What will it be about? We got two great directors once again. Spielberg and Johnson, and hopefully a better plot than most of JP 3 or dinosaur mercenaries!

  • Sorry, I know it's not really relevant but your name made me think; are we ever going to get an Evil Dead 4?! Bruce Campbell's no spring chicken anymore so I guess the clock's ticking but after watching Drag Me To Hell, I have faith that Sam Raimi could make it work.

    As for Jurassic Park IV, as I had no idea if there were even any plans for a forth movie, I just took a little time to read up on the details. It sounds a bit like it's stuck in production hell, it also seems to me that Joe Johnston is far keener on the idea than Steven Spielberg (a bit like Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray with Ghostbusters 3). Who knows though, I'm sure that the studio would be up for it; after all it's a license to print money.

  • Yep, Sam and Ivan Raimi are writing the script as we speak, I think Raimi may be doing that Warcraft movie first though. Jurassic Park IV, yeah, they want to do a second trilogy, hopefully equal to the first movie in terms of how good they will be, finally no matter what, Ghostbusters 3 is most likely coming out in December 2012 :D

  • @EvilDeadFan said: Ghostbusters 3 is most likely coming out in December 2012 :D

    I was listening to Bill Murray on the Howard Stern show the other day (Howard comes across as a real jerk in the interview) and I'd say that there is actually a higher probability of the world ending December 2012 then there is to be a Ghostbusters 3, that is to say zero possibility.

  • If they were to make more Jurassic Park movies I would want them to get a diffrent director. Not that I don't like Spielberg and Johnson. Spielberg is one of my favorite directors and Johnson crafted a great action adventure Jurassic Park film but I think that a new director is needed in order to take Jurassic Park into a new direction.

    I would want a new Jurassic Park film to go back to it's roots. There are still plently of story elements in the novels that were never used in the films. I'm surprised they used the story they did in JP3. There were other things they could have touched on from the novel (The DX virus, Dodgson going back for eggs, Levin wanting to study extinction, and many more) But instead they strayed even further from the novel and went off into full dino chases man mode.

    Speaking of dino chases man. We need less of that. Not that I want less dinosaurs. I just want less chase scenes and more suspense scenes like "Raptors in the Kitchen". The raptors in the kitchen scene was very well done and we need more suspensefull scenes like this in Jurassic Park.

    If I had to choose my dream director for a new Jurassic Park film that continues the series but brings it back to a more series and suspensfull tone I would choose either Christopher Nolan or Guillermo Del Toro.

    Where did you hear that?

    Raimi's next project is Oz: the Great and Powerful, scheduled for a 2013 release.

    Oz, The Great and Powerful (TBA)

    During Blizzcon 2010's Lore panel, Chris Metzen stated the creative team had recently met with Sam Raimi and, while the World of Warcraft movie was not next on Raimi's production schedule, it was still very much in development.

  • A quick search on google turned this up:

    @MovieWeb.com said: Director Sam Raimi announced in 2009 that he was working on a script with his brother Ivan for Evil Dead IV, the long awaited forth installment to the classic horror franchise. While both Sam Raimi and the franchise's star Bruce Campbell have since confirmed that the script is in the works there have been no new details lately about the status of the project. We recently had the opportunity to speak with actor Ted Raimi, who appeared in all three previous films and is of course Sam's brother, while he was attending the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, an event that recognizes excellence in global web television programming.

    We asked the actor point blank if he thought that Evil Dead IV would actually ever get made or if the film is just a pipe dream for fans? "Well it might happen ... but then again ... it might not happen," answered the actor. "You know, it's really Sam's project, it's not my project so I certainly don't want to speak for him but I hope it does go through," continued Raimi. "I know a lot of fans would really love to see it. So that's a big deal for them." Raimi also starred alongside his longtime friend and Army Of Darkness co-star, Bruce Campbell, in the 2006 film My Name Is Bruce, which featured Campbell as a version of him self that is hired to protect a small town from demons. Rumors have since been circulating about a sequel, which was first going to be called My Name Is Still Bruce but was later changed to Bruce Vs. Frankenstein. Raimi confirmed that he would in fact be involved with the project and we asked the actor if the title change meant that the film was no longer going to be a direct sequel to My Name Is Bruce? "Yes and no. I don't want to say it is My Name Is Bruce 2 but it is a movie with Bruce Campbell in it," replied Raimi. "Maybe, it might be," he continued cryptically. "Am I being very clear? No? Good I'm glad!"

    Evil Dead IV is in development.

  • I was not aware of the change, but we still should see Ghostbusters 3 within the next 2-4 years.

    Darn... No JP4. Thats a shame. Oh by the way i defently agree with the less Dino chasing scenes and more suspence scenes... I also would like to see more natural Dino scenes like in TLW. Even though nothing really happened, that scene where the Baby Rex was pinned down crying out gave my chills. It was great. I got NO chills in JP3 except when Rex showed up.
