Jurassic Park 4

While fans have been skeptical about Universal's iconic 1993 dinosaur film classic (turned lackluster franchise) making a return with Jurassic Park 4, director Colin Trevorrow has been trying to give them faith in the sequel. Last time Trevorrow was asked about the sequel, he said, "We definitely want to honor what came before us.” This time he sat down with hardcore Jurassic Park fans from Jurassic Cast (via Bleeding Cool), and that's exactly who he wants to make the film for, at least to some extent, but he also knows that some people out there besides them need to have an interest in seeing the film. More below!

Trevorrow wouldn't go into specific plot details, but he did say:

"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.”

And if you're worried about some of the plot rumors online (we haven't published them), the director says:

“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.”

Of course, we still don't know any plot details at all, but that will come with time. One thing that might happen is the return of John Williams. The composer scored the first two installments of the franchise, but let Don Davis take over duties on the third film (which still used his themes). When asked if Trevorrow will bring back the iconic composer for the sequel, he dodged the question saying, "Do I love John Williams and all of his music? Of course.” Hardly a confirmation, but maybe Williams will make time to return to the franchise to give it a little more of a push to success.

Production on Jurassic Park 4 will likely begin late this year or early 2014 to make the non-specific 2015 release date that Universal revealed earlier this summer. Trevorrow will shoot the film in 3D with a script from Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (of Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg acting as producers. We're hoping some story details surface sooner than later. Stay tuned.

    Me too!! Im a giant fan of JP and really want this to get going, get some traction under those wheels and spit out a good JP4

    I think I'd be fine if Williams didn't return, I'd rather they spend that fortune on not rushing the other parts of the film.

      How would getting John Williams make them rush the movie? Getting John Williams on board wouldn't drastically change the pace of production. Unless you're referring to the budget. Even then, as of today (I know I'm replying 8 months later) the cast is all relatively unknown, which should leave enough money to afford Williams.

        I did mean money. The casting so far is a relief though.
  • Lackluster franchise? to you maybe! I love those films!
  • cobrazombie
    Yeah, those fourth movies in a franchise always work out just fine...

    John Williams doing the music isn't going to be the deciding factor in whether, or not the movie does well. If the movie sucks, it sucks...no matter who does the music.
    • Howard Hand
      The music has more of an effect on a movie than you think. Try imagining the Brachiosaurus scene from the first movie without John Williams's music.
