Joe Johnston News!!!

on Sunday, July 17, 2011

"Captain America: The First Avenger" director, Joe Johnston has been all over the movie news sites right now because of two things, discussing "Jurassic Park IV" and the fact that he wants George Lucas to do a "Star Wars" spin-off film, featuring Boba Fett aka The Bounty Hunter in the title role......ROCK-ON!!!
First I'll start off with "Jurassic Park IV" news. Johnston has let slip some info on the long-awaited fourth "Jurassic Park" film. This is what he's says about his upcoming dinosaur sequel and his plans for a brand-new trilogy, 
"We are in discussions about 'Jurassic Park 4.' The most important thing I can tell you is that it starts a new trilogy that will go off in a different direction — a completely different direction that is very exciting, and different from anything we’ve seen. It starts with the history of the first trilogy, but it spins it off in a completely different direction. That’s all I can tell you."
So does he plan for the new trilogy to be prequels, like the second "Star Wars" trilogy? I'm asking this because he says, "It starts with the history of the first trilogy,". That must mean either the fourth film will be a prequel or the whole second trilogy will be.
And now onto the "Star Wars" Bounty Hunter spin-off news! Johnston has mentioned that he wants "Star Wars" God, George Lucas, to make a BIG screen live-action spin-off film of "Star Wars, featuring Boba Fett aka The Bounty Hunter. Would be pretty AWESOME!!!
This is what he said, "I’m trying to get George [Lucas] to make a feature based on Boba Fett.” Give The Fett his own film Lucas. If he doesn't do it, Johnston will beg for the rights to do it himself!!!
