When we last heard about ‘Jurassic Park 4’, the film was placed on indefinite hiatus. The official reasoning behind it was so that the crew had “adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise”. However, rumor has it that some members of the crew not seeing eye to eye with the studio caused the delay. Regardless of the reasoning behind the hiatus, it seems like the production is back on track again.
According to the latest reports, the ball has started rolling on the next installment of Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur franchise once again when the studio recently scheduled it’s release for June 12, 2015. But that’s not the only change that ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ director Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming movie has gone through. It’s also received a new name: ‘Jurassic World’.
Previously, script information indicated that the story written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, which was extensively rewritten by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, took place in a new park similar to the one found in the original. That could be the main reason behind the name change, but it also looks a lot neater than ‘Jurassic Park 4’.
With a release date set, odds are that casting announcements are forthcoming shortly so that production can begin early next year to accommodate for the 2015 release date. But until that news comes around, what are your thoughts on the new name for the next ‘Jurassic Park’ movie? Does it seem to beckon comparisons to Disneyland and Disney World in anyone else’s minds? Let us know in the comments below.
