Thanks to a recent update from Spielberg’s longtime producing partner Kathleen Kennedy we have confirmation that Jurassic Park 4 will begin shooting very soon. The story is currently being written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) but it will not be produced by Steven Speilberg but he did confirm that he will be heavily involved in helping with some of the directing. Sources went on to reveal that they’re aiming for a summer release and will be a sequel not a reboot. Casting for the movie has not yet been announced but the directors are now taking application from both union and non union actors to play in the new Jurassic Park 4 film. This is a great opportunity for anyone that is looking to break into the acting industry.
On the technical side of things, Jurassic Park 4 does stand to benefit from the vast improvements in digital effects technology over the past decade since JP3 was released; not to mention, there’s a good chance the film could be shot in 3D – and, let’s be honest, seeing Velociraptors or the Tyrannosaurus Rex in three dimensions could be pretty cool. The plan is to start off Jurassic Park 4 with brand new characters and wipe the slate clean from the previous characters.
Casting for Jurassic Park 4 has not yet started but the producers are now taking applications from both union and non union actors to play extras and other roles in the film.
