Dinosaurs have been extinct since 2001, when “Jurassic Park III” failed to reach the bar set by its predecessors. But now, Steven Spielberg is thinking about bringing the vertebrates back to life with a fourth installment of the pre-historic franchise, The Hollywood Reporter reported.
Spielberg has allegedly been talking with Mark Protosevich, who wrote 2006’s “Poseidon,” about bringing “Jurassic Park” back to the big screen. However, according to THR, Universal Pictures says nobody has been attached to the project as of yet, and that it’s still just an idea at this point.
The first film of the trilogy grossed more than $900 million worldwide, while the second, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” raked in more than $615 million. “Jurassic Park III,” with an estimated budget of $90 million, earned just over $360 million worldwide.
Does a “Jurassic Park” reboot have a chance of succeeding after a 10-plus-year hiatus? Sound off below!

OMG!!!! I LOVE JURASSIK PARK!!!!!! WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THE FOURTH ONE I THOUGHT THAT EVERYONE WAS JUST JOKING AND I WANTED THEM TO STOP TEASING ME BECAUSE I AM ABSEESED WITH DINOSAURS AND JURASSIC PARK! BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!! ANYWAY, I WAS LOOKING FOR AN EXTRA CREDIT ARTICLE FOR MY SCIENCE CLASS AND I WAS DOING IT ON DINOSARUS! OF COURSE! AND AS I WAS GOING ALONG, I SAW JURASSIC PARK 4!!!! I LITERALLY SCREAMED, FELL OFF OF MY CHAIR AND WAS ROLLING ON THE GROUND SCREAMING BECAUSE I WAS SO EXCITED. MY SISTER ASKED ME WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME BUT I COULDN'T ANSWER BECAUSE I WAS TOO BUSY SCREAMING MY HEAD OFF IN ENJOYMENT!!!! I'M STILL SOOOOOO EXCITED! PLEASE HURY UP AND MAKE THE MOVIE!! I CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER!!!!!!
The first one was awesome, the second one was good, the third one sucked, let's just stop.
What r u talking about? The first one was awesome! You were right about that. The second one SUCKED!!!! The third was the best though because they introduced the spinosarus! I loved the way that they made it snap the t-rex's neck!!!! Ever since then I realized that t-rex does not deserve the name "Tyrant Lizard King" Only the biggest and the baddest should be called the king, and spinosarus deserves the crown! It's the biggest carnivore ever! The best dinosaur too! Did u know that the t-rex is related to the chicken? What a wimp! But he sure does taste good though! YUMMMMMM!
Could be good to make it rated R like Jaws. Just ask little Alex Kinter or Chrissie from the opening scene in Jaws, that in R movies you never know who will become lunch. With kids roles in JP and JPII, and even Billy in JPIII, you know which of the cast is expendable. Rated R’s are unpredictable. More gore and different kinds of attacks could be welcomed.
I thought the rumor on JP4 was that the dinosaurs would have weapons in this one? Also it's been long enough that muldoon could have a grown son, throw him in the mix.
YESSS I HAVE WAITED FOR SOOO LONGGG!!! !
Well considering Spielberg signed a deal with Disney in 2009 to distribute 6 movies not sure universal is going to be notified for a long while nor is this movie coming out for a long while if he does decide to do it, unless he gets out of his deal with Disney or Disney buys the movie rights.
Whether JP4 happens or not...REMAKE JURASSIC PARK and THE LOST WORLD (with Spielberg as Producer)
A facebook page has been started to promote the campaign. Like the page to show that you're gonna CONTACT UNIVERSAL (by e-mail or postage)
If Universal is afraid to remake Jurassic Park and The Lost World (because of the biased fanboys) then we need to give Universal the idea to GET SPIELBERG TO BE THE PRODUCER OF THE REMAKES. It might be the only way for the fanboys to have faith in the project....("In Steve We Trust")
The posters for the remakes could even say: "STEVEN SPIELBERG PRESENS" (just like other movies he was the producer of.)
How can you not understand why do we want remakes? WE WANT A CLOSER ADAPTATION OF THE NOVELS.
