The Kidd here...
Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg are all ready to trot out the original JURASSIC PARK in 3D next summer, but, if producer Frank Marshall is to be believed, it's not just extra box office they're looking to rake in. It's the opportunity to prime audiences for the long-discussed JURASSIC PARK 4, which may "on the screen within two years."
Collider recently talked with Marshall while he was promoting THE BOURNE LEGACY, and when he was asked about another JURASSIC PARK sequel, that's the time frame he gave.
The next JURASSIC PARK is still director-less, so, with Spielberg opting out of the director's chair once again yet remaining rather hands-on in its development, I'd say they might want to get a move on just a bit if they're really hoping to make summer 2014.
I'm eager to check out the original in a theatre once again, as I still remember how incredible those dinosaurs looked coming to life 19 years ago now. Sure, the 3D is whatever... but, if it means exposing a new generation to the film in order to bring about the necessary interest for another installment to happen, then so be it. I just have to hope that a new sequel is more in line with the first film than the two that followed it. JURASSIC PARK III is at least better than THE LOST WORLD, but that's not saying much.
