Jurassic Park 4 dead?

JurassicPark.jpgIt would seem that the plans for a fourth Jurassic Park film are over, and frankly we should be thankful for that, after all what are they going to do this time? How about have a theme park built with man made creatures who turn against their makers? Oh, that's been the same story since Westworld.

The producers themselves broke the good news and saved us from another franchise which should have been over already.

Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy were talking at the press junket for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button when they revealed that plans for Jurassic Park IV had fallen through.

According to Coming Soon they said that the passing of Michael Crichton was perhaps a sign:

"No... I don't know. You know, when Crichton passed away, I sorta felt maybe that's it. Maybe that's a sign that we don't mess with it."

A fourth film has been in development in some ways for nigh on four years, and I doubt we'll see it happen now unless they come up with something special and innovative, not just the same idea again - you mean there was another island?!



Ha, I suppose in some way this is a good idea. Shame really as I've always wanted a fourth film. I was talking to a guy who is a producer for the studio and I remember him saying that they don't know what to do with the series as so much time has passed now since the third film (wasn't that way too short!) and since that film didn't do too well it'll be difficult to get bums on the seats (aka, money at the box office)

Happy tidings, where were they goingto put the latest park? In the middle of London perhaps?

We've already had a dragon in "Reign of Fire" snoozing deep beneath the underground, so why not have a bunch of godzilla's roaming London, popping into Harrods for a homo sapien sandwich?

At last someone has realised that they were flogging a dead horse. Steve Guttenburg please take note.;-)

Ha! Police Academy is a bunch of dinosaurs already!

I never got over the idea of dinosaurs running around with guns. I can't remember when that came up for Jurassic Park 4, but it made me laugh.

As you say Richard, Police Academy 22(or whatever number it is) would pretty much be the same I guess.
