It’s hard not to speculate about the future of the Jurassic Park franchise. Here at HorrorMovies.ca, we aren’t just incredibly smart and handsome reporters, we’re also fans. And as such, we enjoy hearing all the latest gossip and rumors that emerge when discussing upcoming blockbuster spectacles. With “Jurassic Park 4”, there seems to be no end to those rumors as “leaks” seemingly creep out every month or so.
A little while ago we talked about one of the latest supposed leaks, which revealed what the possible plot of “Jurassic Park 4” would be. Since then there hasn’t been much else to say. However, director Colin Trevorrow recently spoke to the Jurassic Cast and decided to squash a rumor or two while adding more wood to the fires of speculation.
In his interview, Colin discussed the recent plot leak and said that “I saw some of the rumors 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.” Nicely put.
Colin also acknowledge that there are pressures from all sides and from every division of the Jurassic fandom. “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.”
Finally, the director inadvertently created a bit more speculation when he was asked whether or not he wanted John Williams to return to score the film. To which he coyly responded with “Do I love John Williams and all of his music? Of course.”
We’re still a long way off from the 2015 release date of “Jurassic Park 4” and with no solid news on the horizon, one can only imagine that the rumor mill will be working in full force in the coming year. In a perfect world, I’d rather avoid all rumors and possible spoilers, but it’s pretty difficult to be immune to all that when you’re in my position. However, the best thing any of us can do is to not make up our minds before we see the finished project. Don’t let speculation taint reality, whether it’s a rumor that gets you excited or upset. Either extreme can have a negative impact on the way you’ll view the film when it’s finally here.