I read JP and was, like most, extremely excited when I heard they were making a movie of it. The movie concept was all about the consequences of man trying to play God. Frankenstein with dynos. The 2nd and 3rd were bitter disappointments. If they make fourth, i worry it will be a disappointment.
FORGET DINOSAURS!!! THIS COUNTRY NEEDS A CHRISTIAN THEME PARK WITH JESUS CHRIST AS OUR SAVIOR AND LORD!!!!
I would like to see Jurassic Park 4 unleash the dinosaurs on Washington D.C. The dinosaurs could have a reunion with some of those old foggies, but at least it would paint the image of getting a clean start after the political carnage is cleaned up of course.
I like it
I usually can't stand it when Hollywood milks a franchise for all it's worth, but I have to day, Jurassic Park has always been one of my favorite! It's about pure escapism for me, and to be honest, I'll probably line up at the the theatre to see the sequels until the day I die.
Loved the 1st one, second was good, 3rd was ok. Maybe do something with some different prehistoric creatures. Giant snakes, alligators, sharkes, etc along with the regular T-rex, Triceratops, etc.
they wont reboot it and they shouldnt AT ALL!!! But i cant wait for it!! loved the series and eagerly awaited 10 years since the last one when i was only 6 years old!!!! please produce the movie
i would go to see it i love all three movies so this could be interesting. i hope they do make a fourth movie.
What are they waiting for?? My kids can't get enough from the DVDs!!
Only if they bring back Mr. DNA....
HAHA i called this about a month ago on here for the SAME movie. of course they will "reboot" it. hollywood has ran out of good ideas and they will just ruin a movie to make it 3D
ALL I GOT TO SAY IS GET ER DONE
Jurrasic Park is my daughter's favorite movie. We've watched the trilogy like 45 times. So another one to watch would be great.
They should definitely have a jurrassic park 4. It would be amazing!!!
oh yeah i hope there is another jurassic park movie the other jurassic park movies.rocked my fave was the first one i have all 3 parts of jurassic park.
I've seen all three movies countless times and always enjoyed them. Would love to see a 4th. All those that don't want to see a 4th – DON'T GO!!!!!
The first movie was epic, the second was pretty good, but the third was well below the first two. I don't believe Spielberg did the third movie, and you could tell the quality wasn't there. I'd like to see a fourth movie with today's technology, but all computer dinosaurs would be a mistake. The third movie looked like they did a lot of computer work, and didn't seem as realistic to me. I'd like to see the series end on a high note though, so I'm hoping for a fourth edition.
Of course! Make another JP! Add in some of the dinos that live in the water and throw in some hybrids! 3D it of course!
I don't know. Steven Spielberg doesn't have a good track record at making a fourth movie in a series. Remember Indiana Jones IV??
Good point. Jones IV was embarrassing. Did Harrison Ford really just say "Nucular bomb"? Did he really just pull him out of quicksand using an anaconda...?
Maybe it stands a chance if George Lucas isn't allowed anywhere near it. :D
I think a 4th JP would definately be awesome in 3D especially for those who grew up with the series and also for the newer generation. I remember hearing about JP 4 back in 2002 when I went to Universal Hollywood while I was in the Air Force and I think the audiences are due for another jump-out-of-your-seat thrill-ride that onle Spielberg can bring!
Nothing beats a good "DINO" movie....Why not?
Jurassic Park 4: the musical. The dinosaurs break into song & dance!
XDXDXD LOL Very funny idea XD ha ha ha
I thought the ending to the first JP movie was a great change from the book. Things that were left out of the book were covered in the 3rd movie,which I though was better than the 2nd. But I just dont think the original story can be topped. Crichton was a genius!
spared no expense.
Nature finds a way.
As you can see, we all loved the movies, but the story lines make a difference for this Genre, and we loved the cast, as long as it stays true to Dinosaur meets Man and not get weird any new movie gets my ticket money
The first 2 were great, the 3rd was pretty much crap. It was just 2 hours of people being chased by dinosaurs with no other plot to speak of. Michael Crichton was an amazing author, which is what made the first 2 so good. But the 3rd seemed like someone wanting to capitalize off a good thing, but didn't have a story to back it. Even without Crichton on the scene, if Spielberg is at the helm this time, I'm confident a 4th one would redeem the series. Then just delete the 3rd one and pretend it never existed.
there was a jurassic park 3???
