Jurassic Park 4 director Colin Trevorrow has promised to honour the original film.

The Safety Not Guaranteed filmmaker has the full support of Steven Spielberg who directed the first two dinosaur movies, and is working as a producer on the new sequel.

Colin told Total Film: "We don't want to create a new scoop here, but we really want to honour what came before us. We are very aware of how much a certain generation especially cares about this movie and we talk about it all the time in conversations.

"It's not about us, it's not about our careers, it's 'how do we make something that can stand [against the first Jurassic Park]?'."

The director also revealed Spielberg is closely involved in the project.

He said: "It's incredible to have Steven, who's done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and this understanding of the language of story - in a way that for us, is very refreshing. It's not like getting notes from a studio executive."

Jurassic Park 4 was originally due to be released in June 2014, but has been pushed back to 2015.
