'Jurassic Park 4' In The Works Soon Says Steven Spielberg
Genetic Tampering Turns Cute, Cuddly Dinos Into Monsters
Those pesky people-eating dinosaurs are coming back for another helping. Director Steven Spielberg says he plans to make Jurassic Park 4 just as soon as he gets the chance.
Spielberg, currently promoting his animated feature The Adventures of Tintin, told ComingSoon.net that he's been so busy with other projects that he hasn't had time to do another Jurassic Park.
But all that's about to change.
"I haven't been active in the last year because I've been so busy obviously on War Horse, Tintin and now I'm currently shooting Lincoln, but right now, it's on the schedule to bring out another Jurassic Park."
When asked what new carnivorous beasts and biological disasters he had in mind for the fourth installment, Spielberg stayed mum.
"It's just another boring secret," he said.
The Jurassic Park series is one of the most successful film franchises in history, grossing just under $2 BILLION at the box office since the first film debuted in 1993. Each film has centered around a catastrophic attempt to clone extinct dinosaurs and feature them in amusement parks.
So do we have any clues as to what might be in the fourth film? Paleontologist (and Jurassic Park advisor) Jack Horner told The Smithsonian magazine that humans have made the dinos even worse.
"They've already brought dinosaurs back ... so how could they make the dinosaurs scarier?" He then suggested genetic tampering has made the prehistoric creatures bigger, scarier and hungrier.
