Director Colin Trevorrow has a difficult task ahead of him with Jurassic Park 4. Reviving a franchise that hasn’t released an installment in more than a decade is a challenge of the first order.
During a recent interview with Schmoes Know, the director said that his sequel would focus on elements that made the original movie successful. “We really want to honor what came before us,” said Trevorrow. “We are very aware of how much a certain generation especially cares about this movie, and we talk about it all the time. Really the conversation is: It’s not about us, it’s not about our careers, it’s how we do make something that can stand with the first one.”
Steven Spielberg is already involved in guiding the team. “It’s incredible to have Steven, who’s done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of the story in a way that, for us, is very refreshing,” continued Trevorrow.
Rumors suggest that JP4 will return to Isla Nublar, the location of the first movie. But Trevorrow, who is known for his work on Safety Not Guaranteed, has reportedly made a number of changes to the script.
Jurassic Park 4 is expected to reach theaters during the summer of 2015.
