Director Colin Trevorrow is finally getting back to work on Jurassic Park IV, after the project was given a 2015 release date. The filmmaker recently spoke about having original Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg on board as an executive producer.
"It's incredible to have Steven, who's done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of the story in a way that for us is very refreshing. It's not like getting notes from a studio executive, it's really just trying to crack this and make it the best it can be."
When asked if it was a reboot, he explained that he knows how much the original trilogy means to the fans, and that he wants to honor the trilogy that came before.
"We don't want to create a new scoop here, but we definitely want to honor 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 can stand with the first one."
Nothing has been confirmed as far as the story, but we reported last month that the plot is set on Isla Nublar, Site A from the original Jurassic Park, where an actual amusement park has opened featuring live, tame dinosaurs. Part of this theme park will be an underwater attraction. The plot reportedly thickens when a new dinosaur finds a way to cause chaos on the island.
