The fate of Jurassic Park as a franchise was in the balance when writer Michael Crichton passed away. A sequel was written up for a fourth film and that’s all we had heard…until now. Check out the latest news below.
Back in 2008, it didn’t look like the franchise would live on Kennedy explains “You know, when [Michael] Crichton passed away, I sorta felt maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s a sign that we don’t mess with it.”
Rise of the Planet of the Apes‘ Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are currently penning the script.
“Writing, writing, writing,” Kennedy said when asked about the project. “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 constantly saying, ‘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.”
