Michael Crichton’s Micro may be the smallest big movie ever planned…

June 28th, 2015 by James Campbell Comments


With Jurassic World taking in massive amounts of money at the box office, one must wonder, where will we go next? There will be some time to fill between Jurassic World and its potential sequel. Frank Marshall (the producer of Jurassic World) seems to think that we shouldn’t be thinking bigger, but smaller.

Just this week, Marshall purchased the rights to film Michael Crichton’s (Jurassic Park) book Micro. In Micro, a biotech company lures a group of college students to Hawaii. Once there, the students are shrunk down and released into the rain forest.

This certainly sounds like a fun concept for a film, somewhat like a conspiracy thriller version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. If the special effects are handled correctly, this could end up looking spectacular.

No word has been announced on who will direct the film, though based on this description; I will be keeping my eyes on this project.

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.
