Way back in 1993, Steven Spielberg made the classic Jurassic Park. For more than 20 years, the franchise has been trying to live up to that. Frankly, Jurassic Park II was weak. The third was slightly better, since it took more from the books by author Michael Crichton.
It's been almost ten years since Jurassic Park III (2002). Back then, director Steven Spielberg said that he planned to produce Jurassic Park IV and director Joe Johnston would direct.
So, where's our stinkin' movie already? It turns out, the problem is the script.
Producer Kathleen Kennedy recently told Coming Soon the problem.
"Writing, writing, writing." Kennedy said, "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. 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. We've got to start with a script and the story."
The pressure is really on. The first was a masterpiece, and with Crichton dead, it's a challenge to match his original vision.
