Colin Trevorrow says he got some help when writing the dialogue for Ian Malcolm for Jurassic World 2. While part of that came from looking back to Michael Crichton's novels a lot, Trevorrow tells the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via Coming Soon) that Jeff Goldblum was a big part of creating the lines for his character. Read what Trevorrow said below:
“You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me – and I’m not going to do an impression – but he was like, ‘Look, I’ve added a couple of things, and I thought I’d perform it for you.’ [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that’s – it was almost better than being there on set. It was great.”
I swear if this film features Malcolm just laughing and cackling I'll be happy. It's super cool that an actor can be so in tune with their character that they feel comfortable enough to change dialogue and pitch it to the man who wrote it! Jurassic World 2 releases June 22nd, 2018.
