Dinosaurs are set to roam on the big screen once again with Hollywood planning to bring a second trilogy of the hit sci-fi franchise Jurassic Park.

The original 1993 film that won three Oscars, starring Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum, was a massive success, grossing USD 914 million worldwide and spawning two sequels, Box Office online reported.

Now, nine years after Jurassic Park III hit cinemas in 2001, Joe Johnston, who directed the third installment, admits a new movie is on the cards which will be closely followed by two more.

“There is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen. It breaks away from the first three — it’s essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It’s going to be done in a completely different way,” Johnston said.

“If you think of the first three as a trilogy, number four would be the beginning of a second trilogy. We just want to make them justified in their own right. We don’t want to make sequel after sequel just because there’s a market for it. We want to tell different, interesting stories,” he added.
