Just weeks ago star Sam Neill was pretty down on the idea of a fourth Jurassic Park film stating that he thinks that they’ve “told the story”. Well, apparently Steven Spielberg has other plans!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, in addition to the impending launch of the television series “Terra Nova” on Fox in the fall, Spielberg has been meeting with screenwriter Mark Protosevich to kick around ideas for how to re-boot the Jurassic Park franchise.
Several years ago, the Oscar-winning director worked with Protosevich on a potential remake of Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy that was to star Will Smith. That film ran into rights problems and didn’t come to fruition, but Spielberg, who directed the first two Jurassic Park films and was an executive producer on the third, has since met twice with Protosevich to fashion a story for a potential fourth film in the franchise.
Both Universal, which released the trilogy, and Spielberg’s camp stress that no one has been engaged to write a script and that the discussions have been purely exploratory. But the idea is kind of a no-brainer.
Stay tuned and keep the faith.
