Colin Trevorrow over Jurassic World sequel

Jurassic World

Nadat Jurassic World afgelopen maand de derde best scorende film werd, hebben Universal Pictures en Amblin Entertainment bekendgemaakt dat de film een sequel zal krijgen. Deze wordt op dit moment al ontwikkeld. Jurassic World regisseur Colin Trevorrow en Derek Connolly schrijven momenteel het scenario. Trevorrow vertelde in een interview over het plot van de aankomende film:

“[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That’ll get old real fast….I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponise it and later on we found it could be used for energy. And this isn’t something necessarily that was in the book but is a seed that I wanted to plant in this movie, is that might be able to grow in more of these movies if they decide to make more of them, is: What if this went open source? It’s almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?’

“And Dr Wu says in the film, when he’s warning Dr Mesrani, ‘We’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur’. I think that’s an interesting idea that even if we don’t explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand. I shouldn’t use the word universe, because people will think we’re making a Jurassic World universe – we’re not.”

Trevorrow zal niet in de regiestoel zitten voor de sequel. Wie de film zal regisseren is nu nog onduidelijk. De vijfde film in de Jurassic Park franchise zal te zien zijn vanaf 22 juni 2018. Chris Pratt en Bryce Dallas Howard zullen wederom de hoofdrollen op zich nemen.
