Spielberg announces plans for 'Jurassic Park 4'

jurassic-park-dino.jpgNearly 20 years after his CGI dinosaurs first rumbled across the screen, Steven Spielberg told the gathered masses at Comic-Con that a fourth "Jurassic Park" is in the works.

While at the San Diego convention promoting his upcoming film "The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn," the legendary director announced the dino-flick should be ready in "two or three years."

"We have a story," Spielberg says. "We have a writer who is writing the treatment and hopefully we are going to make 'Jurassic Park 4 ' in all of our foreseeable futures."

The "Jurassic Park" series has grossed nearly $2 billion worldwide since it began in 1993. However, the box office take for each successive film saw a significant drop in interest, with sales declining from $915 million to $618 million and then to just $386 million for Jurassic Park III.

So this leaves us wondering, will JP:4 claw its way back or is the series a fossil best left untouched?
