New Jurassic Park trilogy
Some pretty big news came today for all things Jurassic Park with the unofficial announcement of not only a fourth film, but a FIFTH and SIXTH! Read on for the skinny from Boxoffice.com...
The internet is freaking out that there might be a Jurassic Park IV.
Wow, when did that happen?
November—you mentioned to Ain't it Cool News that there might be a good script.
Did I tell him? Was it me?
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.
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.
A second trilogy?
If you think of the first three as a trilogy, number four would be the beginning of a second trilogy.
That's big. So not to lock you in, but there's a possibility there might be a total of six films?
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.
