Jurassic Park 4 Hires Screenwriters

Kathleen KennedyRick Jaffa and Amanda Silver will write the Jurassic Park 4 script.

The duo - who were behind Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes - have been hired by Universal to pen the screenplay in the latest instalment of the dinosaur blockbuster.

Steven Spielberg - who helmed the first three movies in the franchise - has already ruled himself out of returning to direct the motion picture, but his production partner Kathleen Kennedy remains involved, and she has always stressed that the script will be the most important element of any potential sequel.

"A great script is what it's gonna take to get a fourth Jurassic Park. We have a very high bar for ourselves because we're just like the audience, we don't wanna make the movie if there's not a reason to make the movie. So we've kind of created the dilemma ourselves because it was never intended to be a franchise, so there's an argument to be made, 'Why are you doing a fourth Jurassic Park?' So we've gotta find a good reason for why we're doing a fourth Jurassic Park and we're in the midst of working on that right now," she said at the back end of last year.

There is no release date yet for Jurassic Park 4.

Jim Carrey Quits Dumb and Dumber Sequel

Jim CarreyJim Carrey has dropped out of the Dumb and Dumber sequel.

The comic actor had been due to join Jeff Daniels in the follow-up to the hit 1994 movie but has now left the project - which has been tentatively titled Dumb and Dumber To - supposedly due to a dispute with studios New Line and Warner Bros..

"I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer. After all, it's implied in the title," he said in a statement.

"Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project," a source said.

The movie had been scheduled to begin shooting in September and the future of the project is now said to be in doubt. Last summer Jim admitted he was keen to make a Dumb and Dumber sequel: "We're talking about maybe returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about. There's Bruce Almighty and we're talking about maybe another Dumb and Dumber."

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian has served Kris Humphries' ex-girlfriend with a subpoena.

The socialite's lawyers are keen to speak with Myla Sinanaj - who began dating the basketball player in January - to find out whether Kris said anything to her in relation to his claim that the 72-day marriage was fraud. Kim's lawyer is also said to want details of hundreds of text messages and emails between Myla and Kris.

According to gossip website TMZ, Kris initially hid the relationship because he was worried it would impact on the divorce case as he and his representatives felt him moving on just over two months after he and Kim split would make it appear he wasn't "devastated" by the reality TV star's decision to file for divorce despite his previous statements.

Myla's lawyer previously admitted his client would be prepared to help Kim in her divorce proceedings.

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian with Scott DisickKim Kardashian would undergo artificial insemination.

The 31-year-old reality star - who is currently dating rapper Kanye West - said if she's single by the time she turns 40, she would opt for IVF treatment in order to have a baby.

"If I'm 40 and not married, I would have a baby artificially inseminated. I would feel like Mary, like Jesus is my baby, you know?" Kim told Scott Disick - who is expecting his second child with Kim's sister Kourtney - speaking on her family's reality TV show.

The revelation came as the pair embarked on a wild night out on the latest episode of the popular show, after sister Kourtney insisted party-loving Scott go on a date night with socialite Kim. Scott, 29, was less than enthusiastic at first, moaning, "I love Kim, but she's the most boring person ever. Kim only stays out for an hour." Kim and Scott bonded over dinner and then hit online chatroom Chat Roulette, where Kim lifted up her top for the camera.
