Steven Spielberg Brainstorming 'Jurassic Park 4' with Writer Mark Protosevich (Exclusive) Will Universal reboot the lucrative but faded dinosaur franchise?

Steven Spielberg has dinosaurs back on the brain lately. In addition to the impending launch of the television series Terra Nova on Fox in the fall, Spielberg has been meeting with screenwriter Mark Protosevich to kick around ideas for how to re-boot the Jurassic Park franchise.

Several years ago, the Oscar-winning director worked with Protosevich on a potential remake of Chan-wook Park's Oldboy that was to star Will Smith. That film ran into rights problems and didn't come to fruition, but Spielberg, who directed the first two Jurassic Park films and was an executive producer on the third, has since met twice with Protosevich to fashion a story for a potential fourth film in the franchise.

Both Universal, which released the trilogy, and Spielberg's camp stress that no one has been engaged to write a script and that the discussions have been purely exploratory. But the idea is kind of a no-brainer.

The franchise, born of the late Michael Crichton's 1990 novel, has been in stuck in amber since 2001, when Joe Johnston directed Jurassic Park III from a script by Peter Buchman, Jim Taylor and Alexander Payne. That last entry signaled the series' fading fortunes, as it grossed just $369 million worldwide -- Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park grossed $915 million and $619 million, respectively.

Spielberg's original 1993 film adaptation, which came on the heels of James Cameron's groundbreaking Terminator 2: Judgment Day, greatly advanced CGI technology (courtesy of ILM) in its depiction of colossal dinosaurs re-animated in the modern day. With the recent rebirth of 3D and soaring improvements in digital design marshaled by everyone from Cameron to Pixar, Jurassic Park is ripe for evolution into a 21st century phenomenon.

And Universal could use the revived sci-fi tentpole.The Fast and the Furious franchise remains healthy, but The Mummy has lost momentum, the Bourne series lost star Matt Damon (a reboot with Jeremy Renner is in the works) and Van Helsing, The Wolfman and Land of the Lost never caught fire. Battleship remains a gamble for summer 2012 but could spark a new alien-related franchise.

Stampeding dinosaurs endangering humans, fighting each other and smashing things never gets old, and Cameron showed how far an ambitious filmmaker can push an integrated, immersive 3D world with Avatar. A new Spielberg-produced Jurassic Park that takes full advantage of those tools could be (pre)historic.

The CAA-repped Protosevich recently had a story credit on Marvel Studios' Thor, and he is working on an adaptation of the Ape Entertainment comic Freakshow that he would also direct. He co-wrote the screenplay for I Am Legend and wrote both The Cell and Poseidon.

The CAA-repped Spielberg is finishing up The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn for Paramount and War Horse for DreamWorks/Disney, both scheduled for holiday releases. He next plans to direct Lincoln for DreamWorks/Touchstone.

I think those movies are fine the way they are, no reboots needed. A 4th would be alright, but not to wipe the slate clean, but like the 3rd, to advance the story of the characters. And bring back Jeff Goldblum. Please.

I dunno, the third movie seemed so unnecessary, like it was just an excuse to revisit the world. The Lost World at least explored the behind-the-scenes workings and business of the Park, making it both distinct from yet a natural follow up to the first movie.


I'd much rather see a sequel/remake of the 'Operation Genesis' game.

Why would they need a reboot? The dinosaurs can't be more realistic like in the first three movies (except if they go with todays' "dinosaurs had feathers even on their tongues" theories - for gods' sake, I saw a book with a T-Rex with feathers in it last Christmas...) and making a reboot just to tell the same story again would be foolish.

As for a 4th movie, I'm awaiting it since I saw the third in theaters.

I loved that show... I need to go download it or something. (So I can ruin my fuzzy childhood memories some more.)

Also, I would love to see Jurassic Park get another movie.

I only thought the first jurassic movie was decent.

I thought the 2nd & 3rd were awful.

I would prefer a reboot instead of a 4th movie.

I want to see a different origin story,new actors,new CGI & better dialogue.

I liked the movies, and continuing the storyline would just drag it on too far.
What I think they mean by 're-boot', is the same idea of a dinosaur them park go wrong, yet they would do it completely different. different way things happen, different storyline, different characters, etc...

Interesting, I've been playing the Jurassic Park game for the Sega CD recently.

I think a new movie might work. I don't think they need a reboot, just a better story.

I'd like to see them put Grant and Malcolm back into the jungle, though I'm not sure what would make them go back.

The first part of Lost World was good on its own right except for Malcolm's annoying daughter which was a creation for the film, than never appeared in the novel. The third one had lots of potential with Sam Neil, but I think they failed at different points.

Either way, I think we a good story a Jurassic part 4 could revitalize the franchise without needing to reboot it.
