In Jurassic World, Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio) has overzealous ideas of arming raptors with weapons. While the idea is shut down in the Chris Pratt-starring movie, new details reveal that the sequel could bring this plot to life.
According to a report by ComicBook.com’s Charlie Ridgely, MyEntertainmentWorld.com recently updated their Jurassic World sequel-dedicated page to include a new synopsis.
“The adventures at the Jurassic World resort and theme park continue as the government has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes.”
This appears to imply that the sequel to the fourth-highest grossing movie of all time will follow the Jurassic War storyline. However, according to a report by SlashFilm.com’s Peter Sciretta, the sequel’s director J.A. Bayona said he’s “not that interested” in militarized dinosaurs.
“As a writer of the thing, I’m not that interested in militarized dinosaurs, at least not in practice,” Bayona said, per Sciretta’s report. “I liked it in theory as the pipe dream of a lunatic. When that idea was first presented to me as part of an earlier script, it was something that the character that ended up being Owen was for, that he supported, something that he was actively doing even at the beginning. [Writer] Derek [Connolly] and I—one of our first reactions was, ‘No, if anyone’s gonna militarize raptors, that’s what the bad guy does. He’s insane.'”
The untitled sequel to Jurassic World is set to release sometime in 2018.
