When a proposed flick is beset with this many delays, it's typically not a good sign. The REAL question is this: Is there really enough of an interest from fans to even justify making it?

If they reboot it, I want it true to the source material. The velociraptor should be dopey looking, small, and covered with feathers.

There's no need for a reboot.  The original movie holds up very very well.
 
2013-05-22 03:01:42 AM
Movies about dinosaurs are probably the single BEST reason to do reboots in all of Hollywood. We're continuing to learn more every year, some of which has made what we saw in the original clearly very wrong, and it appears dated now. Since the dinos were the stars, reboot the hell out of it.

No, they are going to clone dinosaurs and suddenly a human sequence is found the mosquito blood.

The DNA sequence of Jesus. And they clone him as well.

I figure they will do to Jurassic Park 4 what they did to Star Wars, more light sabers! Everyone has a light saber! Some people carry 4 of them at a time! And for Jurassic Park they will replace all the different varieties of dino's with the Velocoraptors. More Velocoraptors! They're all Velocoraptors!

You don't even have to do a "reboot", per se.

In both the books and the movies, the dinosaurs were largely engineered.  So you know the geneticists tinkered with the DNA to get them to look 'right'.   As our understanding of dinosaurs gets more detailed due to ongoing paleontological research, they'd be able to make more accurate versions.  Theoretically, with enough DNA samples from a single species, you could fill in all the gaps that they normally used frog DNA to fill in, but I would only expect that to happen with very, very common herbivore species.

It doesn't have to be a complete, start-from-scratch-like-nothing-happened-before reboot, it could be something along the lines of a competitor like the people Dodgson was working for actually managing to do the work.

This could work if it's not just a straight remake -- the same basic plot: things go awry during the soft opening of a dinosaur wildlife park. Keep the plot device of cloning dinosaurs, but come up with a new story involving that. (Ok, I suppose it has to be related to a dinosaur wildlife park).

A reboot, Spielberg?

Your scriptwriters were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they  should.

I hope evolved dinosaurs from the future find some human DNA, clone up some humans and eat them. What a twist eh?

I had a crush on the girl, IIRC. I think I must have been about 14 when that movie came out.

Meh. I was pretty easy to please then. In all seriousness, though, it seems she has become one hell of a painter.

You dont HAVE to watch it.  You can choose, not to give them your money.  They cant just take it from you, you actually have to show up at the theater and give it to them.  Just, say no more.  And stop this cycle.  Walk away, do something else, anything, anything else.  Walk away and you can look yourself in the mirror again without shame or that rape smell comming from your ass.  I'm begging you, stop the cycle.

You know, as much as I loathe reboots in general, I think I'll take a JP reboot over that damnable human-velociraptor hybrid concept.

Ok, I agree that looks stupid for a JP movie. However, it looks like a farking badass idea for a video game. Turok: Breed

If it's a straight-up reboot, then just for fun they should hire as many of the original actors as possible, but put them in different roles.

Hire Sam Neill to play the Richard Attenborough role.
Hire the actors who played the two kids to play the Sam Neill and Laura Dern roles.
And hire Samuel L. Jackson to be the lawyer who gets eaten by a dinosaur while sitting on the toilet. Maybe he can give a version of that monologue from Deep Blue Sea right before it happens.

Just hurry up and either make this film or cancel it. Im sure the tour guides at Universal are tired of saying "And this is where Jurassic Park IV is scheduled to begin shooting this year..." which theyve been saying for a decade now.
 
2013-05-22 11:07:22 AM
I'd be up for a semi-reboot. A plot that takes the original, and spices it up with a crazy billionaire (Not the kind grandfather we saw in the 1st one), who believes that Hammond "just didn't get it right," and comes up with a new park, with new dinosaurs.

Given that the dinosaur DNA in the first movie was 'repaired' using frog DNA, they have an out for changing the design of the dinosaurs. Turns out frog DNA makes crappy dinosaurs. When they do it 'right,' the dinosaurs turn out better.
