One of them is a clever girl.
I’m just now getting to this news, but before I go into some diatribe, here’s my thoughts: This film probably won’t get made, and I liked Jurasic Park 3 more than 2. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was far superior than I had hoped.
Details can be found here, but I think that this quote by SlashFilm poster Industrai sums it up the best:
I’ll tell you the problem with writing Jurassic Park IV: it didn’t require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done, and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you, you’ve patented it, and packaged it, you’ve slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you’re selling it. You want to sell it, well…
Your writers were so preoccupied with whether they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.
