A couple of weeks ago we had Ariana Richards, Lexi from “Jurassic Park”, on the Hole Cast for the release of the dino-hit’s Blu-ray premiere. Though she hadn’t heard anything beyond the internet rumours, Richards naturally expressed interest in reprising her role as the computer-savvy youngster – the role that made her acting career – in the long-rumoured “Jurassic Park 4″.
Today, in an interview with HeyUGuys, Richards’ “Jurassic Park” co-star Joseph Mazzello said he too wants in on the inevitable sequel. Mazello, who has been shooting “G.I Joe 2: Retaliation”, even went one step further – he’s told Steven Spielberg to put him in the film.
I know they are writing it and it’s been developed right now. The last time I saw Steven was at the Emmys and I put the bug in his ear, I have no shame in that! I said, ‘Hey, let me know when you’re doing Jurassic Park 4, ok?’ If it came around and I was a part of it that would be an absolute thrill. I think it would be a great idea to have Tim grown up and see how that would affect things. We’ll see, you never know. If it happens it’ll be the greatest thrill of my life.
Mark Protosevich (“I Am Legend,” “Thor”) is currently writing the screenplay for the fourth film, with “Jurassic Park 3″ helmer Joe Johnston strongly rumoured to be retaining the directing reigns on the new film.
“It’s nothing like the first three,” Johnston told The New Zealand Herald. “It sort of takes the franchise off in a completely different direction, which is the only way I would want to get involved.”
Scientist Jack Horner, whose research is funded by such parties as Universal and George Lucas, is already hard at work on the sciency side of the film.
The dino-man tells The Herald-Sun what palaeontologists know about dinosaurs has dramatically changed since he first teamed up with Spielberg in 1993.
“We’ve learned that dinosaurs were colourful, we’ve learned that dinosaurs were feathered. We’ve learned a lot about dinosaur behaviours, we’ve learned there’s a difference in how juveniles look and adults look… Jurassic Park 4 will look very different than Jurassic Park 3.
“We find a dinosaur, a new species of dinosaur, on average every seven weeks. I think recently it’s been probably like every five weeks. I found one last week.”
Steven Spielberg, meanwhile, tells Empire magazine that he hopes “Jurassic Park 4″ will be ”out in the next couple of years”:.
