“Jurassic Park” sequel talk from “Captain America” director

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Joe Johnston was busy promoting his upcoming “Captain America” over the weekend in Los Angeles, though talk eventually drifted around to Johnston’s previous franchise, “Jurassic Park.”

For those who don’t recall, Johnston directed the third installment of the series after Steven Spielberg walked, and he was asked to comment on rumors that a fourth “Park” might be in the works.

“We are in discussions about ‘Jurassic Park 4,’” the director told press in L.A. (via ScreenRant). “The most important thing I can tell you is that it starts a new trilogy that will go off in a different direction — a completely different direction that is very exciting, and different from anything we’ve seen.

“It starts with the history of the first trilogy, but it spins it off in a completely different direction. That’s all I can tell you,” he concluded.

So there’s an idea floating out there … even though novelist Michael Crichton hasn’t penned any additional “Park” stories. As for the direction “Park” will head, one can only speculate. Still, this sounds like it’s very early in the planning stages, as no director or writers officially have been hired. But “Jurassic Park” isn’t dead (or extinct), and it may happen in the future.

Does that excite you? Do you want more? Or was three enough? Let us know below.

    Uhh, I’m thinking that might be because Michael Crichton IS DEAD.

    And he didn’t pen any before he passed.

    I think Seasider was pointing out the omission because the tense of that sentence implied an ignorance of that fact.

    But looking at your question, I will always see a new Jurassic Park movie regardless of how bad it look. I’m hoping it really does take things in a new direction because the first one was the only movie that felt fresh. The sequels, though attempting to bring something new to the table, didn’t have enough things working on their own terms to stand alone.
