'Jurassic Park 4' Plot: Will the Sequel Feature Velociraptors as Good Guys?Eric Walkuski |
'Jurassic Park 4' doesn't come out until 2015 (after being pushed back from its June 2014 release date), but we can start getting excited about it right now if the rumored plot turns out to be true. So, do you want to know what the dino-sequel might be about?
A "reliable source" of JoBlo.com's has passed along some intriguing plot details for the film, which is set to be directed by Colin Trevorrow. In short, the film will take place at the original site of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar, which is now fully operational. Yes, we actually get to see Jurassic Park as it was always intended.
Of course, things can't remain peachy for long. Here are the alleged details. [UPDATE: Slashfilm says they've checked in with a number of sources who say that "some" of the information below is true but "most" of it, is not.]
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.
Keep in mind, some or all of these details could have been from the previous script that was deemed too expensive for Universal and is currently undergoing massive rewrites and, could jettison this storyline (assuming it existed in the first place).
But, some of this sounds really spectacular; epic in a way that the last two 'Jurassic Park' films simply weren't. Now we must wait and see if it turns out to be true. (Fingers crossed.)
