I’ll tell you, one good thing about the Hollywood remake machine is the nostalgia factor. If we’re on the brink of saying goodbye to all forms of originality, at the way least I guess we can get a shot of feeling like a kid again for a couple minutes.
And who better to pump the nostalgia well than the Jurassic Park franchise? I mean the whole thing is predicated on the fact that you liked dinosaurs when you were younger. The original was a shear revolution in filmmaking while the later installments seem to be more reliant on brand or spectacle. They do everything possible to make the viewing enjoyable, except putting together a decent story.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of the reboot is the potential for cameo appearances from your favorite stars that made the original so rebootworthy. Jurassic Park is no different from any franchise looking to appeal to new audiences with new films. World brought back BD Wong. Fallen Kingdom even had Jeff Goldblum repeating his signature “Life finds a way” mantra. So what’s in line for the next movie… what about the original cast?
ComicBook.com reported that during the red carpet ceremony at the Rocketman when Bryce Dallas Howard was asked by MTV News about sharing scenes with the original cast;
“Yes, very much so. If that happens, I don’t know… I don’t know what’s been confirmed or whatever, but I’ll blink if it’s happening and maybe…”
FYI – She blinks.
So did Ms. Howard just indirectly confirm the return of Tim and Lex? Maybe Muldoon survived the raptor attack? Maybe Samuel L. Jackson comes back and only this time he vapes? We’ll have to wait and see.
When it’s all said and done I’ll bet we get a CGI Hammond in a flashback scene.
