Sam Neill Thinks The Next Jurassic Park Is A Reboot

sam neill jurassic parkIn 2012, series producer Frank Marshall told Collider that the next Jurassic Park would definitely be a sequel and not a reboot. Seems so long ago now.

In the meantime, Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct, and got to work with his frequent collaborator Derek Connolly to do a rewrite of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver‘s screenplay.

More recently, the project was put on indefinite hold and while Universal have stressed that they’re supporting Trevorrow, we don’t know why the project is paused, or when it will start up again.

So, in truth, we don’t really know much about Universal’s current plans. Any sort of rewiring could be going on, even at this very moment. So every little bit is interesting…

Sometime Park explorer Sam Neill was speaking recently to The Dominion Post, with thanks to Collider for the link, when he said of Jurassic Park 4, or whatever it will be called:

I’m told it’s a big reboot, a total re-jig.

Now, he might be right, he might be wrong, or he might be right about what he means but is using the wrong language to express himself. I suspect it’s the latter.

My hunch is that there will be no recurring characters – and therefore cast members – and so that counts as a reboot to Neill. Perhaps he needs to read up on the exact legal definition of the term.

The only other clue as to what the film will or won’t contain comes from Trevorrow himself who was, at least before the hiatus, location scouting for somewhere to film scenes set on Isla Nublar.

I hope we’ll hear more about Trevorrow’s film soon. And I hope it’s still Trevorrow’s film when we do.
