According to Variety, “Jurassic Park 3” director Joe Johnston is set to return to the cockpit for “Jurassic Park 4”.
The film, based on a script by William Monahan (“The Departed”), is rumoured to fix on the character of Lexie (played by Ariana Richards in the first film) and her grandfather, Dr.Hammond (Sir Richard Attenborough).
The news was mentioned in an article in which George Lucas confirmed that Lucasfilm are getting out of the film business – though first, they’ve got an “Indiana Jones” sequel and a film about to do – and are concentrating on TV instead.
Lucas, who is working on a “Star Wars” TV series, said: “We don't want to make movies. We're about to get into television. As far as Lucasfilm is concerned, we've moved away from the feature film thing, because it's too expensive and it's too risky. I think the secret to the future is quantity. Because that's where it's going to end up."
