Sam Neill knows something about the next Jurassic Park movie…

May 22nd, 2013 by Marc Comments

So Jurassic Park IV came and, em, went. Mysteriously only days after director Collin Trevorrow Tweeted an image of the new Isla Nublar.

And everyone kind of just thought that was it. Now however, it seems there may be a little more to the tale.

CBM are quoting original Jurassic Park star Sam Neil, who played Doctor Alan Grant (above), as saying that he wasn’t going to be in the fourth movie because “I’m told it’s a big reboot, a total re-jig”.

Which is odd, because producer Frank Marshall clearly stated last year that this would be a sequel NOT a reboot. Is it possible that the studio, Universal, are unsure what what way to go with the movie? Maybe they are torn over the current trend of reboots and the older notion of a good old-fashioned sequel.

Either way, we’ll be watching the screens and dailies for more news on this one…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
