Can they develop a good reason for a fourth?
Rise of the Planet of the Apes scribes Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have signed on to write Jurassic Park 4. While Spielberg has stated that he will not return to direct, his production partner Kathleen Kennedy will remain involved in the project. Kennedy has said that the script is the most important element of a sequel.
Last year she said, “A great script is what it’s gonna take to get a fourth Jurassic Park. We have a very high bar for ourselves because we’re just like the audience, we don’t wanna make the movie if there’s not a reason to make the movie.” She added that Jurassic Park was never meant to be a franchise, so with the announcement of a fourth they have to find a good reason behind it.There will be plenty of pressure on Jaffa and Silver to produce the goods for the fourth instalment. However, considering their work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we’re not particularly worried. It will be some time before we see the results of their labour. However, in the mean time the original Jurassic Park will be released in 3D. This 3D release is scheduled for July 2013.
