"Jurassic Park 4" To Shoot Next Year?

Manawaiopuna Falls, also known as "Jurassic Park Falls" in Hanapepe Valley, Kauai

According to the London Free Press, "Jurassic Park" producer Frank Marshall said that the script for JP4 has been finalized and should start production next year for a 2008 release.

Moviehole.net reported the rumor that Lexie, Sir Richard Attenborough's granddaughter from JP1, will be one of the main characters in the 4th go 'round. Apparently, Steven Spielberg approached Keira Knightley a few years ago about playing the role, but no new info has surfaced about casting.

All three JPs were filmed in Hawaii--largely on Kauai, but also on Oahu and Molokai. Wonder if we can be so lucky as to get the dinosaurs back next year...wonder what their appetite for tax incentives is... For that matter, wonder if Spielberg would want to bring his other hit franchise (Indiana Jones, also in development) back to Kauai for filming.

Steven, did you really mean it when you said (according to John Baxter's Steven Spielberg: The Unauthorized Biography) that you decided to shoot JP in Hawaii instead of Mexico or Costa Rica because you wanted to eat food that didn't give you dysentery and sleep in a comfortable hotel? Well, as you well know, we have clean, ono (delicious) food, and luxurious hotels down here. So, if you're reading, call us, k? That's 808-586-2570. I'll be waiting by the phone.
