JURASSIC PARK IV DRAFT READY
Producer Kathleen Kennedy tells Sci Fi Wire that novelist William Monahan has completed a first draft of the script for Jurassic Park IV. Kennedy said that the third sequel will move off the islands of the first three films.
'Let's just say it takes place someplace else,' she said in an interview. 'It will not be green. We will not go back to the jungle.'
Monahan makes his screenwriting debut on the upcoming Ridley Scott film Tripoli, which is what attracted Kennedy to the writer. '[Tripoli is a] very different genre than what we're talking about doing with Jurassic, which is why I'm excited about Jurassic, because I think he'll bring something to it that's going to make it feel fresh.'
The site goes on to say that no director has been approached yet and that Kennedy and Steven Spielberg will likely act as producers, with plans for a 2005 release.
