Jurassic Park LogoJoe Johnston is currently prepping for the release of The Wolfman which is due out early next year. He was responsible for the direction in the 3rd Jurassic Park movie and AICN caught up with him to talk about his new movie but drifted onto talking about Jurassic Park 4.

“There is a great story for the fourth one that I would be interested in getting involved with and it’s nothing like the first three,” Johnston told the site, “It sort of takes the franchise off in a completely different direction, which is the only way I would want to get involved.”

He added that it likely won’t be another storyline about a group of people struggling to survive a dinosaur attack. “We’ve done that and it’s been done three times…”

From the sounds of it, they won’t be going back to the island again  “Why would anybody go back to that island?” Johnston said. “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.”

The fact that they’re even talking more about another Jurassic Park excites me as I’ve loved all three of them. The first was obviously by far the best but i’d be quite happy to see another movie if Spielberg is kind enough to bring us one.
