Sam Neill: Jurassic World: Dominion to be a ‘large film’ with many similarities to Steven Spielberg’s authentic

The 73-year-old actor reprises his function as palaeontologist Dr. Alan Grant, the character he first performed in Spielberg’s 1993 blockbuster, within the newest movie within the dinosaur action franchise and he has teased that director Colin Trevorrow approached the venture with the identical “childlike sense of wonder” that ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’ filmmaker Spielberg did.

Sam mentioned: “It’s going to be a big film. Colin Trevorrow has that childlike sense of wonder, playfulness and inventiveness that (Steven) Spielberg has. We really shot a six-hour movie. We were all very gung-ho.

“Hopefully, there will be hundreds of large cinemas prepared for it as a result of it is a large film for giant audiences.”

The ‘Rams’ star returns to the series with Laura Dern (Dr. Ellie Sattler) and Jeff Goldblum (Dr. Ian Malcolm) and Sam hinted that sparks could fly between his and Laura’s alter egos in the film – which is set for release in 2022.

Asked about what to expect from Dr. Grant in the upcoming movie, he told Variety: “Same character, however completely different world, completely different occasions. Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler have not seen every other for a while, so you may see how that pans out.”

Production on the movie was completed in the UK amid the coronavirus pandemic last year and Sam enjoyed the tight-knit atmosphere with the cast and crew due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

Sam – who also appears with new franchise stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard – explained: “It was someplace between rehab, summer season camp and Easter break. We had been compulsorily in every other’s firm and far richer for it. If we had been taking pictures in L.A., we would go off to our completely different caves each evening, however we obtained to know every other so a lot better.

“I never felt less than privileged to be in work last year. So many people haven’t had a sniff of a job for over a year and I can imagine how frightfully depressing that is and how much anxiety it must induce.”
