Jurassic Park 3 Director Wants His Own Off-Island Dino Trilogy

Even though Hollywood producer Frank Marshall told us that another Jurassic Park was a long shot. That doesn't mean JP 3 director Joe Johnston is lacking a few ideas for his own off-island dinosaur trilogy.


AICN spoke with The Wolfman director Johnston and managed to wrangle out a few hypotheticals out of the Jurassic Park 3 director. After saying the only way he'd get involved would be to revamp the franchise and take it completely off of the island, he explained why.

"Why would anybody go back to that island? It was hard enough to figure out the second and third reason for them to go, but it would take it off in a whole other trilogy basically, but when it gets to that level it's sort of about studios and Steven [Spielberg's] thing and who knows. I think we are at that point where we are due for another one if we are going to do it."


Off the island is very tricky, as it didn't work so swimmingly with Jurassic Park: Lost World. Personally I kind of like this idea. [Thanks, Gitemstevedave]...

Or they could just write a wholly original dinosaur story — I'm not sure which one is less likely to happen.

How about a dino story where the kids aren't death and death caused by being stupid proof?

Those kids were the most annoying part of the 1st movie. #jurassicpark
