Steven Spielberg looking to reboot Jurassic Park

Jun. 16, 2011by: Mike Sampson

A fourth JURASSIC PARK film has been in the works since early 2002, just after the third film hit theaters. Over the years, a number of talented people, including William Monahan, John Sayles and Joe Johnston, have been working on the film in some capacity but the project never got off the ground. But now Steven Spielberg has a new idea: reboot.

Spielberg has been quietly meeting with writer Mark Protosevich (I AM LEGEND) to flesh out ideas on how to properly reboot the franchise. It's unclear if what Spielberg is envisioning would be a remake of the original, although that seems unlikely. More likely is a "concept reboot" - a sequel that would take the franchise in a new direction (think FAST FIVE or the proposed GHOSTBUSTERS film). Spielberg and Protosevich are currently working on ideas for a new story though Universal cautions that no writer has been hired to work on a script and the meetings are "exploratory."

Exploratory or not, they mark the first significant movement on the JURASSIC PARK front since author Michael Crichton died in 2008 (at the time, producer Kathleen Kennedy said she felt Crichton's death marked the end of the franchise).

Previous incarnations of the script were significant departures from the original films, especially the 2005 draft by Sayles, which reimagined the dinosaurs as hyper-intelligent creatures engineered and trained to carry guns and go on commando missions (seriously). Back in 2010, Johnston (who directed the third film) confirmed that draft was out and they were looking to launch a new trilogy. But is that still part of what Spielberg is looking to do here?

Frankly, I think a straight reboot of the franchise would be a mistake but if Spielberg and Protosevich can crack the code and find a new and fresh way to attack the material while keeping the legacy of the original films alive, then I'd be all for it.

Jurassic Park was and still is my favorite movie of all times! Just stick to the book for the reboot and you'll have a killer reboot! Same with The Lost World, just stick closer to the books!

is that headline correct or the biggest oxymoron ever? Even at the age of 15 when the original movie came out i was still amazed at the film & then you had the mediocre sequels. This a very beloved & groundbreaking movie to so many people, enough with the reboots even if Spielberg is involved.

I'm all for it, as long as they can avoid a "high concept" reboot. People like dinosaurs, so just give them dinosaurs. Shit, the story could be as simple as a National Geographic expedition to the island goes (gasp!) horribly wrong. Bring a little science into it; make the dinosaurs seem like living creatures and not movie monsters; write characters who the audience can get behind; have dinosaurs fuck shit up. I'd seriously be behind this if it was given an R rating, but that'd never happen.

"...clever girl..."

My reactions to recent developments about a new Jurassic Park film have been lukewarm, at best, but if they're going to make another, do the prequel story with Muldoon as the lead character. Shame that the great Bob Peck is no longer with us, but give Tim Roth or Michael Fassbender a big-ass shotgun and some khaki shorts and I'll show up to the theatre on opening day.

I like this idea as long as they bring on board a fresh cast...If they try and find ANOTHER way to con Dr. Grant back to the island...I'm done the series!

Be careful, Speilberg

Jurassic Park is one of my all time favourite films, and as much as I love Speilberg, he clearly hasn't been firing on all cylinders for several years.
Either make it amazing, or don't do it at all. Maybe someone like JJ Abrams could do an okay job, providing he got some better writers.

Please not again...

A part of me that loved the first movie as a kid desperately wants to see a fourth installment, but honestly all signs point towards this being a potential disaster, even if they come up with a better idea than raptors sporting assault rifles. The abomination that was the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has soured the prospect of revisiting my favorite old franchises, even Spielberg's work.

I agree with you. If it has to be done (and I'm not not convinced that it would be a great idea), make a faithful adaption to Crichton's vastly superior Lost World novel and go from there.

I'm a huge fan of Jurassic Park, it started my obsession with movies. But a reboot really doesn't sound interesting to me. I fear it'll be like the AVP movies to the Alien franchise. I'd be willing for one more good sequel to end the franchise, but until we have more information I can't say I'm a fan of rebooting JP.

funny how every movie these days envisioned as the launch of a new trilogy. It's the only way producers can say they just want to make sequels if the first one is a hit. Wesley Snipes once claimed Blade was always meant to be a trilogy, well next time don't make three totally different movies and I might believe you.

