Jurassic Park 4 Cancelled?

Frank Marshall has been out promoting The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and in doing so seems to be answering a lot of questions which have absolutely nothing to do with Benjamin Button. For instance Coming Soon asked him about the status of Jurassic Park 4.

Spielberg has been promising another Jurassic Park for years now, but it always seemed to be delayed by something. Now according Marshall, who was supposed to produce the fourth film, it’s not happening at all. Says Marshall, “You know, when Crichton passed away, I sorta felt maybe that's it. Maybe that's a sign that we don't mess with it.”

That’s not a good sign, when the guy in charge of making it isn’t particularly excited about getting it done. A fourth movie never made much sense anyway, particularly in light of the weirdness rumored to be in the script. Dinosaurs wielding guns? No thank you. Great as the Jurassic Park franchise has been, maybe we’re better off letting sleeping Raptors lie.
