The screenwriting couple behind 2011's Rise of the Planet of The Apes have been commissioned to revamp dinosaur movie franchise Jurassic Park.

The news that Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are working on a fourth film comes a year after movie mogul Steven Spielberg, who directed the first Jurassic Park and its sequel, announced plans to make another movie.

Some observers think that tapping Jaffa and Silver is not a bad idea for a franchise that involves genetics, science and evolution.

The first three films have collectively grossed over $1.9 billion worldwide, but the franchise has been gathering dust since 2001.
