Nearly 20 Years After The Original, ‘Jurassic Park 4’ Is Coming

Written by Michael Lambarde on Jul. 23, 2011

Over 18 years after the original Jurassic Park was released back in 1993 and then the third movie in the franchise 10 years ago in 2001, Steven Spielberg announced at Comic Con in San Diego that the fourth movie in the franchise will be coming out in two or three years. Spielberg directed the first two movies in the franchise before Joe Johnston directed the 2001 feature.

“We have a story,” Spielberg said in front of nearly 6000 fans. “We have a writer who is writing the treatment and hopefully we are going to make Jurassic Park 4 in all of our foreseeable futures, hopefully in the next two or three years.” Also confirmed is that the movie will be shot in 3-D. Spielberg confirmed the news while he was on the panel for the movie The Adventures of Tintin, which releases in December of this year. Spielberg was joined on stage by former The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, who is the producer for Tintin.

The original Jurassic Park in 1993 had a total worldwide gross of $915 million. To this day, it still rakes in the top 20 of the worldwide grossing films of all-time. The 1997 release, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, took a dip four years later with nearly $620 million, a drop of 32%. Jurassic Park III, as is the usual pattern for follow-up films, dropped to nearly $370 million, a drop of 40% from its predecessor and a drop of 60% from the original film.
