I want nothing to do with a remake.
The original, current movie (and trilogy) follows the novel just fine. Sure, you can go through and nit-pick out important things that were left out, but that's always the way it is. The novel is 400 pages long. The screenplay for a 2-hour movie is 120 pages long. No adaptation is going to follow the novel exactly. Ever.
A reboot is not going to magically include every character, every important line of dialogue, and every key scene from the novel. It would, at best, represent the novel equally as much as the original film.
At worst, it would be an unnecessary and unoriginal moneygrab, forgettable in the shadow of the original (if it doesn't stain it).
Instead of rebooting the franchise, those parts of the novel that have not yet been adapted to the screen can be incorporated into sequels. Remember the little girl on the beach at the beginning of The Lost World movie? Or the T-rex using its tongue to find people hiding behind a waterfall? Or the river sequence in JP3? Or the whole bit with the aviary? These are all scenes that appeared in the first novel, and the first movie didn't have to be remade to bring these scenes to life; they were incorporated into the sequels.
Give me sequels. Give me all the sequels that you can find producers for. But there's no point in restarting from scratch when there is already a rich lineage to build upon in the current trilogy.