I loved all the Jurassic Park movies. I see potential for Speilburg making an awesome fourth edition to the series but I can also see it easily being a failed attempt of making a buck with no plot value. Jurassic Park IV is definitely going to need a superior story line in order to keep the series intriguing. In my opinion, the best concept would be that INGEN employees have continued research discreetly on the mainland with attempts of miniaturization or other hybridization, maybe a mastodon or saber tooth cat.... however, the "extinct creature escapes and causes chaos" theme is getting old, so possibly a theme based on conservation and giving the no-longer-extinct creatures to have a second chance at surviving. Where??? That could be one of the problems addressed with the story line. If "eradicating the problem" is the primary objective of the plot, it would be all too easy to burn out both islands and effectively make the entire movie five minutes, including credits. Good idea of a way to deplete excessive napalm reserves though.......
I sincerely hope they do. And in 3D. Or even remade the first, so it's more like the book. Either way, I'm look forward to a new Jpark.
Jurassic Park needs to stay extinct. There's nothing new to be seen; no new thrills to be excavated from that old can
It would be great to have a JP Part 4. However, they had already started filming this movie until Michael Crichton passed away, and they stopped filming. This one was called "Jurassic Park The Extinction." Will this just be them finishing filming this movie?? Or are going to start over from scratch with something else?
Really loved the first one, the second one sucked beyond belief, and the third was a tiny bit of fresh air. In all, the first was the best and I will be interested to see what they do with the 4th. Hopefully it won't be in 3D otherwise I will lose all respect for Spielberg.
If it's done right then yeah it'd be awesome, especially in 3-D. However, I smell the Hollywood trend of rehashing garbage instead of coming up with something original. They should make a feature of the film in where a T-Rex will rip the heads off the annoying audience members that blab/text on their cellphones throughout the whole movie! lmfao That would justify the severly marked up 3-D movie ticket prices!
You are not Michael Crichton, Steven. Let it go. $$$
Oh, yes! The first three were great! Sure people started to lose interest, but, now, since it's been a long while, The time is right for a fourth one. I believe that most of the old generation and nearly all of the newer generations will be excited to see it. I look forward to seeing it now. GET IT DONE!
I would rather see them remake the original JP. CGI has advanced so much in the last 18 years, imagine what they could now do with the original. Plus they could actually follow the book more closely and right a couple of wrongs that were made when they changed things.
I loved all three movies and if they would have done number four years ago it would have been too much but now with how much better graphics have gotten this one will probably be more scarey than the first three...or at least i hope so. It's been a long enough break I just hope they come up with a good story line...it would be unlikely after three attacks that any of the orginal characters would go anywhere near those islands.
Yes please I want more JP plastic dinosaurs to purchase to add to my collection.
I agree with vf: I mean the dude (Michael Crichton) is gone. JP 1 was an awesome film. JP2 was okay. JP3 was enjoyable but wasn't up to par with the pervious ones lol. I think Spielberg is a brillant man, but it does seem like he's just trying to piggy back on this thing. Let it go already. Come up with new, original stories.......I would still watch a fourth installement though lol.
How about: "Real Dinosaurs of Orange County?"
Just like Jaws another sequel will not bring the excitement as the original but I'm always game for another JP
How bout new species or ever hybrid species idea? maybe ice age species like sabertooth and dimetradon
please please please! MAKE MORE JP!!!!!!! :)
rerelease the first 3 in 3D then JP4 in 3D.. ka-ching ka-ching! Jurassic Park is a classic!!
We've reached the point where FX are so good in Fantasy/Sci Fi movies ( though not those made for TV on SyFy ) that for JP4 to be a success...there will actually have to be a well-written story to go with it. If they have a good story, they will do good biz. Besides, there's a whole new generation of tweens and teens who were too young to see Jurassic Park on a big screen. If Spielberg puts his heart into it, it will do fine.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE MAKE A 4TH ONE!!!!!!! I THINK ALL THE PEOPLE WHO GREW UP WITH IT AS CHILDREN WILL APPRECIATE A NEW ONE AS ADULTS!!! JP KICKS ASS!!!!!
