“Safety Not Guaranteed” helmer Colin Trevorrow says that despite the much bigger scale, getting to direct the fourth “Jurassic Park” film isn’t as different as he expected. He tells Schmoes Knows:
“Surprisingly it’s not that different [from ‘Safety Not Guaranteed]. We have a very small team who we are working with right now. It’s incredible to have Steven [Spielberg], who has done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and this understanding of the language of story – in a way that for us, is very refreshing. it’s not like getting notes from a studio executive. it’s really trying to crack this and make it the best movie it can be.
We definitely want to honor what came before us. We are very aware of how much a certain generation especially cares about this movie and we talk about it all the time in really good conversations. it’s not about us, it’s not about our careers, it’s – how do we make something that can stand up [against the original]?”
