Since the reveal of the fourth instalment of ‘Jurassic Park’, entitled ‘Jurassic World’ very little else has been revealed about the film itself. We’ve seen a number of concept stage dinosaurs which were rumoured to be from the film but ultimately turned out to be concept art for a game that never saw development.
Rumors have circulated for a while that the film may be about the park some time later as it is officially open to the public, but the studio have not confirmed this rumour. Nor the question of the film being a sequel or a reboot of the franchise.
Director Colin Trevorrow has now addressed this directly to his followers on twitter.
“Reboot is a strong word,” he said. “This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.”
The fact that it is set 22 years after the first film, it could mean the theme park rumours are indeed correct.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson and Irrfan Khan will star in the film with Steven Spielberg returning to produce. Trevorrow directs the Dino-Sequel from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly.
