The Mystery of The Missing IMDb Page: Producers Scrapped Jurassic Park 4? Is there hope?

The following is from

Producers Scrap Jurassic Park 4
9 December 2008 8:13 AM, PST | From | See recent WENN news

Movie producers have ruled out a fourth Jurassic Park blockbuster - because the story died with author Michael Crichton.

The sci-fi writer passed away in November aged 66 after losing his battle against cancer.

And moviemakers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy have made no further progress with plans for another film in the franchise - because Crichton's death was "a sign" for them to walk away from the idea.

When asked by reporters from if there has been any development on a fourth Jurassic Park movie, Kennedy answered "No" before adding: "I don't know. 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."

Jurassic Park 4" is Dead
10 December 2008 2:40 PM, PST | From | See recent OhMyGore news

The rumors of "Jurassic Park 4" started with laughable cyborg robots with guns and then came word that it would get a 2009 start date shortly after. Sadly today comes news that "Jurassic Park 4" is very much dead. And no the rumors of cyborg dinosaurs were not true. They had planned a "Jurassic Park 4" but because of the death of Michael Crichton they have decided its likely not a good idea. In an interview with ComingSoon Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy revealed it was probably a better idea to leave the film franchise alone. What do you think? Another sequel? Or leave it alone? ...

Jurassic Park 4 Not So Dead
9 December 2008 4:07 PM, PST | From | See recent Cinema Blend news

Yesterday here producer Frank Marshall, one of the people in charge of getting the long rumored fourth Jurassic Park off the ground, spoke about the future of his dinos. He didn't see one. Marshall made it pretty clear that he didn't see any point in continuing to try and do another movie, and so we all ran out and sadly declared the Jp franchise dead. Not so fast. It seems that even though Marshall is no longer interested in making Jurassic Park 4, Universal Pictures still is. According to Hr, though Universal has decided not to renew it's production deal with Frank Marshall, they still have both he and his producing partner Kathleen Kennedy working on Jurassic Park 4 and Bourne 4 for them. This actually confirms something we heard from one of our sources last week, that Universal is getting involved and is keen to get another dino movie done.

Jeff's Been Filming "The Baster"

Jeff Goldblum was on the set of "The Baster" this afternoon (May 14) in New York City. Unfortunately, there weren't any pictures. ;)

There hasn't been too much news on Jeff lately, but I have noticed that - unlike previously - everyone seems to know who "Jeff Goldblum" is now. I don't have to explain... "You know, the tall guy in Jurassic Park... With the glasses?" And I am sure this has to do with his joining the cast of Law and Order. I am very glad he is really in the publics eye again. They were even playing Independence Day at the grocery store rental section yesterday. My congrats to Jeff.

IMDb Pitched JP4?

So, a few months ago Jurassic Park 4 was on IMDb with Laura Dern confirmed for a part. Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neil were only rumored. Today, I went to check it again and it's gone. The movie had been rumored for 2009 or 2010, but no plot or title had been confirmed. Now IMDb has removed the page.

Just wondering, does anyone have any news on this? I hope the rumors will pick up again and eventually amount to something. I miss Dr. Malcolm!

New York Post: Jeff Goldblum talks about working in New York

JEFF Goldblum, new detective on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," is thrilled to be working in New York.

"First of all, this production is such a well-organized, well-oiled machine. The script comes polished, in perfect shape, hits the design team on time, the sets then get done -- everything is slotted. Nothing's slipshod. They all know exactly what they're doing.

"They pamper me. I have a special trailer. They arrange foods I like. Sometimes they order in from The Pump for my brown rice, egg whites and chicken.

"So when I arrived, they'd already lined up apartments for me to see. And I picked a two-bedroom rental near Chelsea Piers, where we shoot. They even found me a nice cleaning lady who comes in once a week.

"I mean, where else but New York can you find the most diverse people in captivity? I even watched Ric Burns' 1999 PBS project 'New York: A Documentary Film.' It's a box set. Eight parts, including experts like Rudy Giuliani, Ed Koch, Mario Cuomo, who tell you all about New York City. You've got to see it."

Considering he lives in LA and I live here, I wasn't sure I needed lessons on the city but -- being forever kindly and gracious -- I kept my mouth shut.

Although written with its own individual personality, his character essentially is Chris Noth's role. "I didn't know Chris before, but he came to the set to wish me luck. Look, he's done this part a long time, and I'm a humble student of the genre. I was glad to meet him. I'm a fan."

FIRST LOOK: Goldblum's 'CSI'

After the season's over, Jeff is staying put. "I'm shooting 'The Baster' with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman right here. In fact, after this phone call I have to go over for their costume fitting. Then, 'Morning Glory' with Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams. That shoots here, too. So I have the apartment until the end of summer. I plan to continue spending as much time here as I can."

So he's all set except maybe for a lovely local type lady?

"I'm on my own at the moment. Right now my focus and passion is on this show."
