Colin Trevorrow Talks Jurassic World Sequel


J.A. Bayona’s sequel to Jurassic World is cooking along quite nicely and recently, the film’s writer/producer (and director of JW) Colin Trevorrow sat down with Mtv’s Happy Sad Confused Podcast to talk about what to expect from the next entry into the dinoriffic franchise!

It is thus far my favorite creative collaboration that I’ve ever been involved in. J.A. Bayona is a completely different kind of filmmaker and thinker than I am, yet we do have a lot of things in common so I was able to craft something specifically for another filmmaker that I admire. I built a Spanish horror thriller with dinosaurs in it that I probably wouldn’t have built for myself. I gotta tell you, man, I think that’s gonna be a better movie. I just do. It’s just deeper, it’s more character-based, it definitely leans into suspense especially in the second half. It does have the big action in the middle and there’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching… I’ve started to see stuff come together and it’s just insane.

Trevorrow promises that the new flick will explore “new themes that have never been examined in a Jurassic movie before.
