    Certainly is good news - minus him saying the Sayles/Monahan script may be back. I don't think it will though.

    Roll on the new trilogy!

    "Joe: Well, you know, Universal and Steven will want to keep making these movies as long as they're successful, and who knows? We may see the Monahan/Sayles version come back."

    NO! Bad Joe! (wraps on nose with rolled up newspaper) We do not tell jokes like that.

    A new series sounds awesome! But, a completely different direction doesn't thrill me.

    If they break away from the park idea, then it's not Jurassic "Park" is it now?
    And if they don't have like Grant or Malcom in it then it's already worse.
    Another thing is if they make it too unbelievable it'll get ridiculous.

    Plus they gotta keep some of the music that makes it JP. Even if it's a new soundtrack, even the new music in TLW and JPIII sounded like Jurassic Park.

    And if they make it like R with a bunch of F bombs and stuff then it kinda ruins JP. If it had had too much blood and gore and a lot of cussing then I would never have seen it as a kid, and probably wouldn't love it so much today. I mean, dinosaurs eaten people, that's fine. But I like the violent, but not adults only type violence if I can explain that right.

    Idea makes me leap for joy but what they how badly they could screw it up scares me. If they "completely" change it then it's not the series or characters we all fell in love with anymore is it?

    Too bad the JP movies didn't play up the BioSyn Corp as an antagonist like it was in the novels. That might have opened some other plot ideas for the writers. Oh well. Everyone knows if you make a JP movie, they will come. I know I will.

    My friends, Did you see the word "rumor" in the news about JP Blue-ray????

    Rumors....

    in 9 years, all we heard just rumors about JP. Nothing official. Just rumors!!!!
    I wanted to understand why Joe Johnston speaks about a new trilogy JP and Universal did not say anything about it!!!!
    Every day the presidents of Marvel, Warner and other studios talk about their franchises. Why the Unversal Pictures stay is silent about your projects???? If the Universal say something about JP, all the fans would be excited and interest for the film could be increased. This is Marketing, Ok????


    P.S.: Try to understand my English and my outrage at Universal and its lack of news about JURASSIC PARK.

    Fuck, we deserve respect!!!!





    Jurassic Park IV.... Other rumors???? Ok....

    A long time ago we used to talk about possible plots, and a storyline for the fourth movie. I had added a photo I had drawn up for the logo. It was like the Lost World logo but in the middle said "Extinction" Jurassic Park. Instead of tree's on the bottom, it had a city skyline. What can they do to make this film fresh. I will be writing a feature film screenplay in my film class and for fun may take a stab at the fourth movie. What is your guys, and we the fans are the most important, take on a story for the fourth film that could bring back the characters we love!


    At 10:42:21 AM on 1/25/2010, mrprongs said:
    Yes, a msitake to reboot.

    The problem is, Hollywood misunderstood why The Dark Knight was so popular. It's not a sudden love of dark superheroes, it's the love of a dark Batman. One of the main problems with Batman & Robin was Bruce Wayne was too happy. Having him/Batman dark and brooding with a sore throat brought the character back to his roots. Try making everything dark, and you don't have hits. It's why any plans to make a dark Superman will result in a movie worse than Quest For Peace. And come on, that movie sucked on every level possible.

    A dark Spiderman will fail because Spiderman isn't dark by nature. The only time he ever was dark, he was being controlled by an alien symbiont. And that translated into Dancer Peter in Spiderman 3.


    At 2:34:52 PM on 1/24/2010, jackdelamare said:
    I agree the Spiderman reboot is a bad idea. The first Spiderman film is great, the sequels weren't half bad. But it's way too early for a reboot...


    At 11:56:50 AM on 1/24/2010, raptor2000 said:
    Reading back through your comment again, mrprongs, I realize that I don't think you are arguing the authenticity of the Spiderman reboot, you just are saying that you think it is a bad idea. My bad on thinking you were saying the artcile wasn't true.

    Anyway, assuming you are saying it is a bad idea, then yes, I totally agree with you. I was so looking foward to the Spiderman story finally movie foward after a number of plots that have ran through the first 3 movies were finally concluded in Spiderman 3. I was also looking foward to seeing more villains show up. Now, though, we are just getting the same old story with the same old villains all over again, and of course they want to make it "dark" like The Dark Knight. Not every superhero has to be dark, especially lighthearted and comical ones like Spiderman and the Fantastic Four. (which they are also giving a darker reboot)


    At 11:13:06 AM on 1/24/2010, raptor2000 said:
    You need to do some research. Spiderman reboot is not a mistake. It has long since been confirmed, and they've even already found a director.


