RISE OF THE JURASSIC PARK OF THE DINOSAURS

Some of the flaws of the modern Academy Awards are that they aren’t really designed to acknowledge excellent writing in certain genres, such as comedies, horror and science fiction. If they (and other awards) were, last year’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes might have received a lot more attention and acclaim for its screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. If one thinks back just a year, there was (and rightly so) a lot of cynicism among movie fans of all stripes that a prequel to the aging and dilapidated Planet of the Apes franchise could be anything other than an inevitable misfire. By grounding Rise of the Planet of the Apes within a very contemporary setting of modern science and morals, Jaffa and Silver were able to make people care about the franchise again. And that right there leads us to another aging franchise that needs exactly that sort of jump start, as Jurassic Park nears its 20th anniversary next summer. So, yes, Universal Pictures has indeed hired Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver to start work on a script for a fourth Jurassic Park feature film. There’s really nothing else to report about what their script might entail: sequel, reboot or prequel is anyone’s guess. The only thing that’s known for sure is that Steven Spielberg (who directed the first two) will not be returning to direct, although he is still one of the franchise’s executive producers.
