An interview with Norwegian film director Harald Zwart

Harald Zwart (44) was born in the Netherlands, but raised in Fredrikstad and Lærdal in Norway. He is currently living in Los Angeles and has directed two feature films in the US; “One Night at McCool’s” and “Agent Cody Banks”. Zwart is the first Norwegian director to become a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA).

He made his English-language debut with “One Night at McCool’s” and followed that up with “Agent Cody Banks,” a teen James Bond-like tale. He also is exec producer of the “Dead Snow,” a hot Norwegian horror title that screened at the Sundance Film Festival and got picked up by IFC Films.

Zwart spoke with The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit ahead of his Berlin debut with “Pink Panther 2,” the second installment of the relaunched Inspector Clouseau franchise.
