Kumar round three, Hurwitz and Schlossberg took the time to talk a bit about American Reunion, how they got the gig, how they worked on that and Harold & Kumar simultaneously and more. Check it all out for yourself below.

Interview: A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas Writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg

It’s been three years, but Harold and Kumar are finally back! We went with the guys on their epic trip to White Castle back in 2004 and then watched them evade the authorities in Escape from Guantanamo Bay, but now it’s time to see what happen when Harold and Kumar wreak havoc during Christmas.

In A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, Harold and Kumar are all grown up – well, somewhat. While Harold (John Cho) is starting a lovely life in the suburbs with Maria (Paula Gracés), Kumar is happy right where he is, on his couch, getting high. The guys aren’t only divided in terms of their way of life; Harold and Kumar had a serious falling out and don’t speak anymore. However, when a mysterious package arrives at the apartment for Harold, Kumar’s left with no choice but to head over to his ex-buddy’s new posh digs and hand it over personally. Bring these two back together during the holiday, toss in a little weed and you know what happens, Christmastime shenanigans ensue!

Not only do franchise screenwriters Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have the benefit of having created these characters and worked with them for years, but they’ve introduced us to two guys who are incredibly adaptable. Throw them into just about any situation and not only will hilarity likely follow, but their signature traits we’ve come to know and love will ultimately shine through. The result? A film packed with laughs, but also with characters you genuinely care about, too, and Hurwitz and Schlossberg know it.

In honor of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas’ November 4th release, Hurwitz and Schlossberg took the time to talk all about the franchise from the inception of the films to embracing 3D, breaking the fourth wall and much more. Check it all out in the interview below.
