Colin Trevorrow Talks Potential Sequels to Jurassic World
April 23, 2014
Next summer, Universal Pictures will be bringing us the fourth entry in the fan favorite "Jurassic Park" franchise with Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World, and they're not planning on stopping there. Speaking with Empire, Trevorrow says the topic of sequels to the 2015 release is something they've already been talking about, saying:
"We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot. We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story."
Even though we know very little about the new characters that we'll be seeing in Jurassic World, Trevorrow mentioned one of them in particular who the focus could potentially be on, X-Men: Days of Future Past star Omar Sy.
"He's essentially Chris Pratt's best friend. They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films."
Trevorrow also laid out a very cryptic teaser for the upcoming film, which will return to Isla Nublar, the island from the first film.
"It's about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time, and so now we've brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?"
The highly-anticipated sequel also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, BD Wong, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath and Lauren Lapkus.
It will be directed by Trevorrow from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing. Jurassic World is set for released on June 12, 2015.
