Kathleen Kennedy on Jurassic Park 4
Work continues on Jurassic Park 4, as producer Kathleen Kennedy gives an update on the film…
The long-mooted fourth Jurassic Park movie went from a possible project to a probable one earlier this year, when producer Frank Marshall said that “it will be on the screen within two years”. For that to happen, the film needs to move into production next year, and while promoting the Blu-ray release of E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial, co-producer Kathleen Kennedy was asked how things were going with the film.
”Writing, writing, writing”, she told Coming Soon. “"It's really hard to keep these things going when there's an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going. As filmmakers, we often sit there going, 'Okay. We have to answer the question, 'Why do another one?'' If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't be doing it”.
“We're trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn't going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We've got to start with a script and the story”.
On the writing front, the last we heard was that Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa had been recruited to take a crack at the screenplay. They’re the pair who penned Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, amongst others.
