So it seems like Jurassic Park IV is actually a thing, folks. The studio has been taking slow steps with the project’s development so as to not rush things and very little was known about the actual storyline until now.
JoBlo received word from a “trusted and reliable source” and exclusively unveiled a detailed description as to what Jurassic Park IV’s plot will entail:
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.
Though there has been no word regarding the cast just yet, the film is said to be directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) alongside Steven Spielberg as one of the film’s executive producers. Confirmation was received that Universal plans on releasing JP4 in the summer of 2015.
I’m a huge Jurassic Park nerd and while the 1st one could never be replaced and the 2nd and 3rd were sorta “meh”… I have this strange hope that IV won’t be so bad. It may even be great!
What do you guys think?
