Fresh Jurassic Park 4 news

A new Jurassic Park trilogy? A fresh direction for the films? Or is Jurassic Park 4 still a pipe dream? JP3 director Joe Johnston has been offering his thoughts…

Published on Nov 9, 2009

Jurassic Park 4, then. It's the sequel that we'd pretty much written off, and even now, we wouldn't want to lay down too much cash in favour of it actually happening. After all, it's been the best part of a decade since we saw Jurassic Park III (which we've written in defence of here), and while there have been very sporadic smatterings of news since, there seems little inclination to pick up the cameras and get the dinosaurs moving again.

As he puts the finishing touches to next February's The Wolfman, Jurassic Park III director Joe Johnston has, however, been talking about another sequel. And he's told AintItCoolNews, "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. It sort of takes the franchise off in a completely different direction, which is the only way I would want to get involved."

Furthermore, he hints at a potential (although, again, we suspect unlikely) future trilogy. "Why would anybody go back to that island?" he says. "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'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."

It does seem that it's pretty much in Steven Spielberg's hands, and were he to say that it was going ahead, then chances are it would go ahead. But the mix of news over the past few years on the project has both suggested that the franchise is now dead, or that some of the original cast are coming back.

Hopefully this one will clear up soon, as this writer, at least, is mighty keen to sit through another Jurassic Park movie. And don't forget to check out the intriguing AinItCoolNews piece here.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
