Steven Spielberg’s mind may be currently pondering around his upcoming movie Lincoln, but the legendary filmmaker is part of another big project that many fans would like to know the latest status. That film is the much-talked about Jurassic Park 4.
Kathleen Kennedy, a longtime producing partner of Spielberg, recently mentioned while at a press release that Jurassic Park 4 is moving forward but it may take some time before fans can enjoy that day.
“[We're] writing, writing, writing,” Kennedy said of Jurassic Park 4 during a press event centered on the Blu-ray release of “E.T.” (the first the duo produced together). “It’s really hard to keep these things going when there’s an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going,” she added. “As filmmakers we often sit there going, ‘Okay, we have to answer the question, “Why do another one?”‘ If you can’t answer that question, you shouldn’t be doing it. It’s tough. We’re trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn’t going to disappoint people and is hopefully going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. So we’ll see, we’ve got to start with a script and the story.”
Jurassic Park 4 is being written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Kennedy also went on to talk about the studio being eager to get started on Jurassic Park 4. “[The studio] is just like, ‘When?!’” Kennedy laughed. “They don’t care about the agony we’re going through.”
