Colin Trevorrow, director of last year’s funky indie drama “Safety Not Guaranteed” starring Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass, has been tapped to helm the fourth installment of “Jurassic Park” for Universal and producer Steven Spielberg.
Trevorrow is a bit of an odd choice for a summer studio tentpole film. “Safety Not Guaranteed”, his feature film directorial debut, was a pretty good indie flick, but it’s not exactly the kind of experience that sets someone up to direct, say, a big-budget monster movie. But then again, talent is talent, right?
No word on what “Jurassic Park 4” will be about, but you can probably count on dinosaurs. Lots and lots of CG-realized dinosaurs.
The last “Jurassic Park”, part 3, surfaced more than 12 years ago under the direction of Joe Johnston. It was a follow-up to Steven Spielberg’s first two movies, “Jurassic Park” and the first sequel, “The Lost World”. I personally thought “The Lost World” was pretty entertaining, though most people thought it was pretty pointless. But then again, isn’t giant dinosaurs running around onscreen the point?
The last movie, “Jurassic Park 3”, was tied to the first two movies by the presence of Sam Neill, while part 2, “The Lost World” had Jeff Goldblum. It will be curious to see which character they get from the first movie to tie the fourth one into the franchise. Of course, they could always start fresh. That’s one way to go, I guess.
Anyways, you can expect the dinos to roar again next year June 13, 2014.
