The Jurassic Park franchise has been stalled without a new entry for over a decade. The lackluster reaction to Jurassic Park 3 caused Paramount to pump the breaks and stop actively producing sequels. Currently, in the age of franchise rebirth those feelings of reluctance are being abandoned in favor of the potential revenue that the studio could make on the backs of the CGI dinosaurs.
After a long stint in development hell Jurassic Park 4 has finally gained some traction. Director Colin Trevorrow has been working off of a draft from screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Apparently, the Batteries Not Included director has opted to go in a new direction with the project, having just finished a a major re-write with Derek Connolly. The working title of the new draft?
No official comment on if this will be the title that graces screens but it’s the first bit of solid news we’ve heard about the project in some time. Most of the rumors have had to do with will the two principle cast members from the previous incarnation of the franchise return for this new installment.
