A top entertainment magazine, just recently had an interview with JP veteran star, Jeff Goldblum, who plays Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park (1993) and reprises that role in The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997). After talking a little about his latest film ‘Igby Goes Down,’ was able to answer some JP4 related questions.
Q: Sam Neill has already hinted that there is a good chance he’ll return in Jurassic Park 4, can you give us the same hint?
A: I will say that, like Sam, I do have a very good chance to be returning in JP4. I hope I do, it was great working with Steven in the last two movies and I would love to do it again.
Q: What has been happening in regards to the stage of the film?
A: Well, the film is still in the drawing board stage and Steven and Mr. Moehan are busy writing the script prepping it to make sure it is perfect.
Q: You have seen a small amount of the script, what was your reaction to it?
A: I was literally left speechless. Of the small part I saw I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t think it was possible to top the other three films, but believe me, it sure as heck looks like it will. It takes a more sci-fi approach with some science thrown in to make it more enjoyable.
Q: Can you share any info about the piece of script you saw?
A: Unfortunatly, no. I cannot say too much.
Q: What about dinosaurs?
A: Of course there’ll be dinosaurs. Steven has told me that my old nemesis, the T-rex (he laughs at the injury his character sustained in the first film), wil be back, possibly along with the Dilophosaurus, that venom spitting one and get this, maybe even a water dino, a Mososaur, or something like that.
Q: Has any other actor from the other JP films signed on to JP4?
A: Not as of now, Universal wants Vince Vaughn (Nick Van Owen) to return in this film and Cameron Thor might even be amongst the cast.
Thanks for taking time out of your schedule to do this interview with us.
The article concluded by saying Jeff Goldblum will be meeting with Steven in a few weeks, as to why was uncertain.
