Apes writers to handle JP4

Jurassic Park 4 Lands Rise of the Planet of the Apes Writers...

After more than a decade of bizarre rumors and wild speculation concerning what Jurassic Park 4 could be about (dinosaurs with weapons were mentioned, at one point), a fourth installment in the lucrative sci-fi franchise does seem increasingly likely to happen now. While Steven Spielberg has made it clear that he won’t direct the new dino movie, he is already committed as a producer (along with Kathleen Kennedy).

Spielberg has spent some two years working with screenwriter Mark Protosevich (The Cell, Thor) on the story for a fourth Jurassic Park film. However, when last we heard from Kennedy, the actual scripting process had yet to get underway.

Thanks to xenomorph for the submission.

Give me more dinosaurs, oh and I want them in 3D too.

With Spielberg behind it I always rest easy that at the very least it'll be entertaining. I'd rather he direct but he's got that Robocalypse film in the works which I'm also looking forward to

So that's how they write these movies. How do they get the apes to keep typing instead of flinging poo?

I personally have no need or desire for another JP film. To me the main greatness of the first was the spectacle of finally seeing dinosaurs on screen as good as they look in your head. The second I liked because it upped the ante with more death and actually seeing a T-Rex rampage in the city streets. The third was a disappointment because it felt like a rehash of the first.

Nowadays you can see photo-realistic dinos in science & scripted TV shows and other movies. The novelty has wore off for me. Unless they came up with a really great story idea first and spectacle second I'll pass.

Agreed, the story has to be there.

Seeing dinosaur's on the screen lost it's novelty after the first movie.

It was the reveal of the T-Rex that had everyone talking...remember before the internet spoiled all surprises.

I think that the new movie should be about the technology that created the dinos being reverse engineered by another company but they screw up and create even more dangerous mutated dinos. Hey, you could call it JP4:Dinopocalypse

It's going to be a crossover with the next Transformers movie... Rise of the JP4 Dinobots!

Take your stinking claws off me you damn dirty sauropod.

 I know I'm in the minority, but I liked JP3 better than 1 and 2.  2 being a major disapointment and a low point in Spielberg's career.  I can't really see where they can take the concept.  But, maybe I'll be surprised.

A long shot perhaps... but bare with me.  The writers of return of the planet of the apes, the story of a powerful animal given higher intellect.  Now they work on JP4.  They have raptors with supposedly higher intellect...  maybe it'll have some sort of attempted intergration story?

theduck1980 6/22/2012 7:46:49 PM

perhaps the raptors being a pack animal(like wolves) can be raised from birth to be relativlely tame?
