Thankfully last week it was confirmed that ‘Jurassic Park 4’ was back in pre-production after its recent but brief hiatus. And now the project due to be helmed by Colin Trevorrow (‘Safety Not Guaranteed’) and written by Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa, Derek Connolly and Trevorrow has had some initial plot details revealed. Word is that the action will indeed return to the original island featured in the first ‘Jurassic Park’ movie Isla Nublar and a whole new park has been built. Not only that but it’s running successfully and gaining huge numbers of visitors. The wildlife however now due to the disastrous events that previously occurred at the park have been ‘tamed’ somewhat. But a ‘new’ dinosaur still manages to cause a certain degree of havoc on the island putting the visitors in mortal danger. Head below for the full plot details.
“JURASSIC PARK 4, set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino’s for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dino’s, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.
As part of a show, you ask? That’s right, folks, this will feature “tamed” dino’s. In fact, our source indicated that the usually menacing Velociraptors (which will finally be muzzled, along with the T-Rex – until they’re not) will actually be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur, not seen in any of the previous films (and not disclosed to us) shows to be much smarter than originally thought and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.
So, to sum it all up, JURASSIC PARK 4 will take place back on Isla Nublar with a fully operational dinosaur theme park (I’m sure no expense was spared) that’s both prosperous and safe, until a new dinosaur figures out a way to wreak havoc, causing the use of the now tamed Velociraptors (and T-Rex? Unclear) as a means to fighting the threat.”
‘Jurassic Park 4’ will be shot in 3D and arrive during the Summer of 2015.
