article imageSpielberg in talks about 'Jurassic Park 4'

It’s been almost a decade since the last installment of the blockbuster trilogy hit theatres, but Steven Spielberg may be considering once again reviving the dinosaurs of "Jurassic Park" on the big screen.
The Academy Award-winning director is in early meetings with screenwriter Mark Protosevich to discuss the possibility of a fourth film, as seen in The Hollywood Reporter.
To date, the existing three movies—1993’s “Jurassic Park,” 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” and 2001’s “Jurassic Park III”—which explore the resurrection of dinosaurs through genetic engineering, have grossed close to $2-billion in total, IMDb states.
Actor Sam Neill, who starred in the first and third installments as paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant, will most likely not be reprising his role, as he told MTV News in May that a fourth film would be unlikely without its key creators.
“I think we’ve told the story. I think it’s done,” he said. “Stan Winston, who made those beautiful dinosaurs died. So no, no Stan, no Jurassic Park, . . . [and author Michael] Crichton died too.”
Oscar-winning effects expert Stan Winston, the man behind the animatronics developed for all three pictures, passed away in June 2008. Author of the series, Michael Crichton, who wrote Jurassic Park in 1990, followed by The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1995, died in Nov. of the same year.
Both Spielberg and Universal Studios reps confirm that the director has met twice with Protosevich, and as of yet, no scriptwriters are attached to the project, ABC news reported.
