Because, you know, your safety isn’t guaranteed when you go to… never mind. In a fairly surprising bit of news, it’s being reported that Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) has been hired to direct Jurassic Park IV for Universal Pictures. Per Deadline, “He met with the studio and filmmakers, and they felt he was a good match for the material, having grown up a huge fan of the trilogy and part of a new generation of directors steeped in all things dinosaur. They felt he would preserve and protect the characters in the story they created.”
Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are penning the fourth installment with a targeted June 13, 2014 release planned. Unconfirmed storyline details report that the the film could be about the government who has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes.
I’m actually ok with this. I’m sure a lot of the big effects sequences are being pre-visualized already and if this is like any other movie Trevorrow will probably have a 2nd unit director shoot most of the action anyway. So maybe we’ll get some nice characters this time around?
What do you think? Have you seen Safety Not Guaranteed?
