Colin Trevorrow Offers an Update on Jurassic Park 4

Jason McDonald

While cruising the red carpet at the 2013 Saturn Awards, director Colin Trevorrow was approached by Josh Macuga over at “Schomes Know” for an update on “Jurassic Park 4.”  Obviously the director didn’t offer any groundbreaking revelations, but after the quasi-drama about the film’s status, it’s nice to know that things are still chugging along.

When asked about how many people are “in his ear” about the production of Jurassic Park, Colin revealed that he’s largely being left to his own devices, however, there is one omnipresent force watching over him.

It’s incredible to have Steven Spielberg, who’s done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understand 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 trying to crack this and make it the best it can be.

Colin was then asked about the potential plot of the film and what direction the movie would take.  Deftly avoiding any leaks, Colin simply said “We don’t want to create a new scoop here, but we definitely want to honor what came before us.”  What does that mean?  Well, it falls in line with Colin’s other remarks about recreating the feeling of seeing the original Jurassic Park for the very first time.

So with Spielberg there helping Trevorrow put the the film together and the team’s desire to “honor” the original film, do you feel better about the sequels chances of being a success?  Only time we tell, but you can let us know how you feel in the comments.

        All the while reading through this article, the image that kept popping in my mind was that awe-inducing scene in the first film where the breathtaking park and its dinosaur inhabitants were revealed for the first time during the jeep ride. I’m guessing this is the feel they’d like to both honor and replicate? I hope so.

        Whether it sucks or not I CAN’T WAIT! PLEASE HURRY! Well not too fast 😉 I will be excited to watch it regardless but I’d prefer it to not suck. P.S thanks for staying on with the production Spielberg, and not throwing this movie’s potential up for grabs to just anyone.
