The Jurassic World trilogy recently wrapped up with Dominion, and despite the movie being a box office hit, there's currently no word on future plans for the franchise. Funnily enough, the Fast & Furious series is also nearing its end, leaving Universal Pictures without any set path for two of its most popular and profitable properties.
For years, fans have joked that both franchises should be mashed together for a bonkers crossover event, and there's no denying that it could be a lot of fun. After all, now the racing series has headed into outer space, why not have Dominic Toretto punch a T-Rex?
Jurassic World Dominion established that dinosaurs now roam the Earth, so it wouldn't be as big a stretch as, say, the Jump Street series being mashed up with Men in Black (a crossover we still wish had happened).
Jurassic World and Jurassic World Dominion director Colin Trevorrow has been doing the rounds to promote the latter's upcoming Blu-ray release and was asked by ComicBook.com (via ActioNewz.com) for his thoughts on a potential crossover. Unsurprisingly, he's not a huge fan of the idea!
"I mean of course not," the filmmaker initially responded when asked if he'd like to see Vin Diesel's action hero square off with a dinosaur. "Because I am obviously like the most earnest maker of Jurassic Park movies that we have. I think that if one came in looking to watch them ironically as opposed to earnestly that might be exactly where you go."
"This idea is so new. That wasn't allowed when I was a kid, you didn't get to just like you did when you were playing with the toys, you smash them together. Now it's like, well whatever your parent company happens to own, you can [use]."
As for a possible Jurassic crossover he would like to be involved with, Trevorrow added, "I guess it would be 'Bourne' because that's...I feel like him running away from dinosaurs, he'd be effective but like I put raptor we kind of did something in that vein."
Following the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home last December, Hollywood certainly seems keen on delivering these fan-pleasing meetings on the big screen. However, making them a reality is often easier said than done due to legal issues, and past experience shows that mixing franchises - such as Alien vs. Predator - can have very poor results.
Ultimately, it's Universal calling the shots, so we'll see what happens down the line!
