Sorry for a lack of an update so long. I've been pretty busy offline
with getting ready for college and everything. Got some news about
JPIV. Oviraptor and several others have pointed that Aint-It-Cool
News has posted out what is a review for the Jurassic Park
IV script and let's just say I find the thing horrible and a disgrace
to our fandom. Click here to see it

JPMU Co-Webmaster, Oviraptor brings another new tid bit of
information about Jurassic Park IV today this one from Coming
anonymous source checked in with the following info:
I thought I'd just give you a quick update on the fourth installment
of 'Jurassic Park'.
First of all, for the fans worrying about it not making it for Summer
2005 - it won't. The plan now by the big execs is to release the
film Winter 2005 or Spring 2005. Between December-April. The script
is being rewritten by John Sayles, but is based on an earlier draft
by a man called William Monahan.
I can't tell you much about the plot, in fact, I really can't tell
you anything. You will be glad to hear a majority of the animals
will be marine reptiles.
Sam Neill is not returning for this movie, but Jeff Goldblum and
Richard Attenborough are. The rumours that scenes have already been
filmed are false. There is not even a director signed to the project
yet. However, I hear one may be a man by the name of Alex Proyas.
I think he made the Crow several years ago. He's still in discussion.
For some people the following news is very bad - the Spinosaurus
is back! I know a lot of people weren't fond of her, but she'll
be badder in this version. The raptors are also back, apparently.
Last thing - the Pinewood filming is true except that it is March
2005, not January. James Bond has booked most of the studios so
it won't be able to film until then. They also need time to build
a massive tank for the aquarium scenes.
every information pertaining to JPIV please take this as a rumor.

It appears yesterday's report was false. Look at the thread
here on our forums.
Sorry all for this awful trick that was pulled.
June 16th, 2004 Oviraptor pointed out this interview with the legendary Sam
Neill from CountingDown.Com.
The interview speaks of Jurassic Park IV and here is a snippit
16, 2004 — 'Jason' tells us:
Hi Fred Sam Neill was on the Australian 4BC radio breakfast show
this morning (June 16) to plug his new TV movie 'Stiff', which premieres
on the weekend. It was a fun interview, which delighted me no end
when the topic turned to Jurassic Park IV! -
John: What's up next for you, Sam? You're doing another Jurassic
Park, is that right?
Sam: Yeah. I couldn't say exactly when, though. They're still trying
to nail the right script, so I don't know. The premise is there,
it's just a matter of getting the script absolutely right, which
is very important.
John: Now there's been three of these movies already. I was surprised
they could even stretch it that far! What could possibly happen
in a fourth one?
Sam: Well, uh, all I can say is there's lots of nasty dinosaurs
in it, including me! (They all laugh)
Ross: Actually I read a report on the internet, when I was researching
for this interview with you, that said Jurassic Park IV was going
to feature dinosaurs being trained to, uh, carry military weapons,
like rocket launchers or something?
Sam: (chuckling) Wow, that's the first time I've heard that one!
Ross: It's not true? Phew! Looks like Hollywood isn't as desperate
as I thought! (laughs)
Sam: No, no. Don't worry. That's not the idea for the film. Not
at all. Not from what I've been told, anyway. I believe there's
alot of wacky stuff that one can read on the internet. Who knows
where it all comes from?
actually sort of a relief we won't see any military-trained dinosaurs.
That spares me from wanting to douse myself in battery acid upon seeing
the film. Thanks to Jason and Oviraptor for the information.

Today eleven years ago the movie, Jurassic Park,
touched our imaginations and minds. Without it we wouldn't have this
great site and great staff. Thank you to Michael Crichton for conceiving
the idea for the novel and thank you Steven Spielberg for turning
his vision into a wonderful movie.
June 10th, 2004
We've got a massive update for the site for the Dinosaur pages (Nublar,
Sorna, InGen Cloned List, and Notes). Basically we all put on our
technobabble hats and figured out the species name for every dinosaur
from the movies. Please when you read the lists make sure you cross-reference
with the notes page.
June 8th, 2004
According to a report from Dan's
JP3 Page the Jurassic Park 4 script is undergoing a massive
amount of rewrites. According to Jack Horner, The Dinosaur Consultant
of the films, the fourth movie in the series probably isn't going
to be in the 2005 release date plans anytime soon if this keeps going.
Got an update finally to the site. The Jurassic
Park 3 Story page has been updated. This finished up the plot
synopsis/cast sections of the site. Next we have plans to move to
galleries and also allow you, the visitor, to send in a submission
of a scene from the movie you want a screenshot taken of.

We're still alive here. We relatively have nothing new to report about.
Aside from the occassional rumor on JPIV, but there's hardly any of
those. I haven't been working on the site much because I have been
busy elsewhere in life. Thanks for sticking with us though. I'll be
modifying the site some more with our dinosaur gallery pics section
when I get a chance to sit on my butt for a few days and do it.

Finished uploading everything here to this server. Should be better,
but I am going to shut down the GeoCities account now. Look for a
notice to be placed on there if we lose this one.
Recently just added the Jurassic
Park 3 Musicial Queues section tonight. I'm already hard at work
on the Synopsis Section for all three movies now. After that I am
planning on doing the Dinosaur Gallery followed by movie photo gallery.
We're still here, so we didn't disappear here. :)
