Sam Neill, who you
may better remember as Dr. Alan Grant in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Jurassic Park, talked to the Dominion Post about Universal Pictures’ forthcoming sequel. His response was stomach-churning.
“I’m told it’s a big reboot, a total re-jig.”
The project, which was being called Jurassic Park IV, was put on hold this month so Safety Not Guaranteed‘s Colin Trevorrow could further develop the screenplay with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Behind-the-scenes rumblings were that the plot could be about the government who has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes.
And Collider, who caught wind of this shocking blurb, pointed out that producer Frank Marshall told them the project is not a reboot.
Still, you have to admit the timing is weird, especially since the 3-D re-release did quite well, and the fact that Trevorrow was scouting the same locations as the first film. Could Uni have decided they want a reboot instead of a sequel? Will they pull the ol’ title trick and have the park just re-open having similar events occur? If they do, expect the new title to be The Jurassic Park.
And I’m not one to shame a remake, but come on, Jurassic Park is a perfect movie. Neill shouldn’t even joke about it…
