Steven Spielberg has confirmed that work has started on a fourth Jurassic Park film.
The director announced that the long-awaited dinosaur sequel has a story and a writer during his first ever appearance at Comic-Con, reports Total Film.
The movie legend was in San Diego to pick up a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to cinema.
Spielberg commented: “Jurassic Park 4 has a story. We have a writer, and we’re hoping to make Jurassic Park 4 within the next two or three years.”
Spielberg directed the original adaptation of Michael Crichton‘s 1990 novel along with its sequel The Lost World, and was an executive producer on 2001’s Jurassic Park 3.
He is also due to launch a dinosaur-themed TV series on US network Fox in the autumn.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Spielberg had been “kicking around ideas” for a fourth instalment in the franchise with screenwriter Mark Protosevich.