But on topic, Jurassic park is cool so I don't mind how if they [link] the series, just gimme some dino action already! ">

2nd book

Just make a proper adaptation of the second book (& NO the second movie is nothing like the book except for a few scenes)! Anyone remember the motorbike chase? THAT would be cool...

I'm down if they do a more faithful version of the first book. I loved Jurassic Park but hated it's sequels so the smart decision in my mind is to just reboot using the two Crichton books as a guide. I'd even be happier if they would just finally release the original on blu ray.

Previous incarnations of the script were significant departures from the original films, especially the 2005 draft by Sayles, which reimagined the dinosaurs as hyper-intelligent creatures engineered and trained to carry guns and go on commando missions. Are you serious? This is RIDICULOUS! Who the heck do they have submitting scripts to them? seven year olds? Thank God that script never saw the light of day!

I would like to see a prequel to the first one or a sequel where ingen or some other company decides to open the park to the public. Jurassic Park is my favorite movie of all time so I would be pretty excited to see another one that is taken more seriously than the 3rd one.

Audiences have not moved on. It's pretty damn obvious that audiences will see pretty much anything. Good, bad, shitty, great. Doesn't matter. Anything with Spielberg's name on it, has the the potential to make a billion dollars. Reboot, remake, sequel, prequel, doesn't matter.

@JohnLocke - eh, I don't know. The only Fast and the Furious film that was really about racing was the first to some extent and moreso Tokyo Drift. The second was about Brian being blackmailed into detaining a drug dealer and Fast and Furious was about Dom getting revenge for the death of his girlfriend.

I say have doctor grant fall into a coma and wake up to a world where humans are endangered as the dinosaurs now greatly outnumber humanity and continue to grow in size and numbers as the traces of humanity's control over nature begins to slip away.

I don't care what it is, just as long as SS is behind it. And I see dinos. I hope he doesn't use CGI. And I hope they do practial effects like stan did. I know stan is gone, so it will be hard. but maybe they could use neville page the guy who's been creating most monsters in clover, super 8, tron legacy, the guy is awesome at what he does. :)

I'll be honest. None of these movies have aged well. They were impressive AT THE TIME. None had particularly compelling stories or relatable characters. The first one had real Spielberg magic and still-effective CGI. The first two had the finest animatronics Stan Winston ever gave the world. His T-Rex still looks real. But Stan's dead. So is Michael Crichton. And audiences have moved on.

It'd be hard to keep finding excuses for people to go back to the island of dinosaurs and keep getting in trouble... unless the Jurassic Park Resort and Hotel were finally open for business!!

Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies of all-time and turned me into the movie geek that I am today.. nothing can ever top the original in any shape or form, and no reboot would be able to capture the magic.. BUT..

... a reboot could tell a different story, and a very engaging one. People seem to forget how different the novel is then the movie, and I actually preferred the novel's story over the movies. It had more interesting characters and some switched up personas. We all know

It had more interesting characters and some switched up personas. We all know that Hollywood is a business, and Jurassic Park is a major franchise that has the name to bring in millions and millions of dollars. Hell, it's a centerpiece to Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. JP movies will never go away, as long as that franchise stays popular... so I'd rather we got a reboot route that follows closely to the source material and is a different version of the BEST story, rather then a piss-poor 4th movie that sends "people to JP to recover dinos and chaos ensues". I'd rather none of this happen.. but because it's Hollywood and ONE of these is going to happen, I'd much rather see the original book put on screen then a half-assed and sloppily written sequel.

I would love to visit the park as even a prequel ala Rise of the Apes... It would be more interesting of a concept on the first dinosaur cloned and add some suspense/horror elements to it once they get the ball rolling and start mass producing the dinosaurs...

Look, Spielberg would not reboot something as successful as JP. It would lessen his work. It would be saying to the world HEY I fucked up so I'll do it again.... Better. I think not. Spielberg doesn't fuck movies up. I can't think of any of his films that would warrant a reboot. So rest assured it'll be a sequel.

Look at my avatar. Of course I'm opposed to this. You cannot keep shoehorning awe and majesty into these movies. It can only be done once properly, and twice for a much lesser effect. The 3rd movie was a mistake. I hope Spielberg decides to stop this charade, and let the JP franchise be.

