The last thing we heard about Jurassic Park 4 was that the script would continue to be worked on after the Writers Strike. which took place this time last year. Now, producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy revealed during a junket for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button that plans have fallen through for a fourth entry in the Jurassic Park franchise.
When asked if there was any development on the long-anticipated sequel, Kennedy responded, “No… I don’t know. You know, when Crichton passed away, I sorta felt maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s a sign that we don’t mess with it.”
In my opinion there is currently a lack of good dinosaur movies. When the Jurassic Park franchise was active nobody else really wanted to go in the dino direction. Now if the franchise is officially dead it shouldn’t take long before someone else decides to make a dinosaurs movie. (I hope not anyway because I want myself some T-Rex!)
