Last we heard from Jurassic Park 4, Rise of the Planet of the Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Kathleen Kennedy had been hired to draft a script. Not a bad choice — I mean the leap from “killer CGI apes” to “killer CGI lizards” really isn’t that wide.
So, how’s production been going since then? Pretty well it seems, as producer Frank Marshall recently revealed that the plan is to have Jurassic Park 4 in theatres by the summer of 2014.
Jurassic Park 4 will have plenty of competition on it’s hands — there’s already a ton of stuff like Captain America 2, X-Men First Class 2, Guardians of the Galaxy and a new Hunger Games movie slated for summer of 2014, but come on, Jurassic Park will have dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are awesome. All those other movies oughta be afraid of Jurassic Park, not the other way around.
Marshall also confirmed that the movie is definitely going to be a sequel, as opposed to a reboot/remake. I don’t know about you, but I’m just going to go ahead and take that as confirmation that the movie will star Jeff Goldblum. Yeah, Jurassic Park 4: Chaos Theory — find a way Spielberg.
