Colin Trevorrow Reveals ‘Jurassic World 2’ Inspiration

22 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

‘Jurassic World’ 2 could be about competing dino-makers.

After the success of Jurassic World earlier this year, director Colin Trevorrow has become one of the most in demand directors in Hollywood. But now that (spoiler alert) the scary hybrid dinosaur Indominus rex has been terminated, what’s Owen (Chris Pratt, back for the sequel) and the gang (including Bryce Dallas Howard) to do?Like a prehistoric mosquito filled with dinosaur blood and encased in amber, Jurassic Park contains all the essential DNA of its modern-day offspring, Jurassic World. Before the hit dino-flick, he had only done one full length feature, Safety Not Guaranteed, but nows he’s on track to direct a main Star Wars feature and write the script for the upcoming Jurassic World 2. And just as director Colin Trevorrow’s blockbuster reboot drew inspiration from Park in ways big and small, so it seems will the Jurassic World sequel.

Trevorrow, who is co-writing and executive producing the sequel, said in a recent episode of the Jurassic Cast Podcast that the follow-up also has its foundation in the 1993 original. “Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote,” Trevorrow said, referring to the black-clad chaos theoretician played by Jeff Goldblum. “It’s, ‘You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you knew what you had, you patented it, you packaged it, slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you want to sell it.’ That to me is Jurassic World. How can we know what to expect?’” He went on to add that with the first in the series doing so well, he has a “lot of room to run” with the script. The ending of JW doesn’t exactly suggest an obvious sequel-setup, or at least not one that fits within the boundaries of what we’ve seen from the franchise so far. We were thinking one possible direction was the angle of dinos being weaponised, with the tech available to the highest bidder for whatever nefarious plan they have in place.

Wu actually fears competing dino creation in Jurassic World, saying: “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,” said Trevorrow. “I shouldn’t use the word universe, because people will think we’re making a ‘Jurassic World’ universe — we’re not.” One other notable moment is when he adds that “Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it’s her story that mirrors this changing world.” It has already been confirmed that Bryce Dallas Howard’s character, Claire Dearing, and Chris Pratt’s, Owen Grady, will be returning for the movie. And he’s selling it all on a quite from Jeff Goldblum’s Dr Ian Malcolm in the original Jurassic Park: “Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. I feel like the audience has given us permission, to a certain extent, to take this to the next level.” He continued, “I don’t necessarily mean in scale.

It’s about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals, and with animals in general, and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life.”
