Actually, it wasn't. Rossio and Elliott wrote the first to be a stand alone film, but its runaway success prompted the "trilogy". From what I understand, a lot of the second and third films' script wasn't even completed before they began shooting.
This may become like Star Wars and go to six if it keeps printing money like it has. Of course, the Star Wars films were always meant to be more than a trilogy.
