JURASSIC PARK 4 Update From Producer Frank Marshall
Steven Spielberg's longtime producer updates on the next installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, suggesting that the movie could be released within two years and that it's definitely a direct sequel instead of a reboot.
Speaking with Collider while promoting The Bourne Legacy, producer Frank Marshall gives an update on Jurassic Park 4, which has been in some form of development for several years. During the interview, Marshall reveals when we should expect to see the fourquel in theaters. “I would say that it will be on the screen within two years.” This goes in line with what Steven Spielberg (who will produce the film) said at last year's Comic-Con, where he revealed that they were aiming to release Jurassic Park 4 within 2-3 years.
Marshall went on to confirm that Universal is eying a summer release for the movie due to its being a “popcorn movie”, while also stating that it’s a sequel (rather than a reboot, which is what has been rumored in the past). He also teases the advance of visual effects in the fourquel. “That’s what’s gonna be great about it, technology’s taken a leap now that we can really do some great things.” This doesn't mean that practical effects/prosthetic work (which were used in the first three movies) will be abandoned; Marshall says that using practical dinosaurs feels real to the audience.
Last month, we heard that screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) were hired by Universal to work on the script for Jurassic Park 4. If the studio is indeed planning on releasing the movie sooner rather than later, then expect a director to be hired soon.
