What’s in the hopper?
It looks like Jurassic Park IV is moving ahead! After being in development hell for years Steven Spielberg announced last year that JP4 was going to be made. There really has not been much news about it until yesterday. It is being reported that writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have been hired to write the script for the next installment. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were the writers on last years very successful and well done reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was an intelligent and thrilling reintroduction of the Apes movies. I am hopeful that they can write a very good script. The original Jurassic Park is still a classic and after almost 20 years the special effects still hold together and are not dated. The sequel, The Lost World, was a bit of a let down. I will still watch it from time to time. JP3 was an improvement and a lot of fun. Not a lot to the story but it was a good action and adventure flick with great dinosaur action.
Director Paul Verhoeven is moving ahead with a movie about the life of Jesus. Scripted by Roger Avary (who wrote Pulp Fiction) this movie is aiming for controversy. In this movie Jesus will not have divine origins but will be the product of rape from a Roman soldier and it will focus on how Jesus’ politics are what lead him to his crucifixion.
