JP4 clarification

08.23.2007
There's been a load of talk about the impending JURASSIC PARK IV movie, ranging from the moderately interesting (for example, the re-casting of Laura Dern) to the completely absurd (for example, that the movie will focus on a bunch of Dinosaurs that have been trained for battle by the government and are equipped with weapons), but for now we have what seems like something concrete:

Steven Spielberg’s personal reps at Amblin Entertainment (co-producers of the “Jurassic Park” franchise) have told SpielbergFilms.com that casting has not commenced on the film, as the story and screenplay are still in development. While there’s been talk over the years with series stars Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and most recently, Laura Dern, the property is still not ready to move forward toward production and no casting is taking place.

The film is in development but it would seem, not at the point the rumors would have you believe. I think it's probably for the best that we just assume the film will be directed by Steven Spielberg and will be about dinosaurs. Suddenly it sounds like it might be okay again. Stay tuned for new developments, probably in relation to the movie being about a T-Rex that has a penchant for original Gucci handbags, causing her to run riot at the Malaysian black market.

well...

i doubt spielberg will direct this. the only reason he might is if he was really disappointed with jp3, which many were. i personally had a good time with jp3 and felt it was no worse than the lost world, which wasn't nearly as good as jurassic park. if spielberg does it, it will be good. even if he doesn't direct it, everything he touches is gold (transformers, anyone?) and i don't think he will let this suck.

Delay

The only reason that makes sense for the long delay is that Spielberg wants to do it, which I would welcome. I love the franchise.

I agree with you...as long as you meant the Alien films after 3. Aliens is among the top 10 action flicks of all time. Just so we're clear.

Oh yeah, JP4...who cares?

why not

At this point, the series has lost pretty much all credibility so why not just make it about god damn cyborg dinos like the Turok games? I mean hell, it's not like the series has a reputation to uphold anymore.

I highly doubt it will be directed by Spielberg. I wouldnt be surprised if that jackass (aka Joe Johnston) turns it down either. I also wouldnt be surprised if this movie ended up being completely CG and none of the characters from any of the three previous films were written in.

huh?

Why assume that it'll be directed by Speilberg? Is that a definate? I thought he was letting that jackass that made a complete fuck-up of Part 3 do it.

This is the Jaws franchise all over again, lets put out a bunch of crappy sequals to make lots of money and exploit a ground breaking film. For more films that have been exploited because of there success see the Alien and Halloween sequals.

Best plot idea ever --

The T-Rex is loosed in Beverly Hills and eats Paris Hilton. It then gets indigestion and dies. Everybody wins.
