Producer Kathleen Kennedy On Jurassic Park 4
Seems that while Universal is keen on seeing a Jurassic Park 4 as soon as possible, the production team at Dreamworks is resisting any pressure to rush the thing into production.
Speaking to Coming Soon, Dreamworks producer Kathleen Kennedy said that at the moment the scribes are just, “Writing, writing, writing… It’s really hard to keep these things going when there’s an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going. As filmmakers, we often sit there going, ‘Okay. We have to answer the question, Why do another one?’ If you can’t answer that question, you shouldn’t be doing it. It’s tough. We’re trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn’t going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We’ve got to start with a script and the story.”
Strange, really, that they’re putting in so much effort considering they seemed to come up with the story for Jurassic Park 3 over a meeting at the water cooler.
Back in June it was revealed that Rise Of The Planets Of The Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were working on the latest draft of the Jurassic Park 4 script.
