Kathleen Kennedy not returning for Jurassic Park 4

She’ll be focusing on Star Wars instead

Despite having done a lot of talking about Jurassic Park 4, it looks as though Kathleen Kennedy won’t be involved in the forthcoming resurrection of the dino-franchise, with Star Wars: Episode VII set to occupy all her time.

“Ms. Kennedy has moved on to Star Wars and will not be producing JP4,” confirmed Frank Marshall, Kennedy’s husband and producing partner. “She’s traded raptors for TIE Fighters.”

Steven Spielberg is still thought to be producing the project, while a director has yet to be found. Plot details are currently non-existent, although Kennedy was previously adamant that the story would have to be a worthwhile one.

“It's really hard to keep these things going when there's an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going,” said Kennedy. “As filmmakers, we often sit there going, ‘Okay. We have to answer the question, Why do another one?”

“If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't be doing it. It's tough. We're trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn't going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise.”
