Joe Johnston Lets Slip New Details On Jurassic Park IV!

Joe Johnston Lets Slip New Details On <i>Jurassic Park IV</i>!

The Captain America: The First Avenger director reveals that discussions are currently ongoing for a fourth instalment in the dinosaur franchise, and promises a new and exciting take...

There's been some talk of a fourth Jurassic Park movie for a while now, and Joe Johnston (director of the third instalment in the dinosaur franchise and upcoming Marvel Studios picture, Captain America: The First Avenger) has been attached to the project for equally as long. With Mark Protosevich, who worked on the story for THOR, and Steven Spielberg currently developing it, here's what Johnston had to say when talking to Screen Rant recently.

"We are in discussions about 'Jurassic Park 4.' The most important thing I can tell you is that it starts a new trilogy that will go off in a different direction — a completely different direction that is very exciting, and different from anything we’ve seen. It starts with the history of the first trilogy, but it spins it off in a completely different direction. That’s all I can tell you."

What do you guys make of this news? Would you like to see a fourth movie helmed by Joe Johnston, or should he get to work on Captain America 2? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

I don't know why, but I am really interested in another Jurassic Park Trilogy.

Nice as usual stuff Josh.

That's funny, I just finished watching the third film again.
I'm interested in another for sure.

Interesting yeah but i think the dude should focus on marvel´s Doctor Strange, The Black Panther, Namor The Sub-Mariner, The Tomb Of Dracula or Werewolf By Night next!:)
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/17/2011, 2:19 PM
i would like to see him tackle with those!
ReillyParker - 7/17/2011, 2:19 PM
Maybe Johnston can do a Savage Land movie?
Ambushbug - 7/17/2011, 2:22 PM
@Jazzywazzy, Well, Johnston is under contract to do a second Marvel movie, whether it ends up being Cap 2 or Winter Soldier as he wants to make, so he will be back regardless of what happens with the Jurassic franchise.

Dinosaurs... from Space!
comiccow6 - 7/17/2011, 2:55 PM
Intruder, you could be right, but my vote is on Human-Dino WAR!
MrPagBrewster - 7/17/2011, 2:58 PM
@RedSkull, I was thinking the exact same thing
comiccow6 - 7/17/2011, 3:00 PM
But if it is set in the future make it like Planet of the Apes, where Dinos rule and have a human theme park!
Guerillas - 7/17/2011, 3:18 PM
@comiccow6 damn dirty dinos!
SeaSerpentine - 7/17/2011, 3:19 PM

SugarYumYum - 7/17/2011, 3:22 PM
Don't know how I feel about this.

If it's good, awesome. If it's bad, well... yeah, w/e.

robsolo32 - 7/17/2011, 3:40 PM
I've been reading these blogs for a long time. This is my very first post. I logged on to type this:

@tea, those parody jurassic park photos are the best you've posted, yet! Absolutely brilliant. I laughed my a-z-z off!
mbomb22 - 7/17/2011, 4:15 PM
I hope Speilberg comes back and at least produces this. that would be amazing!
PaulRom - 7/17/2011, 4:21 PM
@Tea LMFAO, dude those pictures made my day. :D
Destroyer14 - 7/17/2011, 4:32 PM
They gotta bring back the Spinosaurus for this.
dancingmonkey08 - 7/17/2011, 4:43 PM
OMFG end this franchise please, I love the 1st three but 4 is pointless

and good god Tea, I cant stop laughing at your pics
naterator - 7/17/2011, 4:44 PM
dancingmonkey08 - 7/17/2011, 4:45 PM
oh and Johnston, get making Cap 2 for 2014!

I want the first half to be Zemo in World War 2 and then Zemo Jr continuing on his grandfather's legacy in present day
Mileena16 - 7/17/2011, 4:50 PM
I would really like to see this!
Vital - 7/17/2011, 4:51 PM
@tea, lmao! Too damn funny. I love the Pedo bear one too, that's clever.
Vital - 7/17/2011, 4:55 PM
Oh and I'm totally down with a new trilogy. Why are people so upset? If it sucks, then you don't have to watch it, or you can say 'I told you so', so it's a win-win for you. Why do you not want them to make for OTHERS? Kinda selfish ain't it? Everyone else gets screwed cause you don't want to see another film? Where the [frick] is people's sense of fair these days. Assholes, just tons of assholes now. This is you- "I don't like Coca Cola so they shouldn't make any more. If I don't like it, no one else can either".
Rodimus9 - 7/17/2011, 4:59 PM
When will people stop going to those damn islands? Are humans really that dumb?

That part in part two where the T-Rex is F'n up Dego was my fav. They need this to take place on the mainland.
CyborgNinja - 7/17/2011, 5:20 PM
I'm all for new Jurassic Park movies. THey definitely have to go in a different direction with this though because they butchered the last two movies.
TheRaven20 - 7/17/2011, 5:36 PM
I liked the first and second, third was kinda dumb. But I prefer if they wait like 5 more years and remake it maybe more like the books by Micahel Chrichton (cause as good as the movies are, they're very differnet from the books). OR like they say maybem go in a completely different direction like Arctic Park with mammoths and sabretooth tigers. I don't know I think that be pretty cool.
StingrayX - 7/17/2011, 6:52 PM
I'm a huge Jurassic Park fan...I can't wait for the 4th one!
