Over the past 40 years, Frank Marshall has cultivated one of the most impressive CV’s in all of cinema – an integral part of E.T, Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Gremlins and the Indiana Jones series – but one strand of entertainment he’s yet to enter is the live arena. With the arrival of the arena show Jurassic World Live that changes, and the cinema legend talked to Forbes about his new venture.
There aren’t many people in Hollywood with as much clout or experience as Marshall – he is one of the true kings of the industry. Aside from co-founding Amblin Entertainment with director-producer Steven Spielberg, and film producers Kathleen Kennedy in 1981, he’s also behind some of the greatest films of all time. Among them are the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones movies, Gremlins, The Goonies, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The list of his accomplishments goes on and on and on.
Unadjusted for inflation, his films, either as director, producer, or executive producer, have grossed over $5.98 billion at the domestic box office alone.
He’s also the producer of the latest entry in the Jurassic series of movies, Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It’s because of those movies that we’re talking. They’ve grossed $1.07 billion at the domestic box office, unadjusted.
Frank also gave an update on Jurassic World 3 and also Indiana Jones 5.
“With regards to the next Jurassic World movie, we are in full pre-production at Pinewood Studios in London, England. We plan to begin shooting in February of next year, so that is all very much in motion. As far as the fifth Indiana Jones movie goes, we’re still working on the script.”