They can get a new cast and they can find the canister of embryos Nedry dropped in the mud and they can genetically engineer those to make new hybrid dinosaur species.
That's stupid... Dennis Nerdy's embryo can having ANY relevance? It would have only been viable for a few days, tops, after he dropped it. The story line would have to jump from the time period of the first movie, and be completely detached from the plot of JP2 and JP3 if the story line is to include the present.
look i love them all! the odd thing is i loved the 3rd the best. everyone hated it. i think it was awesome.
at some point i would have to agree, but definitely number 1 is a classic. JP3 was waaaaaay better than JP2. i think S.S. got lost in The Lost World
Liked all three Jurassic Parks. Would like to see how they will keep any or all characters the same and not looking the worse for ware after many years.
Spielberg used to mean quality. Now it looks like he's just after the almighty dollar. Crichton has passed and he was The mastermind behind that great story. Spielberg did bring it to life in a remarkable way but a "reboot"? C'mon, is Hollywood afraid to tell new stories? Hollywood is turning into Broadway, just keep rehashing the same exact thing with a different cast. They are now fooling the public by calling it "reboots." Hollywood also is trying to convince us to shell out more bucks for 3-D movies. Apparently the studios have been beginning to get the message of the public lackluster response. Movie prices are already outrageous. If they brought the price several notches down, more people would go to see it and piracy would seriously diminish.
1. 3D rocks.
2. I hear this criticism about remakes, sequels, and reboots constantly. It's NOT NEW. How many Tarzan movies were made in the 30's and 40's? Remakes aren't all bad– Ben-Hur was a remake. I don't understand how we can watch a season of a television show that's a total of about 20 hours long, and then complain when a 2-hour film gets 2 more hours a few years later. What's the big deal? If you don't like it, there are plenty of other things to do. If enough people are uninterested, sequels and remakes wouldn't get made.
JP 4: Twilight Dinos! The dinosaurs reach Forks and a battle ensues between them, the wolves and the vampires. The dinos win by eating everyone. Movie over. :)
JP1 was the 2nd movie I ever saw at the theater (used to live in a tiny town). So I might be interested in seeing it. There would have to be some pretty groundbreaking visual effects and good writing for this to really make any money though.
I'm an azz-hole and I like boring people with stupid things that comes out my mouth. I post on every blog so people thinks what i say is important. I am important. I am just like most women..i do not know when to shut my f***ing mouth bc everything I say is important.
what you just said doesnt make sense. If you think people are stupid for posting on blogs then why did you post? you are offensive and rude and i dont like you. go get a REAL life and stop pretending you are "so different" from everyone else. jerk.
Return to Jurassic Park a new team goes to the original island....been waiting for this movie for years!
i think the 4th one will be bigger and better! i think mych better effects and really good actors, maybe 3D might be nice..could be a good turn out.
I have liked all three movies. If Steven made a 4th, I would go see it. However it would be great if JJ Abrahams worked with him on it to lose the comic book feel and made it a serious adventure. 3D is a must!!
Do it!! I have enjoyed the franchise so far (well JP III not as much), can't wait to have my pants scared off!
Buffy with her pants scared off??? Hmmmm Cool, make the movie!! LOL
Will it be a reboot as in start over from the beginning or will it really be a sequel? That is the big question.
If they do a sequel ,lets drop the whole we are on an Island with dinosaurs story line, been done in 3 films.....enough. Either they do some story that involves dealing with the dinosaurs breeding and spreading on the mainland even if it is still in remote areas of Central America or find some other spin on the story.
Please! I would love to see the dinosaurs again. It'll be hard to do, given the last plotlines, but I think it's possible. Bring back Goldblum and Neill and I think it'd be a party.
I think this is actually the perfect time to bring the dinosaurs back! I loved all the previous movies, but I think we were saturated with them . Now that we've had a 10 yr. break it's time to crank that sucker up again, & this time bring in some different & unusual species, maybe even some hybrids! That would be cool!!
