The director of “Jurassic Park 3”, funnily enough


So apparently Steven Spielberg is taking a year off to come up with a name for the next “Indiana Jones” movie – well, at least I’m sure he’ll use that as his next excuse as to why the film is taking so long – and that’s probably part of the reason why he won’t be directing “Jurassic Park 4”, as previously rumoured, as it’s gearing up to go soon.

According to the register-ringing series’ producer, Frank Marshall, “Jurassic Park 3” director Joe Johnston is being bought back to T-Rex territory. And based on what he tells MTV, it sounds like this could be out well before Indiana Jones gets back on the mine trolley.

“‘Jurassic Park 4’ is coming to life,” he proudly reported. “There’s a script, we’re getting a director and we’re going to get going probably toward the end of this year.

“Joe Johnston could be back. We want to get the script right before we go forward, which is exactly what’s [happening with what] your next question is going to be about, ‘Indy 4.'”

And so Frank, what’s the latest lame excuse on the Indy 4 delay?

“We’re getting the script right, we’re working on it. It’s not one of those things that’s on the back burner.” Grinning, Marshall added that he might try to get both films made by simply combining them. “Indiana Jones goes to the island,” he said. “Indy versus the raptors. Get him with that whip.”
