Jurassic Park 4: Director Updates

By Dave Bouressa

"Welcome to Jurassic Park".

And suddenly you are back on the island, running from a T-Rex.

Jurassic Park has been a film franchise that has stood out for many people as one that not only revolutionized visual effects in film, but in story telling. Unfortunately, throughout the years, the franchise has been arguably decreasing in the eyes of the people. From the classic first film, to "The Lost World" (which is usually you either love it or hate it) to Jurassic Park 3 (which is usually you hate it).

Fortunately, Director Colin Trevorrow hopes to bring Jurassic Park 4 out of it's predecessor's slump.

On the Jurassic Park Podcast, Trevorrow appeared as a special guest and gave tidbits about the upcoming film, including the appearance of a brand new dinosaur.

  • Trevorrow refused to answer “Would you like to get John Williams back making the music?” instead opting to say only “Do I love John Williams and all of his music? Of course.”
  • Trevorrow says “It’s important to make a movie for the fans but I also have to remember that there’s a lot of people who just couldn’t care less and need me to make a solid case for why the hell there’s a Jurassic Park 4 in the first place and I want to make a movie for them too.”
  • “This is not a paycheck gig for me and it’s not the movie that I’m making so I can make the movies that I really want to make. I actually want to make a kick-ass Jurassic Park movie.”
  • “When I get to sit down with guys like John Rosengrant and adjust the talon length on a dinosaur and then we’re looking at variations on skin colour, that never feels like work. That’s when I feel like a kid.”
  • “What is my favourite dinosaur? We have a new one that’s pretty cool. I’m not going to tell you anything about it, but… it’s pretty bad ass. I think Jack Horner said something about that too” – and indeed he did, as previously discussed here at the site.
  • “I feel like, obviously, everyone’s favourite is the T-Rex and there’s just something so iconic about that animal.”
  • Trevorrow suggested that fans don’t go looking for spoilers. He wants to cherish this time when no-one knows “what the hell we’re doing.”
  • One apparently key rumour-busting quote goes like this: “I saw some of the rumours on the internet and I would have all kinds of red flags going off if I heard they were going to muzzle a T-Rex. So I would say don’t believe everything you read, there are way more insiders on the internet than there are in real life.”
