Really, I'm going to pull out and use the remake card, something that I'm not prone to want to use. I think a remake of the first movie is called for, possibly something darker and more in tone with the book. As much of a Spielbergian classic the original movie is it's, well, filled with that Spielberg shmaltzy kiddy/familyness to it.

Remake the first book with the darker tones present in it. I suppose also along those lines making the dinosaurs better match up with present-day beliefs on them.
Personally, I think a better direction would be a new story that is also a reboot. That way there they're not retreading old ground, and they're also not tied to the continuity of a franchise which hasn't been active for over a decade.

Seriously can't see what a 4th film could be about. Trapped on the island, again? Dinosaurs coming to the modern world, wreaking havoc, again?

True, but with advances in technology it's likely the dinosaurs in the new movie WILL be all-CGI. Or at least to a much greater degree.

And I've seen more than enough giant CG creatures by now that it's hard to get too excited about it anymore, sadly.

I bet they go with Andy Serkis in a mocap suit for the dinosaur effects, since they had great success with The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The original JP4 plot was that the US government created human / dog / dino hybrids so they can be trained to kill the dinosaurs that have made it to the mainland. Thankfully someone released the script and it was ripped apart by everyone on the internet and never made.

So I have high hope that it's better than that.

I read an article from I think November saying the plan was still to use mostly robots.

As much as I didn't care for Jurassic Park III (Sam Neill aside), I'm actually looking forward to this.

I would also like to see both Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill to return.
Sam Neill has said he would never ever in 65 million years ever make another JP movie unless the pilot is about T-Rexs stumping on every Walmart in the world.

The last part is not made up.
I'd be down with a movie about Dino-Walmarticide.

It'll be sad without Stan Winston. I wonder if they'll ditch robo-dinos completely for filming.

They aren't supposed to, but it wouldn't surprise me if they di so they could work on CGI dinosaurs while they film it, they don't have a lot of time to make the movie.

Either way I hope it's good.

Will any of the CGI dinosaurs have feathers?

FWIW: The CGI Raptors in JP3 had hints of feathers. (Cannot recall if the Spinosaurus or other dinosaurs we saw in the movie did or did not, but I suspect they did.)

Yes, the JP movies have been adding more and more feathers as the movies went on. When JP3 was made I think it was only thought raptors had a few feathers, but now they might have had a ton.
