Jurassic World Director Talks Sequel

Not many people would begrudge Colin Trevorrow resting on his laurels after directing a movie that currently sits third in the list of highest-grossing films of all-time and has a box office taking of (at time of writing) $1.56 billion. However, it appears the director is going to do anything but.

Still three years out from a recently-announced sequel, and Trevorrow is already talking – confidently, I may add – about what we may see in the Jurassic World follow-up.

Speaking to Wired, Trevorrow revealed that we may be about to move on from the tried and tested formula of humans running away from dinosaurs.

“[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That’ll get old real fast. . . I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponize it and later on we found it could be used for energy….And this isn’t something necessarily that was in the book but is a seed that I wanted to plant in this movie, is that might be able to grow in more of these movies if they decide to make more of them, is: What if this went open source? It’s almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?”

“And Dr Wu says in the film, when he’s warning Dr Mesrani, ‘we’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur’. I think that’s an interesting idea that even if we don’t explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand. I shouldn’t use the word universe, because people will think we’re making a Jurassic World universe — we’re not.”

Trevorrow also seemed to confirm that there would be more visits to the park after his 2018 sequel, though he may not be involved.

“Whether or not I am involved in later installments or not, I felt it was important for me to set the table. I know they’re going to want to make them, I know that Stephen definitely wants to make several of these movies, and I want to do my job in setting the table for something that can be rich and thoughtful and interesting.”

The as-yet-untitled Jurassic World sequel, once again starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, is set to be released on 22 June 2018.
