‘Jurassic Park III’ went through cinemas back in 2001 and there has been talk of another sequel occasionally but nothing concrete has come through. While it still doesn’t look like this project will eventuate in the short term future there has been some news indicating that things could be getting back on track.
It is being reported that writing duo Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are writing the script for ‘Jurassic Park IV’. The pair both worked on the surprisingly well crafted ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ and are attached to the sequel for that film in addition to a new Jurassic Park film.
This news has me somewhat optimistic. the idea of a fourth installment in the franchise hasn’t excited me previously but given the promise shown in ‘Rise’, there’s scope for this writing team do something really interesting with the new film.
Whether this announcement gets things back on track for Spielberg and his Dinosaurs we’ll have to wait and see but in the mean time Jurassic Park fans can look forward to the 3D re-release of the original film that is currently planned for a 2013 release.
