JURASSIC PARK 4 May Be A "Big Reboot" According To Original Star Sam Neill

Sam Neill, who starred as Dr. Alan Grant in the first and third Jurassic Park films, briefly comments on the recently delayed fourth installment. He says that he'll unlikely return, partly because he thinks it will be more of a reboot.



A couple weeks ago, Universal postponed Jurassic Park 4 indefinitely. Originally slated for a June 13th, 2014 release, the latest draft for the fourth installment in the long-running dinosaur franchise was apparently "too epic and ambitious" to have out by that date. Filming was originally set to begin next month, but without a ready script and a locked cast, it would be impossible to have it out next summer without being rushed.

While we wait for the next official announcement, actor Sam Neill - best known for playing Doctor Alan Grant in 1993's Jurassic Park and 2001's Jurassic Park III - told Stuff.co.nz that he will unlikely reprise the role for Jurassic Park 4. He doesn't detail why, but hints at the reason in a brief comment. "I'm told it's a big reboot, a total re-jig." Producer Frank Marshall said last year that the film will not be a reboot, but a sequel (as expected). However, with Universal delaying the project indefinitely, could it be retooled as a reboot? No details on the film's characters have been confirmed, but Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3) and David Oyelowo (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) were reportedly in consideration for roles. Would you rather see another Jurassic Park sequel or a completely revamped take on the iconic franchise?

Jurassic Park 4 will be directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), and is currently rewriting the script with Derrick Connelly. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) wrote the prior draft.
