Listen i know that there have been a whole lot of rumors about JP4 but i was reading up on it and jp legacy.org stated that Joe Johnston would start jp 4 after his movie "Captain America," and i just saw previews for it in theatres so i hope JP4 willstart production. The reason i started this form was so i could know what your thought was about JP4 and maybe your thoughts about what u want it to be about:D

    [18.07.2006] Awalt: [...] Online, there’s been talk about Breck Eisner on ‘Jurassic Park IV.’
    Spielberg: That’s not true. Joe Johnston is standing by.
    Awalt: First dibs on it?
    Spielberg: First dibs on it, and Joe is my go-to ‘Jurassic’ guy now.
    Awalt: There’s been talk about Joe Johnston that says he took the negative flack about ‘Jurassic Park III,’ and said in public that any faults with the film are his faults. There was talk that you didn’t care for the film, but it was profitable, and I’ve never heard you badmouth it in public, and I doubt you would, but...
    Spielberg: Oh no, I don’t feel that way at all! I think the film is witty and clever, and I think Joe did an amazing job putting together those battles. And I think those battles Joe put together... I was jealous of the spinosaurus attack on the airplane! That scene where the spinosaurus attacks the airplane and the passengers inside the airplane was every bit as good as I thought the main road attack in ‘Jurassic Park’ was. So I’m a huge fan of Joe’s, and he’s the right guy to do the fourth one. [...]

    F**k if Steven considers Johnston as director for the fourth, then it´s doomed in my opinion. :eek:

    It would be good if the Rex would be the main dino of the fourth one, and not the spino. :p

  • @TheHandyking said: I hope Spielberg won´t allow Johnston to come back for a fourth movie. He ruined the third movie so much, that Spielberg shouldn´t even consider to choose him as the director for the fourth installment. The master himself should take care of his great franchise. And not such a dumb director like Johnston. :mad:

    You don't seem to understand how the film industry works. Johnston did a great job directing the third film.

  • @jpark_08 said: You don't seem to understand how the film industry works. Johnston did a great job directing the third film.

    Sure i do. But i don´t understand how you can say Johnston did a great job.

    Okay JP3 was a decent film. It had great scenes like Spinosaurus in the river. But it was far far away from JP and TLW.

    And what i meant wasn´t that Johnston is a bad director. It´s just that Jurassic Park isn´t really his thing.

    The problem is that "Jurassic Park 3" is a straight B-movie (a B-movie of high quality), but "Jurassic Park" isn't a B-movie franchise. It just never felt like "Jurassic Park".
    He proved he can do great action scenes, that Pteranodon scene was really good, so was the Spinosaur boat attack which was just too short. I would have nothing against Johnston directing a fourth one, as long as he doesn't have the intention to make a B-movie again.

    I agree with you Jurassic Park III shouldn´t be a B-movie. Jurassic Park III would so much better if they used more scenes from the second book.
    If Johnston would build scenes like the raptor chase on the motorcycle in TLW, then JP IV would be a fantastic film. ;)

  • I think Johnston is a fine director, there are several scenes in JP III which are top-notch: the airplane crash scene and the birdcage sequence come to mind. However, the film as a whole was disjointed IMO, scenes followed each other in whatever order which was the scriptwriter's fault. So were the super intelligent Raptors and the stalking Spino.

    Johnton should not have rejected the original JPIII script, because, from what I have heard, it had a coherent story. There also should have been a military vs. dinosaurs scenes and Joe set up the mercenaries so well with the big gun, yet they proved to be dino-fodder.

    So all in all, I think Joe Johntson could make a good JP movie if there is a good script.

    I know I probably sound like a retard but what was the original script for the 3rd movie?:confused:

  • @SeanJP said: I know I probably sound like a retard but what was the original script for the 3rd movie?:confused:

    I think it was something with Dr. Grant living on Sorna

  • @SeanJP said: I know I probably sound like a retard but what was the original script for the 3rd movie?:confused:

    I read somewhere that a previous version dealt with teenagers landing on the island for whatever reason. I think Johnston said that in an interview.

    I didn't like what they did with his character in this movie. Why isn't he together with Ellie Sattler anymore, why has he no kids? He was so grumpy at the beginning of the third, and the clearly visible Indiana Jones imitation was so unnecessary...

    Yeah that´s what i thought too. I mean at the end of JP1 he changed his opinion about kids. So it would be nice if in the 3rd he and Ellie would be a happy couple with kids.

    But i think i read somewhere, they consider for a fourth film that Ellie seperates from her husband and she and Alan get together. I don´t know if it´s true :confused:
