Yup! That’s right. Universal Studios and Steven Spielberg are coming back for a fourth installation of the pre-historic thriller, which kicked off nearly 2 decades ago in ’93.
Spielberg, who directed the first two Jurassic Park films and served as an executive producer on the third, must be feeling nostalgic lately – he recently told journalists that he still thinks of making another Jaws movie, and now he’s returning to explore another franchise from his past. While it remains doubtful that Spielberg will ever be involved with another shark flick (or that a fifth Jaws film will ever get off the ground), at least Jurassic Park 4 seems like a project with a decent shot at coming to fruition.The director and studio stress that these are very early brainstorming meetings between Spielberg and [screenwriter Mark] Protosevich. The duo has a previous relationship, with Protosevich having worked with Spielberg on his planned westernization of Park Chan-Wook’s Oldboy. A series of rights issues eventually killed that project once and for all, but apparently the two enjoyed working together and have teamed up for this project. (source)
