'Jurassic Park 4' Director Goes to...Colin Trevorrow?Nick Romano |
'Jurassic Park 4' was given a summer 2014 release date by Universal a while back, but for a while no director was attached, which gave us all cause for concern. Now the wait is over, and if you were hoping for Steven Spielberg to return to helm one of his babies, you'll be disappointed because the job goes to Colin Trevorrow.
The man whose first feature-length directorial credit was the Sundance hit 'Safety Not Guaranteed' has been chosen to direct 'Jurassic Park 4.' Kind of a major leap, don't you think? Deadline reports that he met with Universal and filmmakers, who were both impressed by his passion for the world of 'Jurassic Park' and felt he'd protect the characters from the story, being that Trevorrow himself grew up a fan of the movie trilogy.
The 'Jurassic Park 4' script was written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver from 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' while Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley are set to produce, and Spielberg himself will executive produce. So that at least should calm some of the fans' concerns.
'Jurassic Park 4' is currently set to hit theaters June 13, 2014, and recently rumors were swirling that Universal booked studio time between the months of April and November to kick off production. Though it's now even more apparent that things are moving along more quickly than they originally seemed. Now let's fill in that cast.
So what do you think? Do you have faith in Colin Trevorrow to take care of 'Jurassic Park 4'? Who would you like to see star? Sound off in the comments.
