Joe Johnston Dishes on Possible New Jurassic Park Trilogy


Jurassic Park III and Wolfman director Joe Johnston has opened up a bit regarding the future of the Jurassic Park franchise and feels confident another installment is on the way. In fact, he already knows what it is about.

Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park IV,” the director told “And it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen.”

While news of Jurassic Park 4 coming to fruition eventually is not a huge surprise, how Johnson views the fourth film in the grand scheme of the series is unexpected.

It breaks away from the first three—it’s essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy,” he shared. “It’s going to be done in a completely different way. That’s pretty much all I can tell you.”

So a three-film arc is tentatively planned assuming the first film performs well. If they can get the dinos permanently off the island and come up with an engaging “fresh” story, which Johnson goes on to allude, then it should. No more helicopters and jungles, please.
