Lots of dinosaur excitement happening lately, with Jurassic Park 3D‘s release this week and the recent announcement that there will be a Jurassic Park 4. Talk about resurrection, eh?
Jack Horner is the palaeontologist and dinosaur consultant who worked with Steven Spielberg on the original Jurassic Park and is also involved in the upcoming film, working alongside the new director, Colin Trevarrow (Spielberg’s sticking around as the executive producer). In talking with USA Today, he had a few nuggets for all the dinosaur-lovers out there who have waited with baited breath for the past 20 years. Or newbies. Whatever.
He says that there will be “a new, previously extinct” creature in the film and that it’ll scare the pants off you. (Whether that’s a good thing depends on the context, I suppose.)
“I can’t actually tell you who that will be. But you’ll want to keep the lights on after you see this movie.”
Jurassic Park 4 is expected to be released in June 2014 and filming should be starting this summer. The screenplay’s already been written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
