Colin Trevorrow talks Jurassic Park 4

The director of the fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise has been chatting about the film...

The on-again, off-again, on-again fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise once again has a provisional release date (well, it's due in 2015), but given the history of the project we're containing our excitement until the first shot is in place. A (very) positive aspect of the planned film is that Colin Trevorrow, director of the rather fantastic Safety Not Guaranteed, is attached to direct.

He has been chatting about the film recently, telling Schmores Know that "it's incredible to have Steven, who's done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of the story in a way that for us is very refreshing. It's not like getting notes from a studio executive, it's really just trying to crack this and make it the best it can be".

On the topic of whether the film would be a reboot, Trevorrow was very clear. "We don't want to create a new scoop here, but we definitely want to honour what came before us". He added that "we are very aware of how much a certain generation especially cares about this movie and we talk about it all the time and really the conversation is: it's not about us, it's not about our careers, it's 'how do we make something that can stand with the first one?'"

Rumours suggest the film will be set on Isla Neblar, where a new Park has been opened and all is going swimmingly until, surprise surprise, a rogue dinosaur decides to play up. But take that with a pinch of salt for the time being...

Just through a little Goldblum into the mix and I'm sold.

I always thought that a sequel could be built-up around a group of mercenaries going back to a locked-down 'site 1' to locate and retrieve the cans of stolen dino-DNA that Nedrick dropped during his unsuccessful escape from the island.

That's a bit 'Aliens' isn't it?

I do hope the owner of the new park ik Dodgson's BioSyn. You know, the guy with the sunglasses in JP1 that pays Nedry to steal the embryo dinos because his company is years behind InGen. And that the absense of the Spinosaurus from InGen's list (see JP3) is explaind as BioSyn reusing Site B as a factory floor for the new park. Plus, it might explain the Pterodactyls that are locked up in JP3 but flew around freely in The Lost World (JP2). Those from JP3 are new ones from BioSyn. I could go on for hours, but I really hope they use some of the above. Or somebody here could tell me how to contact the production. You never know. :-p

agreed! Goldblum should be a must. like the Independance Day sequals.

For me, Jurassic Park is my Star Wars - I was 13 when the original came out and it not only blew my little pubertal mind, but actually influenced my choice of career when I grew up.

JP has been a victim of 2 disappointing sequels so far. I really, really hope they can finally do justice to the original.

What happened to Teenage Mutant Ninja Dinos?

How about a new park is built but its a great success and everyone has a nice time. No one is attacked due to the theme park following strict security procedures.

I really hope you work in a theme park where they've used the miracle of science to bring dinosaurs back to life. Do you get dental?

Spinosaurus is closely related to Baryonyx, which is confirmed as on the InGen list (it appeared in the first movie). So the simplest explanation is that they thought it was Baryonyx and were wrong.


That is of course one explaination, but wouldn't it be better for the interconnectivity of the series?

They should retitle as something like 'Jurrasic City' and have the dino's take over a derelict city but then somebody importat has to be rescued from the city... or something

pointless. The guy at the start tells him they're only good for 24 hours or something like that. So the embryos in that can would be long dead.

WTF JP2 was awesome! I don't get the internet hate. Everyone is crapping on how they're sold if Goldblum is in the fourth one, but guess what, he was in the second one!
