The 73-year-weak actor reprises his characteristic as palaeontologist Dr. Alan Grant, the character he first played in Spielberg’s 1993 blockbuster, in the latest movie in the dinosaur action franchise and he has teased that director Colin Trevorrow approached the mission with the same “childlike sense of surprise” that ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’ filmmaker Spielberg did.
Sam said: “It be going to be a mountainous film. Colin Trevorrow has that childlike sense of surprise, playfulness and inventiveness that (Steven) Spielberg has. We really shot a six-hour movie. We have been all very gung-ho.
“With a bit of luck, there’ll be thousands of massive cinemas ready for it because or no longer it’s a mountainous film for giant audiences.”
The ‘Rams’ star returns to the sequence with Laura Dern (Dr. Ellie Sattler) and Jeff Goldblum (Dr. Ian Malcolm) and Sam hinted that sparks may fly between his and Laura’s alter egos in the film – which is decided for release in 2022.
Asked about what to build a question to from Dr. Grant in the upcoming movie, he told Variety: “Same character, however varied world, varied occasions. Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler haven’t considered each varied for some time, so that you are going to glance how that pans out.”
Production on the movie was achieved in the UK amid the coronavirus pandemic last year and Sam loved 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 somewhere between rehab, summer camp and Easter break. We have been compulsorily in each varied’s company and worthy richer for it. If we have been capturing in L.A., we would traipse off to our varied caves every night time, however we acquired to know each varied so worthy better.
“I by no means felt less than privileged to be in work last year. So many folks haven’t had a sniff of a job for over a year and I can imagine how frightfully miserable that is and how worthy anxiety it need to induce.”