    At 10:24:42 AM on 1/24/2010, mrprongs said:
    Spiderman reboot is a mistake. They're philosophy is, we struck gold once, now we get to do it again. Yet there's no guarantee they'll do it again. In fact, all this backward business is irratating fans. Not a lot of comic readers enjoying the unmarriage of Peter and MJ. Newspaper comic strip tried it to match the comics, and then went back to normal because everybody complained. I fail to see why we're all going to love it for the movies. People don't want Spiderman going backward in his life.


    At 6:29:43 AM on 1/24/2010, jackdelamare said:
    Doni, there's a news article which says JP is being rebooted, but it's incorrect. They've just expanded on what Joe Johnston says but he never said anything about it being rebooted.


    At 5:26:36 PM on 1/23/2010, raptor2000 said:
    It isn't Spiderman 4 anymore, its Spiderman 1 all over again. They are, unfortunately, rebooting the franchise instead of making another sequel.


    At 5:05:27 PM on 1/23/2010, Doni JP said:
    Jack, about your last post in the site about Reboot....
    I don't understand. Why you said that????


    I'm so confused about things related to Jurassic Park IV because everything seems to be a mystery. A mystery that takes a lot to time be revealed to us.... JP fans.

    The Hobbit and Spiderman 4 happens in 2012... and day no day yes exists news about these movies.



    Universal Pictures needs to disclose something about the beginning of the development of JP4 or of the new trilogy JP.

    JP3 sucks

    "jackdelamare, nowhere did I ever bash JP3. In fact, I have very fiercely defended it in the past. The fact remains though that it is extremely inferior to JP and TLW and, had it been given the same time and effort the previous 2 movies had been given, it could have been so much better."


    I know you were defending it, I didn't mean you. I was just suggested we stop talking about JP3 as this comment section will probably turn into a "JP3 sucks" thread like most threads about JP4 do (especially on other forums).

    Anyway, the Monahan script was scrapped. It won't be used. They may use parts of it but the whole "dinosaurs with guns" concept was rejected almost instantly by Amblin heads. The artist who drew them told me himself. This was way back in 2004. So let's forget that.


    At 10:50:33 AM on 1/23/2010, mrprongs said:
    At least we have JP4 grumblings. Better than the nah, we're not doing one we previously had.

    marcospriateli (and your agent), you can into contact again with the Universal Pictures and ask about develop new Jurassic Park movies???? Please man!!!! I BEG YOU!!!!



    No make sense. Since 2002-2003 this Monahan script exist and no was used or mentioned in the Universal Pictures.

    And Joe Johnston news with "Fantastic history" about JP4 and New Trilogy. Involves the Monahan script, marcos?

    I don't think so.

    Exist a Great Fantastic History ( for more Three movies ) and now began write script. Ok????


    Listen Guys.... I don't know more nothing.
    I'm so confused about Jurassic Park.




    Jurassic Park IV.... Dream of Us.

    Yes, I came across Universal Pictures through my agent. My idea is far better than any other idea on the market and they didn't want it, yes. I'm really SURE the Monahan script is paid and it will be used one way or another.

    Hi marcospriateli.
    You really came into contact with the Universal Pictures about JP4????


    And....


    Guys, let's forget this history about "Dinosaurs with guns" and 'Dinosaurs in war". That history in the past was FAKE RUMOURS (Is not possible!!!!). Nobody involved with the JP4 talked anything about this.

    You gave me no information about yourself. How am I supposed to know you are professional? And if you won't post your material for us to read then I guess I'll just have to assume that it was rejected by those involved with the franchise for a reason. After all, if you won't let a few fanboys on the internet read it, how can you expect millions of people to go see it? But whatever, no skin off my back.

    jackdelamare, nowhere did I ever bash JP3. In fact, I have very fiercely defended it in the past. The fact remains though that it is extremely inferior to JP and TLW and, had it been given the same time and effort the previous 2 movies had been given, it could have been so much better.


    At 11:31:16 AM on 1/22/2010, marcospriateli said:
    Yes I'm a fan... But the way you're calling my script (fan-written script)is almost like saying I'm not a professional screenwriter... It's not what you're thinking. It took me one year to write it and I've managed to speak to everyone involved(through my agent). I've done a pretty good job and I rest my case; won't post it. Thank you.


