Way back at Comic Con in 2011, Steven Spielberg revealed that there were plans for a fourth ‘Jurassic Park’ movie. Since then, the legendary director shifted his focus and tried to bring dinosaurs to the small screen on Fox with ‘Terra Nova’. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out, but now it appears that ‘Jurassic Park 4’ is back on the radar.
According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has set a release date for the next installment of the dinosaur franchise. ‘Jurassic Park 4’, which will be shot and released in 3D, has been scheduled to hit theaters on June 13, 2014.
Based on a script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver of ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’, the film is currently on the look out for a director. Back in 2011, ‘Jurassic Park 3’ director Joe Johnston was said to be in talks for the fourth film to potentially start a new trilogy, but it’s unclear if his name is still on the table. As for Spielberg, who directed the first two films, he’s only attached in a producing capacity so far. Word is that he’s busy retooling ‘Robopocalypse’, but one shouldn’t rule him out entirely just yet.
This news comes months after it was announced that the original ‘Jurassic Park’ would be remastered and rereleased in 3D later this year in celebration of the film’s 20-year anniversary on April 5, 2013.
