Joe Johnston. That name probably doesn’t jog any memories, does it? Remember that film with Sam Neil? Third in a series? Took place on an island that was crawling with dinos? Time’s up. The answer we were looking for was Jurassic Park 3. Jurassic. Park. 3. Thanks for playing.
Johnston has also worked on other movies such as: Batteries Not Included, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, The Rocketeer, The Page Master, Jumanji, and October Sky. Now it looks as if Marvel has signed him for The First Avenger: Captain America.
I have never seen October Sky, but all of the others (JP3 excluded) were spectacular. Perhaps Johnston can pull off what the 1990’s Captain America movie couldn’t do, and be amazing. Although, the 90’s version was so bad…it was good.