I love Jurassic Park. I'd say I still pull out the DVD's once a year and watch them. Yeah it's cheesy but who doesn't love dinosaurs? Even the terrible 3rd one was still better than most movies I've paid to see recently. I'd love to see them play off some of the old plot lines and things :)
I HOPE THEY MAKE A PART 4.THE EFFECTS ARE ALL SOME.
I want another one!!!
We saw at the end of JP-III that those Pterodactyl flying off in the distance...where did they go?? JP-IV is where the movie will pick up from. Then the government will decide that this is enough – no more beasty roaming the earth and nuke the island! At the end of the movie, you see a in dense smoke, an round object resembling a nest of eggs... (stay tune of JP-V) and on..and on...I hope to live until they finally put JP to rest!
I'm totally getting married soon so if anybody wants to buy me a dinosaur as a wedding gift that would be really cool
Marry me and I'll make all your dreams come true.
They really should remake this movie. The first one was an old movie with cheesy effects. It was ok, but kinda lame. Wasn't even scary. Do it right this time, put in cool actors and make the dinosors more realistic!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously? Are there no original ideas any more?
I loved the first one as much as the next person, but after that, they weren't that good.
If it is 3D count me out..I refuse to spend $20.00 per person for a stupid movie, or maybe even a not so stupid movie. With the economy the way it is, i don't go to the theater simply because it is to damn expensive now...
You sound old. Just stay home and watch CSI lol! 3D is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
go in the morning. most movie theaters have discounted ticket prices during matinee hours. and crowds are small
Garry, go to the downtown Libertyville theater in Illinois. It's not 3D and instead of $20.00 per person, it's only like $5.00. Per person! And if you are an old person, then you shold like it because it looks like an old fashioned theater. It only plays 2 movies at once too! You should check it out.
Absolutely!! I loved all of the movies and would be thrilled if they made another one. I think it has been so long since the last one that now it will be a big hit again. I REALLY hope they do decide to go ahead and start shooting!!!!
YES YES YES more JP! Cannot wait. Life will find a way!!!
God creates dinosaurs, God destorys dinosaurs, God creates man, Man destorys God, Man creates dinosaurs, Dinosaurs Eat man...Woman inherits the Earth!!!!
I love that line!
You go girl!!
They made 3 Jurassic Park movies already? I couldn't even sit through the first one. Nobody said the general public has good taste.
Didn't see anyone claiming you had taste either, but that is how it goes.
Yea, okay, not to be rude or anything, but I just wanted to let you know that t-rex was the 4th largest carnavore. Spinosaurus was actually the largest and the most succesful. In my oppinoin, t-rex was actually preety weak. I hate what it's name means, it doesn't deserve it! and I only hate t-rex because everyone thinks that it was the most feirce. Which it wasn't! The only t-rex that I like is Sue and that's only because she/he is the most commplete.
All i can say is we dont allow dinosaurs here in Utah. They are dangerous and we dont need them here. If you people in new york or san francisco want them the more power to you. Utah is OUR state and dinosaurs just better keep out.
@ Cora LDS ... You are a real nimrod. Utah is famous for its dinosaurs. Or haven't you heard of the Utahraptor and that Dinosaur National Monument is located in part in your state?
Nimrod means that he's a skillful hunter. Its also the name of Noah's Grandson...the one with the arc. sooooooo I think moron is probably a better term. (THE MORE YOU KNOW) sorry had to sing the song...as for JP reboot. meh how bout they make Jaws 5 oh yeah you know its time for another Jaws movie. OOOOOOR The BLOB RETURNS that would be a fun mess. OOOOOOOR The Goonies part 2 starring all their grand kids. Sadly there are probably people who'd like those movies to be made. I mean it all sarcastically.
I dont think it could hurt. EPIC movies i.e. The Dark Knight, are becoming more and more popular so a longer movie shouldn't be out of the question...and Maybe a more true to form adaptation of the book is in order. Things have changed dramatically in the nearly 20 yrs since JP in 93/94...the audiences are more finicky, and expect the best. A reboot might be the very best thing for the franchise.
If audiences expected the best they wouldn't have gone and seen the 2nd Transformers movie at all.
