The first plot details for the upcoming installment of Jurassic Park have come to light, and though they are as of yet unconfirmed, they are pretty friggin’ tasty! Read on for details, and look for the official word soon!
JoBlo cites a reliable source for the following info:
Jurassic Park 4 is set in present day Isla Nublar, 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 SeaWorld-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dinos for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dinos, 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 SeaWorld.
As part of a show, you ask? That’s right, folks, this will feature “tamed” dinos. 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), that turns out 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 fight the threat.
In coordination with the filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a yet-to-be-determined later date than originally announced, giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise. Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow had been tapped to helm the next installment in the dino-rific series. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver penned the script.
