Jurassic World round-up
The latest on Jurassic Park 4 - aka Jurassic Work - which is set to start shooting shortly...
Production isn't far off now on the fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World, which is going before the cameras in the next few months.
One key component of the new movie is actor Chris Pratt, who's set to build on the fine work he's put on the screen over the years. Pratt is best known as Andy from Parks And Recreation, and he was also a standout in the movie Moneyball. 2014 looks to be a big year for Pratt too, with The LEGO Movie and Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy arriving.
He's playing the lead in Jurassic World, which is being directed by Colin Trevorrow (whose excellent Safety Not Guaranteed is finally getting a disc release in the UK). Chatting to MTV, Pratt revealed of the new movie that "what I liked about it was that it answers the question of, 'why would you do that?' Like how do you suspend disbelief to be like, 'Oh yes, let's make this mistake again. We haven't learned our lesson about dinosaurs, we should definitely live with them and see how that works out.' after three tries at it".
He added that "they answer the question really well through the script. Colin did a great job of writing it and justifying it and in his own way having fun with that, so anybody who goes in with that question will be really amused – the way I was – about how they answer that".
So what can be expect from his character? "He's got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism but also the Sam Neill excitement at the wonder of the biology of it all, So it's a combination".
Furthermore, it's been revealed that Colin Trevorrow will shoot Jurassic World on film, using both 35mm and 65mm. That makes an IMAX release something of an inevitability.
Jurassic World is due in cinemas in the summer of 2015.
