Earlier in the week we learned that Universal Pictures postponed Jurassic Park IV previously announced 2014 release in order to deliver a quality product.
We also heard that it would be directed by Safety Not Guaranteed’s Colin Trevorrow who has teased a few things indicating that his sequel will take place on Isla Nublar, the site of the original Steven Spielberg‘s film as well as a ‘new dinosaur’ that will make us ‘keep the lights on after you see this movie.’
According to JoBlo’s ‘trusted and reliable source’ a rumored plot synopsis has landed online. If this suggested plot synopsis is to be believed, we’re going to be seeing some rather crazy commotion in the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise. The sequel will reportedly involve fully functioning amusement park that so many entrepreneurs have tried to get off the ground in the previous films.
Here’s the sequel concept, which could be interpreted as a potential spoiler:
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.
Does it appeal to you?
It sounds like the plot of Jaws 3, but with dinosaurs, particularly the bit about finally getting underwater dinosaurs.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes scribes Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are behind the screenplay for JP 4 with Spielberg currently working with Trevorrow and producers on it.
The fourth entry in the JP film series is expected to hit theaters in the summer of 2015.
