new jurassic park


Everyone knows by now that there’s a Jurassic Park 4 coming our way, though details of the actual production are scant.  One question that has to be on people’s minds at this point is what area of the world the dinosaurs will be destroying this time around.  When other franchise sequels get to number 4, things can sometimes get a little weird and putting the dinosaurs on the moon isn’t much of a stretch when it comes to Hollywood.  But nope, it looks like they’ll be sticking to the traditional and taking the story right back to where it all began.

The menacing green lizards will once again walk the jungles of Isla Nubar in Jurassic Park 4, as director Colin Trevorrow has announced formally.  Or as formally as a tweet can get, that is.  If you want to see one of their proposed scouting locations, check out the header picture above.

Whether they’ll be trying to turn Isla Nubar into yet another amusement park or not remains to be seen.  Most likely they’ll be there for some other reason (or at least we hope).  Rest assured, if we here at Nerd Bastards come across any further news about it, we’ll send it your way.  Until then, move along… nothing to see here.


Thanks to GeekTyrant for the heads-up.

After all these long years a fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series is being seriously pushed along.  Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy are acting as producers for the new flick and in a recent interview with Comingsoon, Kennedy had a few things to say about its progress.  Though from what she had to say, they haven’t got too much done so far.

Writing, writing, writing. It’s really hard to keep these things going when there’s an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going. As filmmakers, we often sit there going, ‘Okay. We have to answer the question, ‘Why do another one?” If you can’t answer that question, you shouldn’t be doing it. It’s tough. We’re trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn’t going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We’ve got to start with a script and the story.

She also added that the fourth in the franchise is really the start of a completely new trilogy run, so we should expect Jurassic Park 5 and 6 to be following close behind the fourth.  With the huge money-makers these films have been in the past, I don’t see anything stopping the studios from making them.

Rich Jaffa and Amanda Silver of Rise of the Planet of the Apes fame are set to write the script, so it’s up to them now.  With such a positive outlook from the studio, which seems eager to get the ball rolling on this thing, we’ll likely see Jurassic Park 4 before too long.