    At 11:08:43 AM on 1/22/2010, jackdelamare said:
    Raptor2000, I agree exactly about Johnston and JP3. Now let's not turn this into a bash JP3 thread/comment section.

    We have no idea what the story for JP4 is so let's sit back and wait.


    At 10:43:08 AM on 1/22/2010, raptor2000 said:
    You should post your script under the fan fiction section. However, as I've said before, Universal isn't ever going to accept a fan-written script, especially not for a franchise as big as JP.


    Also, Joe Johnston did not fuck up JP3. He GOT fucked on JP3. He was given a limited budget and limited time - as in, so little time that the bad script wasn't even done when they had to start filming - and I think he did the best with what he had to work with. That is the only reason JP3 is actually a tolerable movie instead of "one big pile of shit". Were Johnston to be given proper time and resources and a good script and story to work with, I think he could make a damn fine JP movie, especially now that he has experience with the series and knows what works and what doesn't. Obviously I would prefer Spielberg but I seriously doubt that will ever happen.

    Guys, I'm a screenwriter and I've tried to send a screenplay to them years ago. I've managed to talk to Chrichton's agent and all. I got an agent in Nevada who liked it a lot but Universal didn't want it. Where can I share it here on your site, Dan?

    At 10:29:16 AM on 1/21/2010, mrprongs said:
    Somehow, I doubt they'll be a ton of new for a while. Maybe June 11ish. If this is real, you got to figure they're working on the rough draft. And if it is a new trilogy, they'll probably be working on the whole overarc. So, things will be quiet for a while.

    James Cameron's Twitter was fake though, Frank Marshall's is real.

    Hey if I had the power I would try to score an interview with Spielberg but it'd never happen. The best anyone can do is phone Amblin to see if there's any progress.

    Obviously it means that Frank Marshall isn't involved IF Joe's information is up to date. And I'm hoping it is.

    I was hoping to get to speak with Joe Johnston if he came to the UK for the premiere of The Wolfman - but I'm not sure if he will or not.


    At 8:39:59 AM on 1/16/2010, MK1 said:
    i agree with raptor and doni,

    if given decent time, and a good script (probably the most important), i think Johnston could pull it off.

    obviously, i would rather have spielberg, but that's a long shot.


    At 1:09:39 AM on 1/16/2010, Doni JP said:
    Thank you MK1.

    at least inform the beginning of the pre-production or if exist a screenplay.

    but MK1, I think the twitter is not very reliable source.

    But, this history of Frank Marshall says: "nope, not happening" and after Joe Johnston says: "Everything is happening to develop a new Trilogy Jurassic Park"... I'm the same time worried and Very Happy.


    MK1: "but i'm gonna wait until i hear something OFFICIAL from Universal, (like a release date and a director) before i crack open a bottle of wine to celebrate (and i will)"

    My friend MK1, i'm wait for this since 2001.

    Raptor2000: "He wouldn't be my first choice to direct another JP film but that's not to say I don't think he could do a good job if given time and good material (neither of which he got with JP3)."

    "not happening" - as in, no, Jurassic Park 4 will not be made.

    well i just found this, and it was posted on December 28th (not long ago), by Frank Marshall himself - on his twitter page.

    here's the link:

    ChrisCross Media asked about a fan-made trailer on youtube for Jurassic Park 4........

    and here was Frank Marshall's response.....quote:

    hey Doni,

    i'm with you, and would have loved to hear some dates from Johnston.

    however, if this news IS true (as i don't doubt there is an idea for the movie at least), i'm guessing it won't be released till 2012...at the earliest.

    i don't count Joe as a very reliable source, but this news is very very exciting, and i can't wait.

    but i'm gonna wait until i hear something OFFICIAL from Universal, (like a release date and a director) before i crack open a bottle of wine to celebrate (and i will)

    Taking the series in a new direction sounds intriguing, but please keep the guns and dinosaurs away from one another. LOL. :-P

    Great piece of news!!!

    What direction? Dinomen? Bomb carrying dinos? Or the next logical step in a world where there's an island of living dinos. Can our journey's in the park be over, but our adventures in cloned dino land be just beginning? Or will this just be Indy 4/Terminator 4? And does this tie into Spielberg's brilliant idea he talked about way back when?

    taking the story in a different direction entirely sounds interesting....

    i just hope they still maintain a jungle/exotic theme for part IV.

    i've always loved that about the JP films.

