Jurassic Park 4 Is Not Happening
For those of you who are fans of the JP franchise, I've got some bad news. It appears that Michael Crichton's death last month had a great deal of influence when it comes to continuing the series.
"You know, when Crichton passed away, I kinda felt maybe that's it. Maybe that's a sign we don't mess with it." - Producer Kathleen Kennedy
The first movie's success has been well documented, and while The Lost World wasn't as good, it still was pretty enjoyable. And I'll be right alongside you in saying that Jurassic Park 3 sucked terribly, but call me an optimist - I was kind of looking forward to a fourth entry. Recent talks featured ideas of dinosaurs being outfitted with weapons for governmental attack purposes, and the return of Dr. Ellie Satler (Laura Dern's character) led me to believe that Sam Neill and the honorable Jeff Goldblum might come back also. I guess it's for the best that this isn't going to happen. But maybe in a few years...
