According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Steven Spielberg is exploring a re-launch of the Jurassic Park franchise, meeting twice with screenwriter Mark Protosevich to kick around ideas for a Jurassic Park 4.

Spielberg directed the first two Jurassic Park films (which grossed $915 million and $619 million, respectively) and was an executive producer on the third. He has met twice with Protosevich to discuss rebooting the franchise.

However, Universal Studios and Spielberg’s representatives “stress that no one has been engaged to write a script and that the discussions have been purely exploratory.”

The first film, which released in 1993, was adapted from Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel and greatly advanced CGI technology in achieving realistic-looking dinosaurs on the screen. With the rise of 3D in 21st century cinema, however, THR suggests that the reboot could achieve even more with updated technology.
