Saltburn’s Emerald Fennell Wants To Direct Jurassic Park

It’s possible that this wild answer from Emerald Fennell is due to the fact that she’s been spending her time promoting her latest film, “Saltburn,” a bizarre yet thoroughly enjoyable psychosexual drama where a young student named Oliver Quick (Barry Keoghan) develops an unending obsession with his privileged classmate Felix Catton (Jacob Elordi). When Felix invites Oliver to summer with him at the Catton family estate of Saltburn, Oliver accepts … and the summer that follows includes too many depraved acts to list here, including Oliver’s dalliance with a bathtub. (You’ll understand if you’ve seen the movie.)

Later in the interview, Fennell is asked which of her characters is most like her, and she says there’s a part of her in every single one. She does pinpoints one in particular, though: “Although these days, I really do feel like Oliver [in Saltburn]. His ambition and desire is a bottomless pit of want, and I can really relate to that.” Maybe her slightly unhinged “Jurassic Park” idea was borne from her recent feelings about Oliver Quick … although if she does want to make an erotic “Jurassic Park,” there’s probably a very specific audience out there for that somewhere.

“Saltburn” is in theaters now.