Not true, just look at Hook and to a lesser extent The Lost World and War of the Worlds. Even Spielberg has his low points. A good script is the key.

Let's use words properly. You can either reboot a franchise or remake a film. You can't "reboot the original".

Rebooting wouldnt be a bad idea, if they just go with different characters that have nothing to do with the previous movies. That way it could still be some kind of sequel on some level.

But remaking the "origin story" would be a wrong idea, and I dont think that's what Spielberg has in mind.

Use an apple product it weeds all the bullshit out and streams everything without a headache or pop-up,keep in mind our administration changed Internet rules and even with pop up blocker on you still get hit as if you were going to domaines page link and not a different part of the page you are already on. It's bullshit I know but its a common loop hole that is abused by ad companies

Why do you guys always ASSUME that we're doing this ON PURPOSE?? Guys, it's a TECHNICAL BUG...email the team and let us know and stop posting your complaints under articles...that doesn't help anyone.

Click CONTACT US at the top of the site, and SEND US YOUR COMPLAINTS and be specific.

We deal with issues like this all the time, but we FIX THEM and move on, but if you don't let us know about them (and just ASSUME that we're "out to get you" or something), it's harder to fix.

Spielberg is rebooting Jurassic Park? Betcha it includes aliens. (Spielberg, as talented as he is has become a one-trick pony in recent years.)

Might work, but a firm maybe....I always thought it would be cool to make a strict, faithful adaption of the book as an HBO miniseries.

Leave it alone for at least another 10 years before even thinking about rebooting! The original Jurassic Park is a classic and such and iconic movie, it's way to early for a reboot!

From the several articles I've checked out across the web, I think the 'reboot' thing is just speculation to up traffic. Besides, "Jurassic Park" is timeless - it's easily one of those blockbusters - along with a great handful of Spielberg's others - that you can't say "reboot" to just because the property has "aged" and might be ripe for reintroduction. I'm so weary of studios making safe, thereby bland, decisions for the sake of monetary gain. If they were willing to traverse tough times

I'm so weary of studios making safe, thereby bland, decisions for the sake of monetary gain. If they were willing to traverse tough times keeping bold art at the forefront they may just garner a higher credibility and subsequently have both art *and* money taken care of. I'm throwing Fox under this comment based on the Mangold/Wolvie announcement, as well.

Jurassic Park is my favorite movie of all time and while I consider the sequels inferior to the original, the idea of another movie gets me excited. I don't really want to see a remake or reboot though.

Oh yes those martial arts skills will come in handy against the raptors, even more handy than gymnastics skills!

Jurassic Park is my favorite Spielberg

Therefore, I can dig it no matter how weird it sounds in pre-production.

It's a sequel, not a remake. He's saying "reboot" as it's been a decade since the last movie.

I know the budget requirements are too high for this

But I would have liked to have seen the bloodier, more adult version of the story as it was originally told in the book. Since I was in college and had read the book before the movie came out - I didn't grow up on the "wonder" of the movie the way some of the younger members of this site did. Spielberg's de-clawing of the movie adaptation was the biggest let-down of the movie for me. The book is not family fun - and if there is going to be a "redo" or whatever you want to call it - that's

I've read the book as well and it does differ a lot, but you have to think from a studio's standpoint. Doing an R version would not have brought in 900 million dollars. I would love to see a hard R one as well, but it's never gonna happen. I do think the original was a masterpiece though even though it strayed from the book....

I can read. I'm saying that I agree on wanting an R film, but I thought that Spielberg took it and made it his own, which is an incredible film that still stand the test of time.

Great. I'm definitely not interested in a remake, if that's what he means by reboot and I'm honestly not up for a sequel either if he's thinking of rebooting it by continuing it in a fresh way (while maintaining continuity). I really don't know what could be done to extend the franchise. The original was phenomenal and most would agree is the best of the trilogy, but the sequels pretty much fleshed out the areas a continuation of the story could go. If they can figure out a way to break new

If they can figure out a way to break new ground and bring back as many of the original cast members as possible, maybe I'll give it a chance.

what? he's not going to 'reboot' the series (the most misused word in the current film dictionary), i promise you. maybe he'll make a sequel, yes.
