Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

I suppose if the story were really well-executed, it could work. But the concept itself feels pretty played out by now.

Oh c'mon! It's dinosaurs! And they have been very well done in the past, so I'm in!

I must say, though, that the title Jurassic World makes me think of Wayne's World. "Jurassic World! DI-nosaurs! EXcellent!"

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

I like the idea of Jurassic World being about to genie being out of the bottle. The dinosaurs can no longer be contained on islands. They are on the mainland. Humanity better get used to it.

I remeber reading that one JP4 script did have human/dino hybrid monsters. I think there was even some concept art about it. I am glad that never saw the light of day.
That idea sounds better suited to a SyFy cable movie. "Coming up next on SyFy: Humanosaurus!"

And what would the story be? How can the characters overcome and achieve anything? Like a) catching all dinosaurs, b) terminating all dinosaurs or c) escape from the planet.


Jurassic Park 4 is a doomed concept, I'm certain of that. It has all the traits of films that bombed and sucked. They don't have an inspired idea for a story, but they want another film. This kind of motivation has never resulted in a good film. I have read so much about shitty story ideas. Like some madman trying to combine human and dinosaur DNA. Another story was about someone using dinosaurs as distraction for a bank robbery. Now it's something like "Dinosaurs all over the world!" but what story is that?

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

The one way I think the idea could work is if you jumped forward in time 30 or 40 years and made it more of a post-apocalyptic movie, where the dinosaurs have completely taken over the planet again and humanity is now desperately trying to survive these things.

I'd rather see that than something where it's just a bunch of dinosaurs attacking our modern day world again (stomping through suburban neighborhoods, chomping on clueless beachgoers, etc).

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

^Interesting idea, but it hardly sounds like something that should fall under the Jurassic Park franchise unless they're just hoping to lure people in.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

Well, just going by the previous films, there are already raptors loose somewhere around San Diego (the T-Rex couldn't have taken out the crew of the InGen ship in The Lost World) --though that ball was totally dropped by Spielberg-- and pterosaurs flying toward Central America while a hundred armed Marines just smile at them from machine gun equipped helicopters at the end of JPIII for some reason.

InGen would have to be broken as a corporation by this point after so many blunders, but there's still that rival company that was hinted at in the original Jurassic Park (the guys Nedry was planning on delivering the dino embryos to). I could see them setting up a dino smuggling operation and bringing the dinosaurs back to their lab(s) on the mainland around the world, where some of them are able to escape, either on their own or more likely with the help of idiots like Vince Vaughn's character. That way you could introduce a more varied mix of escaped dinosaurs than just raptors and pterosaurs if you want, which could get boring.

I could see the military bringing in people like Grant, Sattler, Malcolm, Harding, etc. as experts on dinosaur behavior so they can hunt them down and capture or kill (last resort with the scientists around, probably) them with special forces teams. Sort of like a fast reaction force to reports of dinosaurs on the loose. The kids from the previous movies could even get in on the action now that they're all adults (Joe Mazzello has a pretty prolific acting career going now).

I think one of the script writers is from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. So there is a chance that the 4th one is about the world being over taken, then have a sequel where we lose and the last one is when the dinosaurs retake the planet.

The plan for the first h4th movie was going to be some company found the shaving creme can and started cloning weird dinosaur hybrids and such. Even though the shaving can would have long gone bad. Then the guy from Bones would be a power ranger training some dino-human-dog hybrids to kill the dinosaurs and terrorists or something dumb.

Here is the concept art of the canceled movie...

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

I believe one of the idea was at the beginning of the film there would be a baseball game. Typical midwest little league game

Then Dinosaurs start running around the baseball field.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

I like the idea of jumping ahead a few decades, but not into a post-Apocalyptic world; rather into a post-post-Apocalyptic world where Humans have made peace with the return of dinosaurs. The dinosaurs could be domesticated and trained to take the place of lost technology. For example, the main character could have a job in a quarry that uses trained sauropods as cranes.

I wanna benefit the doubt, but gotta admit your thinking is entirely sound. Can we get a faithful adaptation of Doyle's The Lost World, already?!
