Our friends at JoBlo may have discivered what Universal’s new 3-D Jurassic Park, now aiming for a 2015 release, will actually be about – with director with Trevorrow saying his goal for the film is to “want people to feel like it’s the last day of 6th grade again.”
From their source, “Jurassic Park 4 set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino’s for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dino’s, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.
As part of a show, you ask? That’s right, folks, this will feature “tamed” dino’s. In fact, our source indicated that the usually menacing Velociraptors (which will finally be muzzled, along with the T-Rex – until they’re not) will actually be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur, not seen in any of the previous films (and not disclosed to us) shows to be much smarter than originally thought and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.
So, to sum it all up, Jurassic Park 4 will take place back on Isla Nublar with a fully operational dinosaur theme park (I’m sure no expense was spared) that’s both prosperous and safe, until a new dinosaur figures out a way to wreak havoc, causing the use of the now tamed Velociraptors (and T-Rex? Unclear) as a means to fighting the threat.”
This removes the insanely lame original approach of using the dinosaurs as military weapons, and brings the fun and magic back to franchise first delivered to cinemas thanks to Steven Spielberg. Personally, I couldn’t as for more. This sounds AMAZING. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver will continue working on a screenplay that should be ready later this year.
