The History of "Jurassic Park III" and "Jurassic Park IV" files

posted by robotpo on - last edited - Viewed by 1.3K users
In case anyone is interested, just thought I'd post these files which collect the history of JP3 from announcement through release, and all of the rumors and tidbits about JP4 from 2001-2010. The first I made myself, and the second was created by someone named "Raptorbite" over at JP Toys.com, which I added to a bit. They're both long PDF files, but great trips down memory lane, (especially for those of us who were in the online JP community over a decade ago). Also, you get a sense of the original script and elements which were dropped from JP3, and a bit of what was planned for JP4. I've also included a third file which I made, that covers the myriad "abandoned projects" of the Jurassic Park franchise including animated TV series, toys, comics, a ride at Universal ETC. Anyhoo, here there are:

EDIT: And here's everything from Dan's TLW Page as well, (January-December 1997): http://www.mediafire.com/?959npqda87m6ep2

Apparently, Peter Stormare is playing Richard Levine, Arliss Howard is Doc Thorne, Vince Vaughn is Eddie Carr, Richard Schiff is Howard King, Thomas Duffy is George Basleton, and there will be color-changing Allosaurs opening and closing the movie! Oh, the naivety! :p

    If you took the time to read it, they were planning on having an Explorer Jurassic Park tour like the movie.

  • No problem! ;) Hopefully one day the JP4 story will be completed...
  • Jp4 better not be about dino commandos or i would rage like no one has ever seen anyone rage before.... you would be able to see it from where your sitting lol

    I agree with Ian Malcolm maybe they(Universal) should stop to think if they should.

    I mean I am not sure I want a fourth movie and I read another comment in here saying it will be good if Spielberg directs it.... cough!! kingdom of the crystal skull cough cough !!!!

    Story also written by David Koepp (writer of the JP screenplay)

    And it's been way too long I rather see a continuation of the JP franchise in either a book form, A BETTER COMIC, or something else but not a movie.
  • Just added TLW as well in the OP...
