Jurassic Park 4 In The Works?

Would you want to see a fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise?

Well, you might get lucky, but don’t hold your breath. Reports swirled this morning that “purely exploratory” talks were underway to put together Jurassic Park 4, and that “Steven Spielberg has been brainstorming ideas” along with screenwriter Mark Protosevich. Paste Magazine says:

However, Universal Studios and Spielberg’s representatives “stress that no one has been engaged to write a script and that the discussions have been purely exploratory.”

The first film, which released in 1993, was adapted from Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel and greatly advanced CGI technology in achieving realistic-looking dinosaurs on the screen. With the rise of 3D in 21st century cinema, however, THR suggests that the reboot could achieve even more with updated technology.

In other news, if you would like to feel old, the original Jurassic Park (which I saw in a drive-in theater) was released back in 1993- eighteen years ago.