I agree Eric. Oh and wrong, YOUR WRONG!!!!
How about no.
Let me guess...it will be 3D. What a surprise.
Will Betty White be starring in it?
uhh...yeah! she will be the main dinosaur trying to eat jeff goldblum
They'll just make it a huge 3d fest so they can justify doubling the ticket prices.
Absolutely! Come on Steve, get on it. "Must go faster, must go faster"
Dodgeson! Dodgeson! We've got Dodgeson here!
"See no body cares. Nice hat...you trying to look like a secret agent?" :)
Hold onto your butts
Quiet, all of you!
Eventually you will have dinosaurs on your dinosaur tour? Yes?
"He left us!........ He left us!"
Billy-"It's a tyranosaurus."
Dr. Allen Grant- "No, it sounds bigger!"
It'll have to have a good storyline and an explanation for what's happened since the other movies. It also has to have an awesome cast; I don't know who, but a great cast of actors.
Sure it does. All of the JP movies were pretty good. I'll check it out if they do!
like the lost world very scaring or attration park in orlando florida vey realistic reproduction about tyrex steven spilberg got nice script and effect to make it real i probably look more and hundred times the movies make me remenber the world havent change ooooooooooooooh joelle esther benyayer
It will NEVER match the surprise and delight value of the original. The first movie ushered in the days of topflight special effects and sound. It was the beginning of going to the movies as an experience that couldn't be duplicated (then) in the home. This just seems like a completely lacking in imagination, money-grab. Just like the recent "Super 8" which was a poor man's ET.
Loved the original, liked the 2nd, eh on the third. Would love if they could bring back the original cast and do it right!
Seems like Richard is a little Jaded. While it might not be the best idea to reboot Jurassic park. Throwing Super 8 under the bus for new reason seems off. Super 8 was produced by Spielberg... a poor mans version would be on YouTube.
Richard seems old.. out of date... out of touch....
JP 4? WOULD BE INTERESTING TO FIND OUT!!
To anyone who enjoys Jurassic Park i would entirely recommend the books writtin by Michael Crichton. I've read them multiple times over the years and they still amaze. Hope they do make a new JP!!!
RichardISaSHMUCK- you seem to have gone to large extremes to refute Richard's statement. Go get a life my friend. Because you don't have one!
you bet they do with technology and effects improvements over the past 10 years. Have an attractive cast, goo story and it will do well.
JP1 was why we go to the movies I thought 2 & 3 lacked luster but with new cgi 4 will jump off the screen or lets hope!!!!!
I'll tell you what I would like to see: at least cameo appearances of Kathy Coleman and maybe Phillip Paley from the 1970's Land of the Lost TV series. Those two were doing fine when they were interviewed for a special feature as part of a 2000 DVD release of the old show, and they were cut from doing cameo appearances for the horrible recent movie that was based on it. That was yet one more way that movie did no justice at all to the old show's better qualities, such as the background artwork. There was also something about the combination of otherworldliness, dinosaurs and that bluegrass music that was really cool but will never be duplicated, ever.
I Think it will be sweet i mean Kelly is right it would be awesome if they the dinos showed up in D.C.
I have been waiting for this for over a decade! One possible storyline is that since the marines were called in at the end of the last one, the US government tries to make these creatures into weapons.
The bar is a lot higher now than when JP first came out. It was the first movie to make things like dinosaurs 100% believable and that astounded everyone. You thought they really had dino's on the set. But todays' CGI standards have raised the bar. Look no one saw JP because of the incredible script or acting (no offense the actors were fine) it was to see a dinosaur. Well, been there done that so to speak...
Reviving dinosaurs is one of the coolest, most interesting sci fi concepts. Dinosaurs are top-of-the-food-chain predators and the concept of them being brought back to life with science is in my mind one of the most realistic horror movie scenarios out there. Plus dinosaurs are just plain cool. So I want to see more dinosaurs in movies, especially in a realistic universe like the one created by JP... At the moment it seems JP is the only realistic universe created on screen with dinosaurs. So if they make another movie I'll watch it, because whether it's worse or better than the previous installments, it's the only movie filling that niche.