    I'm going to start coming here just to see Doni JP's hilarious crossover English.

    My new motto:

    "Jurassic Park IV.... I believe. I wait for you."

    this is awesome news.

    i just want a tidbit about the storyline, though i'm sure it's way too early for that.

    first we'll have to wait to hear something official from Universal (or whoever)......but this is a step in the right direction!

    JURASSIC PARK LIVES

    I'm hoping its Mad Max meets Jurassic Park in a post apocalyptic future where only a few human outposts remain. And the Road Warrior kills the dinosaurs. With Muldoons son, and Samuel L Jacksons character with one arm, pissed off.

    "Get these mother fucking raptors, off my mother fucking arm!"

    Exciting news! The line "And it's going to be unlike anything you've seen. It breaks away from the first three" scares me though. That means either dinosaurs taking over a city, fantasy genetic crossbred monsters, a combination of the two, or dinosaurs in space. Neither of those sounds appealing nor worthy of the Jurassic Park name.

    The other possibilty is a straight-up reboot or remake. Intriguing, but not ideal. I think we'd all rather have them build upon the existing canon than start something new or unrelated to what has been established and cherished.

    Well hell yes!

    Though my previous sentiments of a JPIV being a bad idea are still present, I can't deny that I want to see a 3D T-Rex ala Avatar tearing the shit out of things.

    They need to do this!

    Good to know you're still alive, Dan! :)

    Great! Thanks, man.

    No, this interview is new. He was being interviewed about the upcoming film "The Wolfman" and the upcoming Captain America film when the interviewer asked him about JP4. This interview was posted yesterday.

    There was a newsbit about Johnston speaking of a new JP trilogy a short while ago. But it turned out that came from an interview conducted quite a while ago, from even before Marshall shot the franchise down. Hence, it wasn't very relevant anymore.

    Is this latest news really new? And not a rehash of something Johnston said long ago? Please confirm this, somebody!


    At 11:53:25 AM on 1/14/2010, raptor2000 said:
    I dunno...I don't mind having new characters but it just wouldn't feel like JP if Grant and/or Malcolm and/or Hammond didn't show up at some point in some capacity.

    It's about time we got news like this. I love it.


    At 11:13:05 AM on 1/14/2010, Doni JP said:
    When we will have official news????

    Joe should have talk in dates.... date of start pre-production.... date of finish of history plot.... Release date????

    Universal, please, say something!!!!

    Spielberg, please, say something!!!!

    I don't see it necessary to get the original characters back, they can create whole new ones, and less irritating ones:P

    I hope it will be 3D, they should make a jurassic jungle this time around too...

    I'm ok with an all-new cast. I mean, how many times can you get the same characters dragged through the exact same situation? Let them give us NEW characters that will span 2 or all 3 of the new movies, for us to get used to and love as much as the old characters.


    At 9:01:08 AM on 1/14/2010, raptor2000 said:
    Yay! Over a year since we last got an update, I finally submitted some news that got posted!

    Anyway, I already talked about this on the message boards so I'll just repost my post from there.

    "Very intriguing...however, I'm a little concerned he's already saying JP4 will be the beginning of a new trilogy. First of all, how different are the new films going to be that they need to be viewed as standalone from the original 3 films? Also, 3 additional JP films may be a bit much. I love JP - obviously - but 3 more films? Plus, each of the previous 3 films were more or less independent of each other, beginning standalone stories that weren't really continuations of the story in the previous films. I'm not sure how having direct sequels that are deliberate continuations of each other will work...especially not spanning over 3 films.

    I'm very curious to see where they are going with this. I'm all for more JP, but as we all have painfully learned, more JP is not always a good thing. I really hope they can come up with another compelling story that can continue the story from the first 3 while at the same time taking it in a new fresh direction, but I'm kind of wishing they'd just focus on one film at a time instead of already planning out three. "

    YES!

    finally.

    now i'd like to know where Johnston gets all his news from.

    Marshall says no, Johnston says yes.

    either way, it's reassuring to hear this.

    only 1 thing scares me. if it's a new direction, new trilogy, will that leave room for Grant, Malcolm, and Hammond.

    i'm sorry, but if JP continues without them, it just won't be the same - at all.

    dinos can be in any movie, but those characters are like friends.
