Will There Be a ‘Jurassic Park 4’ or Is Director Joe Johnston a Big Fat Liar?


Director Joe Johnston (Jurassic Park 3) has announced that there will be a fourth Jurassic Park movie and that it will most likely kickoff a new trilogy.

He tells Boxoffice:

There is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen. It breaks away from the first three—it’s essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It’s going to be done in a completely different way. That’s pretty much all I can tell you.

If they keep working—and if audiences keep going to them—there’s no reason why there wouldn’t be. We just want to make them justified in their own right. We don’t want to make sequel after sequel just because there’s a market for it. We want to tell different, interesting stories. You don’t want to just sell hamburger.

Johnston first hinted at the possibility of a fourth installment in Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur-adventure series last November when he expressed interest in directing the film. Universal Pictures has yet to officially confirm the project.

In the meantime, you can catch Johnston’s reboot of The Wolfman, starring Benicio del Toro and Emily Blunt, on Feb. 12.
