Jurassic Park IV is alive!

First off, Happy New years everyone! It’s been a long time coming since our last update… many ages ago. Today, I brings news from Boxoffice.com about Jurassic Park IV from the big man, Joe Johnston! He reports to Amy Nicholson of Boxoffice that Jurassic Park IV is not only happening, but a second trilogy may be in the works. Will our favorite characters (most notably: Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm and Ellie Sattler) be involved with the new trilogy or will this bring a whole new crew to the silver screen? More to follow!

Amy Nicholson (AN): You said that there was no way to get people back on the island for a fourth time and have it make sense, but that 2001 was the last installment and we’re due.
Joe Johnston (JJ): Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen. It breaks away from the first three—it’s essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It’s going to be done in a completely different way. That’s pretty much all I can tell you.
AN: A second trilogy?
JJ: If you think of the first three as a trilogy, number four would be the beginning of a second trilogy.
AN: That’s big. So not to lock you in, but there’s a possibility there might be a total of six films?
JJ: Well, you never know. If they keep working—and if audiences keep going to them—there’s no reason why there wouldn’t be. We just want to make them justified in their own right. We don’t want to make sequel after sequel just because there’s a market for it. We want to tell different, interesting stories. You don’t want to just sell hamburger.
