Jurassic Park IV: Producer Kathleen Kennedy told SCI FI Wire that novelist William Monahan has completed a first draft of the script for a proposed fourth Jurassic Park movie:

"Let's just say it takes place someplace else," she said in an interview. "It will not be green. We will not go back to the jungle."

Monahan makes his screenwriting debut on the upcoming Ridley Scott film Tripoli, which is what attracted Kennedy to the writer. "[Tripoli is a] very different genre than what we're talking about doing with Jurassic, which is why I'm excited about Jurassic, because I think he'll bring something to it that's going to make it feel fresh."

No director has been approached or even discussed yet for the project.
