Spielberg Ponders 4th “Jurassic,” “Transformers”

Steven Spielberg has reportedly been meeting with screenwriter Mark Protosevich to kick around ideas for how to re-boot the “Jurassic Park” franchise says The Hollywood Reporter.

No one has been engaged to write a script and that the discussions have been purely exploratory, but Spielberg has met twice with Protosevich to talk about the project since their initial meeting a few years ago about the “Oldboy” remake Will Smith was to star in.

Meanwhile actor Tyrese Gibson says that with Michael Bay now bowing out of helming the “Transformers” franchise, guess who MIGHT be a potential replacement.

Gibson tells Movieweb that “There are no concepts, no direction, no nothing for Transfomers 4, because everyone has been so focused on Transformers: Dark of the Moon. But here is the safety net. Are you ready for this? Michael Bay decides to not come back for Transfomers 4. There is always Steven Spielberg! I am not saying that Steven Spielberg is for a fact going to direct Transfomers 4. But it is a beautiful safety net to know that one of the biggest, most respected directors in the world happens to be an executive producer on Transformers. He is someone who knows this world. And he could easily step in and direct Transfomers 4 if he decided to.”
