HOLLYWOOD – Rumor has it that Jurassic World 2 will feature amnesia as an extremely important plot point.
Amnesia is to be a large part of the plot of Jurassic World 2. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both set to return and Colin Trevorrow is currently writing thee script with Derek Connolly. Executive Producer Steven Spielberg spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec about the concept for the new film:
This is now going to be the fifth Jurassic Park/World film and one of the sticking points we’ve had in trying to move the story along is the idea that, following the events that have taken place in the previous four films, anyone would still be willing to open a park using DNA resurrected dinosaurs as an attraction. We toyed with the idea of moving along the military angle, but they had also been so inept and the dinosaurs so obviously ill-suited to that kind of work that whoever suggested it would be fired for gross incompetence.
So how did you resolve the issue?
A solar flare sends out a mysterious stream of cosmic radiation and everyone on the planet loses their memory. It also effects hard-drives and videotape so that all records of the previous parks are lost. A new entrepreneur (who also can’t fly a helicopter, to comic/tragic effect) decides to fund the research and build a new park. But with a twist.
It’s now a nudist colony for new age types who want to get in touch with their inner dinosaur.
A nudist colony?
Yeah. The idea is that they are getting in touch with their atavistic cave man. They want to feel what it would be like to actually be in the Jurassic period. Of course, they have warnings about how dangerous it might be but they dismiss them because they don’t remember not only what happened the last four times, but even that there were a last four times. And from a cinematic point of view imagine the extra layer of vulnerability as the velociraptors begin their hunt and everyone begins to run, with all a-jiggle.
Fantastic I know. And Jeff Goldblum has signed up to return. He doesn’t even want any money. He just wants to be there with everyone letting it all hang out.
Jurassic Nudist Colony will be released in 2018.
