Jurassic Park 4 On HOLD

The Theme Park is Temporarily Closed

It seems fans of Jurassic Park will have to wait just a few years more. Universal Studios released the official word that the sequel (JP4) is now on hold. Read the press release below. 

“In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise.  We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise’s storied history”.

The original release date was June, 2014. So with the film being put on hold, Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) will now have time to tell a proper story. He won’t have to rush into production for a film that is heavy with special effects.

No way!  Say it ain't so!  I really thought it would happen this time!  Darn it all to heck!

Another 65 million year wait.

I'm okay waiting a bit longer if it does indeed mean a "proper" story.

This is no big deal to me. I personally have no need or desire for JP4.

The cool thing about the first was it was the first time dinosaurs were on screen looking real in a great story for everybody. I really liked JP2 because it upped the ante but didn't think much of the third. But now photorealistic dinosaurs are all over the place. You can see them any given week on Discovery or Science Channel. For me the realism is all the JP movies had going for them. Another movie has no appeal to me.

Yeah but the ones on the science channel ain't pack hunting human prey.

Dinosaurs still have that awe factor for me they had when I was  a kid.

I will plan to see it if/when it comes out, but I'm ok if it never happens.

If I can be patient for new Homestar Runner toons that will likely never come, I can do the same for JP.

 JP4 has been delayed.

But on the plus side, Dan Ackroyd just released word that Ghostbusters 3  has been fast-tracked!!!

 i can dig it!!! As long as the quality doesn't suffer, it's all good to me!!!

 Agree with Wiseguy about the awe factor of dinosaurs.  Don't care about another JP sequel.  Can't we get some cool CGI dinosaurs vs. humans action prior to 2016.  I'm not fussy...how about a cheap - Valley of the Gwangi or Beast FROM 20,000 Fathoms...reboot with no name actors that skips the theatres and goes straight to DVD.
