Director Colin Trevorrow hints at future Jurassic World movies


The next entry in the JURASSIC PARK franchise, JURASSIC WORLD, is currently shooting in Hawaii and Empire caught up with director Colin Trevorrow, who discussed the premise of setting up the new film as a part of a series, rather than an "episodic" entry (it sounds like he's trying to say trilogy without saying trilogy). He also discussed the character relationship between Chris Pratt's ex-military character and Omar Sy's character, who are essentially best friends in the film. Trevorrow also dished a bit on the theme of the film, which sounds pretty consistent with the usual JURASSIC PARK theme.

On the discussion of sequels to JURASSIC WORLD:

“We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot,” the director/co-writer revealed. “We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.”

On Pratt and Sy's characters in the film and their potential to be recurring:

“He’s essentially Chris Pratt’s best friend,” he said of the Sy character. “They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films.”

On the theme of the film:

“It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time", he explained, "and so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?”

Yeah, just a few nuggets tossed our way, but interesting nonetheless. I'm excited to see Pratt in this film as I think it's cool as shit that Andy Dwyer is becoming a big action star. It's just nuts. In just about all the press Trevorrow has done for the film so far (which isn't much), he always comes across as someone that is passionate about the gig and really wants to deliver the magic of the experience of seeing JURASSIC PARK for the first time. It's already in my top 5 for 2015.

JURASSIC WORLD, starring Chris Pratt, Omar Sy, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, Judy Greer, Vincent D'Onofrio, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and BD Wong opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.
