Wait… Universal are considering a Jurassic Park/Fast & Furious crossover!?

May 31st, 2021 by Marc Comments

You may recall a few weeks back that there was a fun story (here) that Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriquez and director Justin Lin with their tongues firmly in cheek (em, presumably) that they’re up for a Fast and Furious/Jurassic Park crossover. 

At the time Ridrquez was asked if we could ever see the gang crossover with the Jurassic Park franchise – also owned by Universal Pictures –  and her response was pretty enthusiastic: “I love it, dude! I’m all in.”

Curiously, she added: “We were talking about this yesterday. It’s so funny, but I was talking about this yesterday. Because once you reach a certain pinnacle, there’s nowhere to go but to cross-brand and merge. It’s what big corporations do with each other when they get too big, you know what I mean? You just have to brand and merge with each other.”

On top of this, at the same time, Lin said of the crossover: “Well, I’ve never said never to anything. And the fact that part of our philosophy is not to ever be boxed in or labeled. And that’s all I will say.”

Now scooper Daniel Richman has said that this is something Universal is actually looking into (here)!

Word is that with the Jurassic World trilogy about to wrap with Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming third movie and with the Fast and Furious franchise entering the final lap (will three movies), both franchises will be looking for ways to expand and add to their brands… with spinoffs being the way the Fast franchise is already going, it would make sense that they’d be looking for new directions and, well, with shared universes being the flavour of the moment, it would certainly say this could be a big consideration.

I would, however, doubt very much it would happen… remember when there was almost a Jump Street/Men in Black/Ghostbusters universe?

But… as dumb as it would be, I would be there opening night and I make no apologies.


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….
