Jurassic Park producer Kathleen Kennedy has revealed that, while they had wanted to have a Jurassic Park 4 script in place by now, work on it will actually begin this year. Kathleen has worked with Steven Spielberg on a number of projects and has admitted that she and Steven were both hoping to have a screenplay written and ready to go by now.
Kennedy explained, “Well we haven’t started the script yet. It’s been knocked around, but I always think there’s a big difference between just talk and actual work. So we haven’t had a screenwriter on Jurassic, and we haven’t been working on a script. So until we do that, which is probably going to start up now. We really, really hoped, and Steven really, really tried, to bring somebody on before we started Lincoln, so that a script could be written by the time we finished Lincoln.”
She added, “That’s how we usually like to work, but we just didn’t get to a point where we had a story that we thought was really right, so we’re not going to be really starting on that until now.” Steven Spielberg has spoken about Jurassic Park 4 on a number of occasions and there has even been mention of it being made in 3D.
