Steven Spielberg Gives Updates On Next Jurassic Park And Indiana Jones Films
Steven Spielberg recently sat down and talked about the status of two of his upcoming much anticipated projects, continuations of the Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones film franchisees.
While chatting with Empire, Steven Spielberg was asked on the current status of the next Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park films. While not going in to much on Jurassic Park Spielberg did say it is currently being written and that the story for this one is better than the one for the third one. When answering about Indiana Jones, Spielberg deflected the question by saying the question should be directed at George Lucas. He also gives his thoughts about the last Indy film Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
On Jurassic Park
"The screenplay is being written right now by Mark Protosevich. I'm hoping that will come out in the next couple of years. We have a good story. We have a better story for four than we had for three..."
On the Next Indiana Jones Movie:
"You have to ask George Lucas. George is in charge of breaking the stories. He's done it on all four movies. Whether I like the stories or not, George has broken all the stories. He is working on Indy V. We haven't gone to screenplay yet, but he's working on the story. I'll leave it to George to come up with a good story."
On What he thought of Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull:
I'm very happy with the movie. I always have been... I sympathize with people who didn't like the MacGuffin because I never liked the MacGuffin. George and I had big arguments about the MacGuffin. I didn't want these things to be either aliens or inter-dimensional beings. But I am loyal to my best friend. When he writes a story he believes in - even if I don't believe in it - I'm going to shoot the movie the way George envisaged it. I'll add my own touches, I'll bring my own cast in, I'll shoot the way I want to shoot it, but I will always defer to George as the storyteller of the Indy series. I will never fight him on that."
