Jurassic Park 4 Hires Rise of the Planet of the Apes Writers

In the sometimes unreasonable, generally self-flagellating sport of hoping for movies to be good, Jurassic Park 4 stands alone. Now, over a decade after the silly 94-minute chase scene called Jurassic Park III, screenwriting duo Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) have been summoned to scribe the Spielberg-produced-but-not-directed dino jaunt, which has had its general story since last summer. Curious, hopefully non-alarming factoid: Silver and Jaffa's last work before 2011's Apes was 1997's The Relic.
