Movies Chat is our new work-in-progress chat show hosted by Movies.com Managing Editor Erik Davis. Each month we'll release multiple episodes that feature 15-20 minute conversations with some of the web's most notable movie experts.
This morning we learned that once again Universal is attempting another Jurassic Park movie by hiring the writers behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes (Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver) to try to hammer out a script that satisfies Steven Spielberg. Can they successfully deliver a story worthy of the big screen, or will their version end up in development hell like previous scripts dating as far back as 2002?
Joining me to talk all about the right and wrong ways to continue the Jurassic Park franchise is Peter Hall, editor here at Movies.com and the biggest Jurassic Park fanboy I know.
