Colin Trevorrow talks about why he’ll not helm the next Jurassic World (Park?) movie…

June 9th, 2015 by James Campbell Comments


Ok, we have another story involving of Jurassic World. The good news is that it is not another trailer. Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World, recently took part in an interview with The Playlist.

Within this interview, Trevorrow talks about a number of topics, but most interestingly, he discusses the idea or returning for a sequel. Trevorrow stated that: “That’s something that Steven [Spielberg] and I talked about a long time ago and it’s a decision that we made early on in the process [for him to not return], because Steven was aware of how important it was to me to have a body of work and to exist in different worlds and to make different kinds of films. That’s a privilege that he’s had over the course of his career.

“We built this thing, and I’m not just going to walk away and leave them flailing with it… It really is important to me to ground it. Maybe that does mean that I’ll do some writing. We’re not exactly sure what form that’s going to take, and it might just be helping guide it forward creatively, but I really did try to imbue this movie with some ideas that would help us move forward”.

This interview seems to imply that, while Jurassic World will tell its own story, it will be setting up concepts for potential sequels. Personally, I hope this does not mean that the film will end on a cliffhanger. While I don’t mind when the Marvel films infrequently do this, after all, they release two movies a year, we do not know if Jurassic World will get a sequel, and if it does, it will not be out for, at least, two to three years.

Still, this is a worse case scenario, and based on Trevorrow’s comments, it doesn’t sound like this will be the case. However, the park will open in two days time. We won’t have long to wait and see.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
