Although Jurassic Park III was, well, rubbish, making another of the popular dinosaur movies seems a bit of a no-brainer, but despite JP4 having been in the works for aeons, it’s now 11 years since we’ve had a Jurassic Park movie.
However things are slowly moving forwards, with it being revealed last year that Steven Spielberg was working with Thor screenwriter Mark Protosevich to go over ideas for another installment in the franchise.
While Protosevich came up with various plans, now Deadline reports that Universal Pictures has hired Rise of the Planet of the Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver to pen the actual screenplay for Jurassic Park 4. Raffa and Silver worked on the script for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, suggesting they may be a goood match for the dinosaur movies.
Spielberg isn’t planning to direct the JP4, but at the moment it isn’t known who might helm. And if you’re hankering for some Jurassic Park in cinemas, the first movie is being re-released in 3D on July 19th, 2013.
