Jurassic Park 4 director: We want to honour what came before us

Project is still very much moving forward despite postponement of release date according to director Colin Trevorrow

Plans for the Jurassic Park reboot remain on course despite recent reports that they were being put on hold.


Colin Trevorrow, director of the fourth film, has revealed that he is working hard on “trying to crack this and make it the best movie it can be,” before saying “we definitely want to honour what came before us.”

Plot details remain sketchy but Trevorrow revealed a little about his plans to please dedicated dino-fans, saying: “We definitely want to honour what came before us… We are very aware of how much a certain generation especially cares about this movie and we talk about it all the time and really the conversation is: it’s not about us, it’s not about our careers, it’s how do we make something that really can stand up with the first film.”

It’s a sentiment he’s shared before, taking to Twitter to abate concern and ask those with an Isla Nublar worthy vision to speak up and share:

Speaking to Schmoes Know at the 2013 Saturn Awards, Trevorrow continued: “We have a very small team who we are working with right now. It’s incredible to have Steven [Spielberg] who’s done this for decades and has such incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of story in a way that for us is very refreshing. It’s not like getting notes from a studio executive. It’s really trying to crack this and make it the best movie it can be.”


Here’s a little something to get you in the Prehistoric mood:
