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...
