Remake Jurassic Park and The Lost World (with Spielberg as Producer)

Somebody started a campaign that could actually be successful, but we need more people to participate.

We must send letters to Universal (or e-mail the studio) and explain this brilliant idea:

If Universal is afraid to remake the JP movies (because of the Spielberg-fanboys who are so biased towards the original movie) then we have to convince Universal to GET SPIELBERG TO BE THE PRODUCER OF THE REMAKES. It might be the only way to convince the public that this project will be taken seriously.

"In Steve We Trust"

The posters for the remakes could even say: "STEVEN SPIELBERG PRESENTS" above the title, just like other movies he was only the producer of.

P.S.
If you don't like the term "remake," then just think of it as a "reboot" instead...because our motivation is more about the books than it is about Spielberg's films.

  • @Faceslasher said: Those people can't be true fans, why should we remake it? All the original actors won't be the same, leave JP alone. Look at what George Lucas did to Star Wars, all the remakes screwed up. Steven is too old to remake JP.


    Wait... Why are we comparing Star Wars to Jurassic Park. If you want to compare it to anything compare it to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Was it based on a book? yes. Did it resemble the book? Somewhat, but ultimately not at all. Was there a remake? yes. Did it resemble the book? yes, extremely so. It's not that we want to remake the movie. We just want a movie based on the books. Completely different concept. There are lots of movies that need to be remade (Eragon), but Jurassic Park will be a classic and it doesn't necessarily need to be, but it would be interesting if it was with the right direction in mind.

  • Guys, this whole thing is a moot point. The next Jurassic Park is going to be Jurassic Park IV, not a remake.

    Plus, I honestly don't want the Hammond from the books portrayed on-screen. He was a jerk. Even started cussing out his grandkids near the end.

  • In all honesty this is one of the worst ideas I have heard in a very long time. More remakes is the last thing that Hollywood needs. All we get now are sequels and remakes, especially during the summer months. This is one of the classic series in Hollywood. Asking for a remake for Jurassic park is like asking for a remake on Star Wars or Back to the Future. Some film series deserve to be left alone.

    I for one am not worried about it as I know this is never going to happen, at least not for the next 20-30 years.

    Just a terrible idea. Jurassic Park IV would be a possibility and a far better one at that.

  • @Woodsyblue said: It's not exactly like people have cherished the changes Lucas made/makes to Star Wars. He's gotten away with it because he owns it and he can do what he likes with it, as unfortunate and unjust as that is.



    Unfortunate is one thing as that all comes down to subjective opinion but unjust? Its his work. If he wants to make changes to his films than that is his right. Some people act like they have a right to say what takes place with those films and no offense but that is nothing short of absurd. I am a photographer and I own the rights to every picture I take and if i want to make changes to my pictures than that is my right. Its no different for George's Star Wars films. If he wants to make changes than that is his right, regardless of what opinion people may have for such changes.

    I actually prefer the original versions but I respect George even more for the stance he has taken in regards to his films. They are his films and he has the right to do whatever he wants to them, period.

    His stance is hypocritical. He gave a speech against altering films, and then he goes and does what he said was wrong.

    You can't base a movie on a book, not even Harry Potter was accurate to the book. Should we just remake every movie based on their books?

    Please, I know I wanna see CGI shots every minute, cheap dinosaur models, and mediocre acting like you, but JP isn't the best film to remake.

  • @Faceslasher said: You can't base a movie on a book, not even Harry Potter was accurate to the book. Should we just remake every movie based on their books?


    Actually, in all seriousness, I don't understand why film's aren't more closely adapted to their respective books. I don't see anything wrong with a film that's based on it's book, I actually support the idea. If it's done right it can turn out just as good as something that was an original idea.

    Harry Potter may not have been accurate, but it certainly set out to accomplish that task and you have to admit the first 2 movies were almost identical to the books. No, Jurassic Park just sticks out in my mind because there was almost no attempt to use the material from the book. They could have at least used the same dinosaurs that were featured in the novel for the park. The novel dinos were much better choices than a wad of random therapods.

  • Why would Jurassic Park need to be remade? It's only 20 years old. We need to kick this remake addiction. Ask me in another 30 years .. maybe 50. Even then, nothing promises it will be as good.

    I was open to a remake of the Day the Earth Stood Still, but it ended up being terrible.

    Even then, I think we should respect the story. add to the universe but it doesn't need a flashy new version. Heck JP4 is in the works and some people are already planning on rebooting. What a joke.

    Harry Potter's a decent adaptation. Eragon, on the other hand, was terrible.
