Dinosaurs didn't leave recordings of themselves lying around, so the sound designers on Jurassic Park had to do what anyone would -- use their dog.
The fourth Jurassic Park film has been stuck in development purgatory for what seems like forever, but producer Frank Marshall finally shed some light on the project in a recent interview with Collider. Marshall said fans can expect a summer release within two years, and he hopes to employ more animatronic and puppet dinosaurs than CGI, keeping in line with Steven Spielberg's original film. He also confirmed it is a sequel and not a reboot or remake.
The writing duo of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who teamed for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, recently signed on to write the screenplay.
Jurassic Park got a brief theatrical re-release and a Blu-ray box set last year, but Steven Spielberg has even bigger plans for the movie's 20th anniversary: Jurassic Park 3D is due to hit theaters on July 19th, 2013.
Universal has booted Tom Cruise's sci-fi flick Oblivion out of that prime summer slot, moving it up to April. Jurassic Park was originally released on June 11th, 1993, but the closest weekend to the movie's real 20th anniversary would put it up against Man of Steel, and Superman vs. dinosaurs hardly seems like a fair fight.
