The much-anticipated movie will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who tossed out the old screenplay for Jurassic Park IV that featured dino-human fusions that carried weapons, and replaced it with his own that he co-wrote along with Derek Connally.
JoBlo.com reported the director gave some insight into what the new plot would feature. Rather than the laser-mounted raptors, it appears that John Hammond's dream of opening a dino-filled park has grew into fruition on the island from the 1997 film Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar. The Sea World-esque park will be zoo-like, but it not suggested that you feed the animals.
The fourth film has been pushed back several times but it appears that this time they mean it. No casting has been announced, or performed, as of yet. So, any speculation on how old characters may play into the story line would be merely guess-work.
YouTube user Oliver Thompson recorded what was supposedly a pitch trailor for the film presented Iain McCaig, which currently doesn't seemingly follow the plot idea tossed out by Trevorrow. The pitch trailer is below, although the authenticity of the video can't be confirmed.
Thompson said this to Blast Out Your Stereo:
All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool!
Who's excited? What would you want to see from the film?
