Spielberg Interested In Next Jurassic Project

Jurassic Park

The Jurassic Park series is now, as hard as it is to believe, 13 years old and we’ve seen 5 years go by without any return to the dinosaur infested islands. So it’s about time we saw a fourth in the series. Sky News is reporting that Spielberg is raring to get started on the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series, and is considering directing the movie himself. Spielberg directed the first two movies, but left the third in the hands of Jumanji director Joe Johnston. Spielberg has said that Johnston is still his number one choice for the job, but if he’s unable to step up to the plate then Spielberg himself will take the directors chair.

The film is still set for a 2008 release, meaning someone somewhere has got a script together. What does everyone think? Did Johnston do a decent job of the third film? Should the Jaurras Park franchise be layed to rest?
