Safety is not guaranteed for the fourth Jurassic Park, coming from director Colin Trevorrow. But the filmmaker wants fans of the dinosaur franchise to know that he’s treating his installment in the franchise with the utmost care and respect.
“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,” Trevorrow said in an interview with Schmoes Know.
To that end, he has a very valuable tool at his disposal: original Jurassic Park filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who is very much on board with helping the fourth film move along at the right pace.
“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,” Trevorrow says. “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.”
The director wouldn’t speak to Jurassic Park 4 plot rumors, but made it clear that “we definitely want to honor what came before us.”
