Jurassic Park 4 Has Risen From The Grave..And So Has 5 & 6?

Back in 2008, immediately after the death of Jurassic Park author writer Michael Crichton, Universal and producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy announced that they had decided to abandon any hopes of producing a fourth film.

That was two years ago, it it seems that everyone involved has gotten over mourning the loss of Crichton and are now ready to go forward with "Jurassic Park 4", plus "5" and "6", for that matter.

"Jurassic Park 3" director Joe Johnston has now come forward and announced that Universal is ready to launch a brand new trilogy that will be a whole new bread of cat.

"There is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it's going to be unlike anything you've seen. It breaks away from the first three - it's essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It's going to be done in a completely different way.

"If you think of the first three as a trilogy, number four would be the beginning of a second trilogy. We just want to make them justified in their own right. We don't want to make sequel after sequel just because there's a market for it. We want to tell different, interesting stories."

The last time anyone heard about "Jurassic Park 4", was way back in August of 2007. At that time, Laura Dern had been reportedly cast to reprise her role as Ellie Sattler from the first film.

It seems unlikely now, that the studio wants to go in a different direction, that Dern will be involved.

Also flashing back to 2007, I want to revisit two of the rumored plots for the film, which as weird as they sound, could be in line with '(being).....done in a completely different way'.

The first revolved around the United States government fitting dinosaurs with mounted weapons to use against drug runners in South America.

......yeh, I know......WTF?!

The second revolved around a group of soldiers that were human-dinosaur hybrids.

......Yeh, I know........WTF?!

Hopefully Johnston, Marshall and Kennedy won't pursue any of those ideas, but it does make you wonder just how they are going to re-boot the "Jurassic Park" franchise?

I don't think anyone wants to see soldiers riding dinos or mutated dino super-soldiers.

I would hope that they would produce something more in line with the Charles H. Schneer and Ray Harryhausen classic, "The Valley of Gwangi".

That may be too much to wish for. Would be cool though.

  1. I enjoy Jurassic park and the Lost World. Jurassic park 3 was to family-ish and they made the Tyrannosaurus look weak when everyone knows its would have owned Spinosaurus.

    I would not mind seeing a much Darker Jurassic park, No Children and more like a Chaos Effect with the T-Rex back as main predator.

    Jurassic park is 1 franchise that has potential to be a amazing film, Not oscar worthy but bring the Franchise out of the Trenches.

    Jurassic park 4 is going to do 1 of 2 things for Jurassic park. Redeem itself and this Franchise or permantly burry it at the bottom of lock-ness.

    I hope Joe johntson knows what he is doing.

  2. I have been a huge fan of Dinosaurs and Jurassic Park since i was little and the movies had come out. I do like the idea of moving on into the future of the time line so now the predators would be the Sabertooth Tiger and others, but I would also have to say that i was disappointed to see the T-Rex getting beaten. I was very crushed as the T-Rex was by far my most favorite dinosaur from the movie. (since he seemed the be the closest thing to Godzilla, who I'm a HUGE fan of :D) Good Luck on the movie and please space the JP 4, 5, and 6 lol - kmkirchhefer@yahoo.com

  3. You should Checkout and post the New Joe Johnston interview about Jurassic park 4.

    He confirms that Jurassic park 4 will not have dino's with Guns, and its a different idea. Also confirms it will have an entire new cast and will not be on the island.

    Steven Spielberg is also involved with the project, and will happen after Captain America.

    It's on bloody-discusting and also on imdb.com
    I love jurassic park, So any news about Jurassic park, Godzilla, or any good monster, shark movies are worth a post.

  4. After the 1st Jurassic Park movie, I already had the idea for a second one before I ever heard there would be one. When Dennis steals those embryos and has the accident and is killed by the Dilophosaurus, letting that cryo canister getting washed away, I figured it got washed out to the ocean. Maybe that ship at the dock somehow found it and picked it up or some how the embryos were viable a lot longer than thought just like the rovers we have on Mars right now. In any event they still got in the hands of some scientists that discovered them and developed them so that dinaosaurs broke out and began branching out through out Central America and into the U.S. as well.
    Or after Jurassic Park III, when the Pteranosaurs flew away from the island, in 4 they would find new nesting grounds in Mexico and the sourthwestern U.S. Some of the dinosaurs on the island would have found a way to leave the island by floating on logs or swimming, because some swimming creature like a Pleisosaur attacked that boat in number 3. And others could probably swim to the coast of Costa Rica.

  5. In the first Jurasic Park there seemed to be allot of hidden messages and shots that were meant to mean something. Number 1- when nedy is killed and they focus on the canister getting covered in mud. Number 2- when they are in the computer room at the end and lexy has just managed to lock the doors you hear gun shots fired and then the camera zooms in on a a gun with bullets, why take this shot??

    Number 3- one of the raptors is looked in the deep freeze, and once again they take a long lingering look at that......

    They have laid possible connections through all of the films so they could carry the films on and make more money.

    I am a great fan of nostalgia and would love to see the first film explained with a re-visit but sadly I dont think it will happen after the farce that was Jurasic park 3

  6. They should have a story about Dodgson getting Nedry's stolen embryos and re building Jurassic Park in a major city like Los Angeles or Orlando.
