Jurassic Park 4 news

08.13.2007
Unfortunately I couldn't fit the actual story in the headline because it is a corker. Apparently there's a chance that the dinosaurs in JURASSIC PARK 4 may be - and I swear this is the rumor - kitted out with weapons by the US government. I'll give you a moment to return your face from 'what the f*ck?' to normal.

Back? Okay, so yes, that's the rumor. Is there a chance this will be good? Well I enjoyed DINO-RIDERS as much as the next guy so I'll give the thing a shot, even if the rumor does turn out to be true. Surprisingly, there actually is some 'good news' in this story; there was originally word that one of the ideas for this movie might revolve around a group of soldiers that were genetically crossed humans and dinosaurs. And dinosaurs with guns is better than that, right? Plus, William Monahan is co-writing the script and he's probably one of the best writers in Hollywood right now. In other news, Laura Dern is alleged to have confirmed her involvement and the sequel to CONGO will feature killer apes schooled in the art of the nunchuck.
Extra Tidbit: The guy who proposed the idea of the human/dinosaur mutants was none other than John Sayles (the movie's other co-writer).

BETTER IDEA

HEY... lets get Hollywood to remake the Valley of Gwangi. You all know thats a great idea. Dinosaurs and Cowboys... it hasnt been done in years. If a movie producer is reading this and thinks thats a good idea... I want in.

Why God, WHY?

I cant take it. Jurassic Park is my favorite movie...of all time! The Lost World... not as good but still had some Michael Crichton essense to it. JP3...same storyline as the second movie...and dont kid yourself, it was. Leave it alone. I dont get it. You know. JP is now almost 15 years old. If they would just leave it alone, i bet they could re release the origional or remake the origional (like the origional star wars movies did at 20th aniv) in another 5 or 10 years and it would rake

But no, Hollywood is impatient. They have that history. Why make a good script? Lets just special effect the hell out of this bastard and people will like it. Holy hell, I majored in special 3D effects in college and I don't even like to see overkill. Ok, thats my rant.

To sum up... Jurassic Park good. Hollywood bad. Rerelease in 5 years. Make money then.

I don't really see why people are taking this news seriously at all. Jurassic Park been a joke ever since the first one, so why not just go ahead and make the fourth one the greatest joke of all time?

yer, this idea has been talked about for about 2-3 years. a majority bagged out this idea as stupid. WHICH IT IS! what joke! it would completely ruin the entire franchise! Havent they learned anything from Jurassic Park 3! Get Spielberg back in the directors seat, and Michael Crichton to write a fourth book! that would be great! The book Jurassic Park is sooo good. If they make a JP4 with Dino's as some kind of Weapons from Mass Extinction, i will be formalizing a boycott!

old news

Bad idea indeed! This concept has been kicking around for years... its not new news. Anyways, I say get back to the roots of the 1st one! I love the whole surprise that the dinosaurs have on screen their size and weight - and power! We need a story set perhaps in a different location - say the desert where all dinos dont escape but something else large and menacing happens - perhaps dino dna mixing!

Sounds like something out of the latest turock video game. It could be cool... if Spielberg does it.

Not JP

If they wanna make a movies of dino machines then they shouldnt put the name jurassic park on it cause its nowhere near what a JP movie should be.

yes!

I'm really pulling for this guns and dinos idea. I've always wanted to see a live action Dino-Riders movie, and nothing will ever come closer to it than this. If they put the brain boxes into the story, this may well be one of the greatest movies ever made.

This is a good pair of writers but the idea sounds bad.

Here's another idea they might work on as well though... Proposed story ideas included the discovery of a deadly prehistoric disease that the revival of the dinosaurs inflicted and which threatens to wipe out the entire human race. According to IMDB. Sounds better but nothing to do with the franchise really.

Jurassic Park was the first thing I obsessed over as a kid, even before STAR WARS. I have so many memories from JP...DON'T RUIN IT WITH THIS SHIT, seriously.

I do like that bit about a sequel to Congo though, as long as THEY aren't given rocket launchers and machine guns.

lmao

The series starts off as a lesson of not playing god with some kids and an adult escaping dinosaurs on a distant island. Go forward a few years and it's sequel is about cross-breed dinohuman super soldiers. WHERE DOES IT END?!?!?!?!?!

Ummm... No.

Let this franchise rest in peace. I know their trying to do something different, but it's like JASON X different. In other words, fuck that.

This has to be a joke.

If they make that into a movie it can't be Jurassic Park 4... it'll just be some weirdass dinosaur movie.

old news

This rumor was addressed a long, long time ago, I believe on aint it cool news, and I think with direct quotations from darabont, or with direct reference to his version of the script incorporating those elements.

Either way, I think it sounds a bit kooky, although I'd see any big budget dino movie, especially a jurassic park sequel.

edit; re-reading that article, I may be confusing darabont with sayles, and it seems you reference the old news (although the new news seems to be more along

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO...

...dignity? Dinosaurs with fu*kin' guns? Hey, while they're in the midst of turning the Jurassic Park series into a completely ridiculous joke that isn't as funny, might as well throw in Aliens who come to earth and befriend the dinos, then predators come along and destroy Aliens, befriend dinosaurs, genetically modify them to turn into Dinobots that transform into Transformers! Right?

Cadillacs & Dinos

Based on the game would be more prudent. Why not Dinosaurs? (from the TV show), stand alone Dinobot film, Land of the Lost film, Kazar in the Savage Land film, etc Pick one or none...

Go for it

I say they should just go for the most ridiculous idea they can think of. Why not? Nobody takes this franchise seriously anymore so they might as well make something as goofy as Snakes on a Plane or something.

In the words of Ian Malcolm,

"This is the worse idea in the history of bad ideas."

Y'know. Aside from Greedo shooting first. And...Greedo and Han shooting at the same time...

I'll just stick to Indy 4.

Try again, shall we

Jurassic Park and The Lost World was epic. The third episode killed the series completely. I hope this film can make it up.

This news is literally 3 years old

[link]

And Dern's involvment was discussed in April of this year as probable but not confirmed. Am I just not reading this properly or is there actually new news? Because I would love some.
