During the Tintin panel at the San Diego Comic Con, director Steven Spielberg announced Jurassic Park 4 is in the works.

I’ll let that sink in…

Got it? Because I’m sure your scrambling to the IMDB to look up the info on Jurassic Park 3, as it was such a stellar success.

The story and writer have already been set… and now we can all sleep soundly knowing Jeff Goldblum has a reason to start doing a happy dance.

As much as I liked the first movie in terms of the special effects, you can tell I’m thrilled over this news.

    $365,000,000 worldwide… so yeah, pretty succesful.

      Don’t confuse him with numbers, his mind’s made up. :)

    Its hard to imagine what they will do with this. I would rather someone had written a really top-notch sequal book, and they decided to make a movie of it, then them saying “Hey! Let’s do a sequal” and trying to figure out what to put in it. If it turns out to be more like Indiana Jones 4 or Jurassic Park 2 then I’d rather watch someone beat dirt out of a rug.
    Now why can’t they put their money behind “At the Mountains of Madness”?

    If they can put some power in showing some awesome dinosaurs and raptor killing fun I’ll watch. The first one was just really good. I think I’m going to watch it tonight.

    I thought part 3 was better than part 2, which is still not saying much. So why not?

      Absolutely agree. Why would you choose the mathematician over the archaeologist in trying to go back to the island. It never made sense. I think Goldblum had friends and that’s why he got #2.

    I hope they don’t follow that cyber-dino-killer-soldier script that was being tossed around several years back.
