Chris Pratt has been discussing his role in the upcoming re-imagining of the brilliant Jurassic Park. According to the star the new man behind the helm, Colin Trevorrow, has done a good job with creating a believable situation in which humans and dinosaurs are back together on the same island.
“What I liked about it was it answers the question of, ‘Why would you do that?’,” said Pratt. “Like, how do you suspend disbelief to be like, ‘Oh yes, let’s make this mistake again. We haven’t learned our lesson about dinosaurs, we should definitely live with them and see how that works out!’ after like three tries at it.
“They answer the question really well through the script. Colin did a great job of writing it and justifying it and in his own way having fun with that, so anybody who goes in with that question will be really amused – the way I was – about how they answer that.”
The star goes on to discuss his character, according to him its a sort of mix between the stars of the first few films, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill.
“He’s got a little of both,” says Pratt. “He’s got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism but also the Sam Neill excitement at the wonder of the biology of it all, so it’s a combination.”
It has also been announced that the film will be shot on both 35mm and 65mm, meaning it’s likely that there will be an IMAX release too. Shock horror I know.
Other recent tidbits of information include the fact that the new film will be set 22 years after the original and that Josh Brolin was undergoing talks for a major role. But solid pieces of information are still few and far between so we will be keeping a close eye on proceedings.
At the moment the film is scheduled for a UK release on 12th of June 2015. Though this is subject for change.
