While doing press for the Blu-ray release of E.T.: The Extraterrestrial producer Kathleen Kennedy offered the following update to Collider on the status of the long talked about sequel. Read on for the skinny.
“Writing, writing, writing,” emphasizes Kennedy. “It’s really hard to keep these things going when there’s an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going. As filmmakers, we often sit there constantly saying, ‘Okay. We have to answer the question, ‘Why do another one?” If you can’t answer that question, you shouldn’t be doing it. It’s tough. We’re trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn’t going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We’ve got to start with a script and the story.”
Universal has set Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) to write the script for the fourth Jurassic Park film, which will be produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy. Spielberg won’t direct.
Look for more on this one (hopefully) soon!
