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!
