After being fired from Star Wars Episode IX for various reasons, Colin Trevorrow is back in the director's seat for Jurassic World 3. Trevorrow directed and co-wrote the first Jurassic World, and also helped write this June's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, so it seems like he is giving it his all for the prehistoric franchise.
Interestingly enough, without spoiling anything Trevorrow has stated that the third film in the franchise will be a science thriller, just like the first ever Jurassic Park. Considering how the first Jurassic World felt very similar to Jurassic Park, even featuring a number of callbacks to the Steven Spielberg classic, the statement might not mean much, though we'll have to wait and see how it does first.
Speaking with EW, Trevorrow went into great detail discussing how each installment in the franchise is like. He calls the first Jurassic World an action-adventure, while Fallen Kingdom feels like a horror-suspense film.
"If I could contextualize each film, I would say Jurassic World was an action adventure, Fallen Kingdom is kind of a horror suspense film, and Jurassic World 3 will be a science thriller in the same way that Jurassic Park was."
Considering how the first film was criticized for feeling too much like a nostalgia trip, we can only hope that the second installment does away with that. Then again, that might have been why the first film was such a success so who knows what direction the series will go.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom comes out on June 22.
