The last we heard from 'Jurassic Park 4' was that Universal had scuttled the previous June, 2014 release date, reportedly for script and turnaround issues. However, those who were afraid that the project was completely sunk have a reason to be excited again: 'Jurassic Park 4' appears to be officially back on track for a 2015 release.
We all recall when, not too long ago, Universal put their upcoming Colin Trevorrow-directed 'Jurassic Park 4' on hold? Well, we might (keyword here is *might*) have a better idea as to why. Despite a past statement from the producer, rumor has it that this next installment will be a big-time reboot, but is there any truth here?
By now you've heard the news: 'Jurassic Park 4' has been put on hold by Universal Pictures so that they'll have "adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment." (Read: "Guess we shouldn't have rushed it"!) So how does this affect your opinion of the sequel?
Just as recently as last week we had fresh 'Jurassic Park 4' updates from director Colin Trevorrow who tweeted from the location scout that the upcoming sequel would return to the original Jurassic Park. But things move fast in Hollywood and just a few days later comes word that 'Jurassic Park 4' has been shut down and may not be happening at all any time soon.
'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.
Though we haven't heard any details about casting or who's directing the film, 'Jurassic Park 4's release date is looming with a supposed June 13, 2014 theatrical bid. Will they be able to make the date? It's quite possible that everything is coming together quickly and quietly as word is that Universal has set aside a shooting location for the months ahead.
With Steven Spielberg's 'Robopocalypse' put on temporary hold, perhaps Universal saw a hole in the 2014 schedule, or perhaps they're just ready to make more dinosaur movies. We say that because -- even though there's no director attached -- Universal has announced that 'Jurassic Park 4' will be hitting theaters June 13, 2014.
